I had every intention of posting some additional house pictures tonight, but due to the devastational tornadoes in my beloved state of Oklahoma, I've decided to postpone and stay tuned into the news.
|The spooky, unpredicting clouds|
We don't have basements in Oklahoma and unfortunately, we (as in me and my family) don't have an underground safe haven either. We DID take cover in our neighbors safe room earlier today while sirens were blaring with 4 adults, 4 kids, 2 cats and a dog. That was fun. Even a safe room made entirely of concrete is not the preferred method for staying safe. After seeing the news, I'm sure you would agree. Tornadoes can DEMOLISH and FLATTEN your house down to NOTHING.
Luckily, my little town wasn't affected by the devil. The same can not be said for a town just an hour north of us. Moore, Oklahoma had areas that were completely demolished. At last check, there were 60 confirmed deceased. This town isn't a stranger to tornadoes. In 1999, they were wiped out.
There were 2 elementary schools directly affected and tonight, they are still trapped in debris. It doesn't sound good. As a parent, my heart just aches for the families.
Yesterday, there was a large tornado in another Oklahoma area--Shawnee--outside of Oklahoma City. Friends in Tulsa were posting pictures of debris that traveled the 100 miles via the tornado and ended up in their yards and neighborhoods. They are scary beasts.
If you are the praying kind, PLEASE PRAY FOR ALL AFFECTED. It's predicted that tomorrow's forecast brings the same, if not worse weather.
So, forgive me for not posting superficial pictures of my home. I'm sure you all understand. I'm going to hug my kids, kiss my husband, pat my dog and thank the good Lord that we are safe and unharmed.
And then later, I'll try not to consume an entire bottle of Captain or eat that box of brownies that is SCREAMING my name.
