Hey guys - I am back!!!!!
What a crazy week it has been. No home phone, no electricity and no cell phone coverage for a couple of days. We have a generator, so that was very helpful. I felt guilty, knowing people sooo close to me were sifting through what was left.
I felt like a storm chaser trying to get home before the first storm hit. We literally were running out of the school to get in our car and race home. As soon as we got home, we had to take the first safe place we could find. I sat and listened as it sounded like the roof was being pulled off my house, but it eventually got louder and louder and I knew it was hail...I was so thankful to hear that sound. We spent much of a 6- 7 hour period in our safe zone. The tornadoes kept coming, one after another and another. 2 came through our neighborhood, an EF5 and an EF2. I heard the EF5 - it sounded just like everyone says, a train.
I don't have pics of my area downloaded yet...but here are some pics of my family's property. We are all sooo happy no one we know was hurt. All the damaged property can be replaced...just going to take time to get it done.
This used to be a 50 x 90 ft shed. These are some old cars my dad wanted to give to his kids...now they are going to the junkyard. There are 2 Cadillacs, an El Camino, an old Impala (supposed to be mine) and his old farm truck.
Always take warnings seriously and take your safe place!
