Tornado

Well, I'm here to report that we survived a tornado and we're doing ok. At about 11:00 a.m. this morning, a tornado came down our street. Houses up and down the left side of our street all have substantial damage. Praise the Lord, though, we live on the right side of the street. There were no injuries in our neighborhood - just damage to property and houses. The house across the street has a tree through the living room. The house next to that one has the front windows blown out. We had damage to the yard --- flowers and trees uprooted --- but nothing compared to others. I'm still waiting to hear from Robert --- he was to fly out at the Navy Base today. I'll update as soon as I know more. Please pray for Pensacola, FL -- we are accustomed to dealing with hurricanes -- not tornadoes!

Glad you are all fine. I have a close friend who lives with her family in P'cola. On Buckland Drive. Do you know where that is?

Oh my goodness! I'm so glad you're all okay! That's too close for comfort--I never had one that close in good ole Ohio! (Although at work one hopped over the hospital once & we've gone through the routine of pulling patients into the hall too many times to count; but never that close at home......Again, so thrilled & thankful that you and the babies are okay!!
