This morning, I was pleased to find my house standing, dry, electricity on, and no apparent damage. After checking on all my sleeping family members, my next thought was the garden. Whew, everything appeared healthy, happy, and unscathed!
I even found my first two tomatoes this morning. Seeing the little green globes made my mouth instantly water, knowing the bursting happy flavor I'd be in store for, soon!
More summer storms may come, but for now, everything, including the garden, is safe.

Update: I went out later this afternoon, and found three more tomatoes. Hmm, I'm thinking all the stress and work of planting my tomatoes indoors too early MIGHT just pay off! This is the earliest I personally have had tomatoes peeping out in my garden. :)
