Today is Saturday so naturally we had baseball excitement all day. As Joe and Austin got home from the last game, a storm ripped through here. Joe pulled into the driveway and, because it was raining so heavily, thought that he'd better stay put in the truck for a minute so he didn't get drenched. Actually, I'm just guessing that's what he was thinking. He could have been thinking about ice cream. Or the Cubs/Sox game. Or Corvettes. Or fluffy little bunnies. OK, maybe not fluffy little bunnies.
Anyway, for whatever reason, he paused and didn't get out of his truck right away. It's a good thing too. Because this is what happened in that minute that he paused.
See? If it hadn't been for the torrential rain, he would've gotten out and the branch would have hit him. Who says the rain is bad?
And the best part is - it didn't hit my new van!
