1 in a million…

In parts of Missouri, straight-line winds of up to 80 mph felled large tree limbs and snapped some trees in half. Linda and I decided to go to the store- while in the market the storm hit- we prayer on our way home to be met by a {{popup roadblock.gif roadblock 450×299}}road block (see the tree off to the left- that covered the road) so we turned around (still praying- and went home the other way- well we met a road block there too- another down tree). Now there was NO WAY home! We ended up parking at the National golf course- climbing through the tree and walking home. We ended up (with the help of lots of people- clearing the tree off the road, retrieving the van only to be without power till 5ish Sunday (lost all our food). They cancelled the day of golf at the National because it took out the TV towers and trees were down all over. Here is {{popup neighbor1.gif neighbor1 450×299}}neighbor 1 and here is {{popup neighbor2.gif neighbor2 450×299}}neighbor 2. The whole neighborhood looked like this. We lost one dead apple tree and one new ceramic pot we owned for two days- not bad. I guess my prayers were answered.

    I wondered why I didn’t hear from you yesterday. My Mother-in-law came over for a visit and dinner last night and we were all in bed by 9:30pm- long day, but I was planning on calling you today. It has been a terrible day- just having an "off" day- but I will talk to you later this week. I’m sure glad you were ok and that your house only sustained minor damage. Thank god for watching over you!!

    I’m glad you are both safe! Downed trees and broken things always stink, but as long as you have each other safe in your arms, everything is okay! We love you and are glad you’re okay!
