Twist and shout!!

Last night we had a tornado warning which was quickly upgraded just a minue later to a watch…we ended up with a fierce storm with torrential rain and howling wind, thunder and lightening, but that was it. We were lucky. Several places nearby got tornadoes,which flattened buildings, tossed cars into mid-air, tore off roofs, uprooted trees, and caused lots of damage.They also killed one person at a campground. Now 54 000 people are still without electricity and in this area it’s 18 000. Years ago I was near a tornado(in the next town 30 min. away) and even that was too close, but I remember the sudden pitch-black dark sky, the hail, side-ways rain, torrential rain and the trees bending down to the ground, and of course, no one can miss the “roaring freight train” sound or the sight of the actual funnel cloud itself. We had have LOTS of bad storms and tornado watches and warnings this summer but this one actually came to pass!

More stress: our 19 year old said he’s really sick: severe headache, stiff neck,and aches, I fear is meningitis, but my hubby thinks is merely university stress. He said he was going to see a doc, but I’m worried as he’s so far away and I haven’t heard from him yet, so is he laying in an ICU bed somewhere,or simply “forgot” to call? Please pray it’s nothing and he’s ok…
