La Jolla, CA

Today we headed to the coast to take some pictures in La Jolla (pronounced 'La Hoya' for people not from the area). Here are just a few of the many reasons why we love San Diego:

Quad City Air Show

This afternoon on a whim Brett & I decided to head out and see if we could catch a glimpse of the Quad City Air Show that is in town this weekend. We found a great little spot to watch the show. Brett was our designated photographer:

(And yes, that is a cornfield in the foreground)

As always, you can click the photos to enlarge them.

And my personal favorite:

Excellent job, Brett!

We plan on heading back out there tomorrow to catch more of the show, so hopefully I will have more pictures to share with you then. : )

Too Close for Comfort...

...but we are still here.

It's that time of year again. Time for severe thunderstorms, and even the occasional tornado. Here is our forecast right now from (Click to Enlarge)

Don't be alarmed if you hear on the news about some tornado action here in Eastern Iowa. We did have an F3 tornado touch down in an area close to, but not in Davenport. No need to worry because we are all fine here. The cat is hiding out in the closet because he is afraid of the thunder...but other than that the occupants of the Vowles house are doing well. Here is a picture from our local news station's (KWQC TV6) website of the tornado:

(I should emphasize that this picture was NOT taken by me.)

It was definitely a stressful morning. They initially told us that we would not be in the path of this dangerous storm...but the weather people were wrong again. The tornado sirens went off while we were picking up some groceries at Wal Mart. We quickly left the store and went home. Fortunately, the intense storm only lasted for about 20 minutes and aside from some typical flooding, it passed through Davenport without incident. We are still under a tornado watch until 7 pm tonight, but we have nothing but blue skies and sunshine outside right now, so I think that we are in the clear.
