Some of you may have read my post yesterday about the storms headed our way. Little did I know that just a couple of hours after that, I would be watching live television footage of a one to two-mile wide tornado, destroying everything in its path. The path where I used to live. The path where we have many friends and family. It is hard to describe the feeling in your gut while observing the tornado and knowing that it is nearing your parent’s home. I had just talked to them a couple of hours before. They were very weather aware. They had a plan. I resisted calling them knowing what was happening. But finally I couldn’t stand the waiting and I called. Dad answered…..what a relief. His next words were, “We’ve been hit”. So yes, their house was hit, but not flattened. I talked to both of them and they are good. They have damage, no power and now, no phone, but they are so fortunate. Will let you know more as I learn more. Thanks to so many of you who have contacted me. Moore, Oklahoma is destroyed and devastated. Other areas were hit as well. There have been many fatalities. Oklahoma is strong. Oklahoma is tough. Oklahoma is thankful for the many friends who jump in immediately to help. (So much so….my own kids were turned away last night from getting through to my parents.) Please keep these folks, the rescuers and the many recovery workers in your thoughts and prayers.
