Stormy…

Man, Mother Nature did not want to cut us a break these last three days. 

On Monday, it was dark and crummy here but Katie was having driving rain storms at work a mere 10 miles north.

The same went today as well. The weather these few days have turned Nathan into one scared little dude. I had to tuck him in under two blankets with a cadre of stuffed animals to calm him down.
