Lions and Tigers and Bears!

Oh my! It was storming here recently and I’m glad we didn’t end up in Oz – though I am in Az. A tornado warning was in effect, the night before was sleepless – constant thunder roaring like a stormy sea, one hail storm after another, lightning shivering through the sky and a poor dog shivering all night.  But what a chance for pictures!

Two of my favorite places in the US. Cottonwood and Jerome. I adore Jerome and actually have a few great old pieces from that ghosttown, before it was a ghosttown. A tornado is so odd in AZ but that grey sky sure does predict a corker. Sea Witch

Sounds like Oklahoma! :) That's a typical Spring here in Tornadoe alley. Happy that you didn't blow away. Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

OMG I LOVE Jerome! Today I found out that one of my Grand-Daughter's Teachers has Family that was raised in Jerome and was a Miner there back in the day... how cool would that be to grow up there!? My BFF and I plan to go up and spend a long weekend at a Bed & Breakfast there, being an Artist we adore Artsy Communities that have a rich history like Jerome!
