I am writing this from work, so I do not have any pictures to show.
Last night terrible storms swept through Arkansas, Tennessee,Kentucky and I'm sure various other states. There were 16 confirmed tornadoes in Arkansas alone. The boys and I were at the Community Center when the storms struck our town. We had gone there to swim and get some exercise. We were told that we had to get out of the pool because it was lightening. I should have stayed at the Community Center until the storms past, but I had my boys with me and I wanted to get them home where my husband was waiting. It was raining so hard that I could barely see the road, and the wind almost blew me off the road. My husband was very concerned. When we reached our house, he was outside watching for us. He had started his car and was about to come look for us. We were lucky last night. We did not sustain any damage to our home or property, and we are all safe and sound today. Unfortunatly, there are people in other parts of this state and in other states that were not as fortunate as us. There have been 13 confirmed deaths in Arkansas, 32 confirmed deaths total in all of the states effected by the storms last night. I heard on the radio that the American Red Cross is in desparate need for blood. They are also in need of monetary donations, but at least giving blood is free. Maybe not painless, but free. If you are interested in giving blood, you can call 1-800-RED CROSS and find the location of the nearest donation site, and you may also make monetary donations at this number. But please, if nothing else, say a prayer for those in need today, or if your not the religious type, send wishes of well being to those in need. Positive energy is the key to goodness!
