We had some excitement toward the end of the day yesterday. As Marti was assisting a client ordering and Charlotte was showing a family their slideshow, the sirens began to sound in Spicer. Marti peeked outside and noticed the clouds rotating just to the west. All of us quickly piled into the bathroom (the safest place in the building) and anxiously waited through the storm. As we ventured out, we noticed only a few brances from the weeping willow in back had been taken down. Amazingly, that was the only damage here!! Buildings just down the road, as well as the baseball field, sustained much more damage. Many homes in the area were also affected. We certainly feel lucky! Neither of us were able to take any photos during the storm, but seeing the images and footage on the news was incredible. What a day!
