So Blessed ............................

Saturday was a very stormy day , we had rain and a little wind , but about 20 miles south of us tornadoes touched down and left a huge path of destruction. Although we weren't in the path of the storm , it was a very tense day because my daughter and niece were working in the area Saturday as the tornado hit. It touched down a couple miles from my daughter's workplace , my niece was about a 1/2 mile away from the Lowe's that was destroyed , thankfully they were o.k. and there was no damage at their workplaces. I also have family very near the area , after several calls , we finally found out everyone was safe and had received no damages. My friend Peggy is about 60 miles south of us , she has pictures on her blog of damage in her area ~ Click Here ....... http://hiddenhavenhomesteadtoo.blogspot.com/2011/04/tornados.html , thankfully her family and home weren't in the direct path of the tornado. Her friend was in the path of destruction , but she's safe and wasn't hurt. My Aunt's sister had a tree fall through her house , but everyone was safe there also. It's really amazing to see all the damage left behind and hear of so few deaths. My heart breaks for all the people who lost loved ones , please say a prayer for everyone that has been affected by this storm.

So relieved to hear you are okay. I must say, whenever I hear about weather events I immediately think of all my blogger friends. Blessings.

That is so scary. Happy to hear your family is OK. Except for floading the past few years, we are lucky around here not to have severe natural disasters. Yes, we are blessed.
