I've received a several emails from out-of-town friends about the storms in our area over the weekend, since it made national news. The weather was different for everyone around here. My parents, who live a half hour away, only had rain. We had 2 separate hail storms on Saturday night. The first one happened around 6pm and shortly after that a tornado siren was sounding. No tornadoes touched near our home, thankfully, and we were only under the warning for an hour... which was good since we had dinner reservations for Bob's birthday. LOL The 2nd hailstorm happened around midnight that night. Very unusual to have hail twice in the same day.
Bob's State Farm office is in a different area of St Louis and that area probably sustained the worst hail damage of anywhere. Needless to say, he & his staff will be very busy taking claims today & probably all week. The airport is also in the area & my sister's car was parked in an uncovered lot over the weekend while she was out of town. She came home to a badly beat-up car. Add that to the list of claims from Bob's policyholders... ;-)
Bob turned another year older yesterday. We celebrated his birthday on Saturday night at a restaurant and then again on Sunday night at our house with family. Bob also went to the Cardinals game with my dad yesterday. They each got a mini replica of the 2011 World Series trophy with their paid admission. Their seats were in the Champions Club (an all-inclusive area with food + drinks) which was a Christmas gift from my sister. Fun day for them, except the Cardinals lost.
In addition to celebrating his birthday, I also managed to get quite a bit accomplished. I finished choreographing a new Zumba routine that I'll be using in class today and finished 4 new scrapbook pages. Slowly trying to get through old photos from last year that I still haven't used yet.
Like this event. My friend's daughter & I share the same birthday. And I always tell her we're cool girls. Well even without the shared birthday we're cool girls, but that's beside the point...
Time to put on my dancing shoes & go teach ZUMBA!
Have a great week, everyone!
