We heard roaring and the wind was shaking our 5th wheel. Never having lived in tornado country, we had only heard a tornado sounds like a freight train coming. Well that's what it sounded like. Bob and I were terrified. We didn't want to go outside to get to a shelter because we have water ponding around our 5th wheel. What happens if we're wading in the water and lightning strikes the ground/water??

Finally fell asleep when things quieted down until Bowie woke us up at 5:45 a.m. (our usual time to get up during the week) so he could be fed. By the time we woke up the power was restored.
Today is my 5th day of working five ten-hour days. I am exhausted. The storm the night before, woke us up at 3:00 a.m. Hard to concentrate when you're dead tired.
At least we are in a place where the river does not come over the bank. Too much water at once does cause large ponds in some spots until the earth (and drains) soaks it up again.
Our thoughts go out to those in Wimberley, Austin, and New Braunfels who bore the brunt of these storms. Many lost their homes. The damage is still being assessed.
Stay safe and have a good weekend.
