Ruth???!!!!

I just got on the computer for the first time today and saw all the horrible tornadoes that went through your area last night! I was on the phone with my mom last night and she said that the tornado sirens were going off where she was, which is a couple hours south of you. I didn't realize how bad it was though! I hope all is well and you guys were safe. Thinking of you Sad

aw, thanks! we're fine, amazingly. you might have heard that the airport got hit by a tornado and we're REALLY close to the airport. It headed our way and came within a mile of our house. :eek: I'm just so thankful we were safe, our house is fine and we didn't even lose power! all in all, it actually didn't even seem like that bad of a storm at the time - even though we went down to the basement just to be safe. i had to drive past some of the damage today and couldn't believe it. so many homes totally destroyed, lots and lots of people and businesses without power. it's crazy. traffic came to a stop on the interstate, so i took some pics with my cell phone. i probably won't have time, but if i do, i'll upload them. Smile

thanks for thinking of us!
