We are okay

Just to let everyone know we are okay. No damage or tornadoes here. A lot of lightening and very strong winds. We had some items blown over and a couple small limbs down but nothing major. A tornado was spotted south of town but it was very weak and did no harm. However please pray for folks in the town of Picher Oklahoma in the Northeast part of that state and Seneca Missouri in the southwest part of our state. Nearly 20 people have been killed by a tornado that started in Kansas, went into Oklahoma and ended up in Missouri. Picher which has about 800 residents had a 20 block area wiped out. It looks like a war zone. So please keep them in your prayers as well as folks in Georgia where I understand they had a tornado also.
I will try to be on later to do a proper post and share more but I am not feeling well enough right now. I had a bad attack of vertigo last night and am still feeling the effects today. God bless.

Dear Michelle,
I've been reading of the horrible weather in your part of the US and hoped to see an update from you.
My prayers are with those affected by all the bad storms.
Take care of yourself and I'll look forward to your next post my dear friend.

Glad you are OK! :-) Some of my hubby's relatives live in SW Missouri and they are all OK too. Praise God! We are actually headed down that way for vacation soon. Praying for all of the families affected...

glad you're okay. We used to live in "tornado alley" so I don't really miss that feeling of panic!

I'm glad you are okay! We had the top of a big poplar tree snap off from the strong straight line winds the other night and landed in daughter's garden. It only damaged a few plants.
Praying for all those families who lost loved ones and homes.

So glad to hear you guys weathered the storms okey. We did too although we did have the tornado sirens going off and it was pretty dicey. Hope you are feeling better physically.
((hugs))
