    We had one of the worst thunderstorms and some of the most rain I can ever remember Sunday evening. We had little damage, blew some of our corn over in the garden, which Floyd was able to straighten up, and blew our tomato vine over we had staked near the back garage door, Floyd started to go out the door and there it was across the doorway. We were very disappointed as it was doing so well, I counted 25 or more tomatoes on it at one time. But we straightened it up, and believe it will live.
