Fence Building

We are heading to OKC today to build fence. My daughter called last night all upset (ie bad mood) about several things and said, by the way the fence blew down. She has two dogs and the neighbor is not too friendly so I am sure this was not a good thing. We are pressed against time for a major storm is coming in and will be here for the next 36 to 48 hours. It is not the rains I am concerned about, guess what??? WINDS. They are expecting some wind gust up to nearly 50mph. So we are going to hit the road and build fence. I just fear we won't get it done before the storms arrive and then all the work we will have done will be undone. We have experienced that before huh? It is already cloudy where we are, and OKC is more in the middle of the stormy weather than we are. So keep your fingers crossed we make it in time, that the dogs are safe and the fence stays up once we get it done. You know the cement will not have time to set before we get all this done. Good grief, I do not feel good about this. But she has two dogs, works, and I don't know what else to do.
I am not going to take time to take pictures, so I will just talk to everyone when we get home. Hopefully MY dogs will be ok while we are gone. Oh, we returned the baby last night and she cried when her momma took her and she reached out for me and had that look in her eyes, thank good ness it was dark and no one else could see the wetness in my eyes. It does a grandma's heart good to know the apple of her eye loves her! Can't wait to see that boy next! gotta run...he is loading the truck. bye

Be careful working in the storms. We are also expecting storms today.... the TV keeps talking about the severe weather that is heading towards us.....and it's not looking good. Stay safe and stay in touch.

Yikes! Be careful. Your weather is just a nightmare this year. I guess you really don't need me to tell you that, though, do you now?

I know your heart melted when your baby cried for you. I know I love it.

Good luck with the fence building. I talked to my friend at lunch. Her husband is in Tulsa and the wind is driving him crazy. I hope he starts home before the storm hits. It's blowing the storm in over here in NE Arkansas too.
