A Day of Hail

A couple of Sundays ago, the Chase and Forest Hill Joneses visited the Beckers for a farewell-ish dinner. The weather was kind of crazy that day. As soon as we left Chase we drove through some ridiculous hail.

As you can hear, Mom wanted us to pull over but Dad didn't agree...

So we finally got to PA and enjoyed some delicious food. The lights kept going on and off while eating.

Ali was scared.

We experienced some hail there as well.

After the weird storm we noticed that a big tree had fallen down in their yard. So do you think Uncle Carl waited to cut it down? Nah, he jumped right on that!
Here are some entertaining videos of Uncle Carl, Kevin, and a Sawzall.

And there are some interesting conversations going on in the background. Including Ali talked about her paid one hour of entertainment that brought her mother to tears.

The Votes Have Been Tallied

After the dust settled there was a winner...Nancy Cienfuegos is the 2008 Gallery Idol Champ. It was a lot of fun and a great networking experience, so I am not too terribly disappointed. I want you all to know how much I appreciate all of your amazing support. It was incredibly humbling to see so many people take an interest in my work and success. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I can only hope that this experience will usher in bigger and better opportunities. Thanks again!
