Hail, Hail The Gang's All Here, Day 87 and 88

We had warm temperatures today, around 70, so the neighborhood was abuzz with kids out playing, people doing yard work, and friends sitting on porches chatting. It was a really nice day. After dinner, hubby and I took the dog for a walk and as we headed out I noted that it was very "yellow" outside. It is just about 1 full mile to go around our block and as we approached home, it was just plain very yellow outside and then I heard the sound of stuff hitting the ground - just as we reached the foot of the driveway. The kids were in our yard throwing a frisbee around when I shouted to get inside - all of us (including our furry child) managed to get inside without once getting hit with this......




Also included in this post is a photo of one of my favorite birthday gifts - my own Keurig 1 cup coffee maker - I can have coffee any time of day, in under 3 minutes, with virtually no cleanup! You must get one of these now!!!

Crazy weather! Glad you made it around the block before the hail started!

I think the single cup brewer is the way to go ~ hope to be ordering one soon!

What a cool coffeemaker, I will have to check that out sometime. And glad you made it home before the hail started... sounds like just about everyone had their share of crappy weather this past weekend, altho I will say I didn't see anyone sitting on their front porch in Kansas while we travelled around looking at the damage... LOL.

I would love to have a coffee maker like that! I'll have to check it out! My son lives in Texas and tells me about this kind of weather...one minute gorgeous, the next hail!! How weird! Glad you were able to take cover!

Mari said...

The weather can be so crazy! I don't like coffee so no coffee maker for me :(

Great shots! We have a Tassimo machine and I love it. I don't drink coffee and therefore don't know how to make it so I like that I can now make it for guests with the touch of a button! Glad to hear you are liking your new present.

I am buying myself a Kuering this weekend. I left (donated) my coffee pot to Goodwill when I left FL, because I wanted a Keurig, but just haven't gotten out to get one in the past 6 weeks....Dunkin Donuts is only 2 min away!
