Were not in Kansas

But, It sure felt like it, A few of you have e-mailed to check on me after hearing what went on in my community last night. All of my friends and family are safe, a lot of home destruction, and some hurt, but no deaths.
It actually jumped over the hospital 1/4 mile from one of the destroyed buildings. God is good. Please keep all the families who lost there homes and businesses in your prayers.

Wendy I'm so glad you are ok. The Colonial Heights tornado yesterday is about a few miles up the road from the base. The tornado alarms went off here too but I'm so grateful to say nothing hit here. And the one in Colonial Heights was nothing near the ones in Suffolk. So glad you are doing ok though.

Wendy, when I heard about the tornados in Suffolk and Colonial Heights on the local news on Monday, my heart just dropped. You and your family immediately popped into my head and heart. I am so, so glad to hear you are okay. We will keep those effected close in our prayers.
