Last night we got fortunate again. My sister called me because she was in a neighboring city and was about to leave to come home. She asked me if I heard anything of a tornado coming towards our city..."WHAT???" was pretty much my reaction. I turned on the news and saw that a tornado had hit a neighboring city west of us and we were directly in it's path. It was a pretty big one at that. Then of course the sirens starting going off and the weatherman warned everyone to take shelter. So Nate and I were getting Kaden in a safe spot in the basement and all of his things (the little booger slept right through it) and then just continued watching the news. How I understand it, about 5-8 miles outside of our town the tornado went back up. However, it touched down again, twice (I think)...this time in the neighboring city east of us, where my sister was. She was lucky enough to have a friend who lived there and had a basement so she was safe.
I just wanted to ask everyone to keep the people affected by these storms in your prayers. Total death rate from these storms are 2 with many injured. I will leave you some pictures from the first tornado that touched down. I did not take them but was e-mailed them from a friend. I do not have any pictures from the other tornado but saw the damage first hand today...it is so sad.
