"First a howling blizzard woke us,then the rain came down to soak us, and now before the eye can focus, CROCUS." ~Lilja Rogers

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn

                                                                             It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!  ~Mark Twain

                       Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.  ~Virgil A. Kraft
               In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.  ~Margaret Atwood

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.  ~Terri Guillemets

Tornado Touchdown 2-28-11

My First Photojournalist Assignment......
Monday we had some severe storms, through out the night. At 5 a.m. we heard on the weather that there was rotation over the small rivertown I live in ( so small everybody knows everybody and most are related to most of the people in the town =) ). I was in bed at this point, but woke up when I heard tornado sirens going off. So, of course, we herded down the stairs to the basement (a little bit dazed from being woke up).
In the morning we went down the hill to see the damage. There were really not alot of damage except a metal shed which flew over a house and landed beside a fence. There were a couple trees that were torn from the ground. The National weather service survey team reported it as a F1 tornado. The bummer thing was it was dark so I never got a glimps of it!!! =(
I thank God none were badly injured.
Sorry the pictures are blurry, I was shooting through a window =)
