Twister Hit Our Neighborhood

We are very lucky that it did not hit our street (it happened on Wednesday around lunch time). You can read about it in out local newspaper. A friend in our political group email DH asking if we are ok. This happened about 2 to 3 miles away from us. I was outside weeding our garden when the twister hit our neighborhood. I thought it was just a normal rain, I also heard the siren going on before the heavy rain hit our street. I thought there was an accident like a tree fell into a power line or a house. However, I was correct for the most part just missing the strong wind.

You see the images here and more images here. There are probably more but you search for it where I got this from. DH came home when I was taking a nap and woke me up telling me all about his ordeal to get home that took him an hour because his office is in the other side where the tornado hits. Then we live at the other side of it. He needs to cross where the it happens and all of the roads are close. He has to go east,north, west and then south just to go home. Which he usually just drive south to come home.

I hope those people who are affected have insurance for their houses. If not they will never get their houses back. Poor people, starting all over again. Mind you our area has a lot mountain and from what I heard the damages happened in the valley and our house is in the valley. Thank God we are not affected, the wind could have went where our house is. We are very lucky.

I wanted to post this yesterday but I have to do some phone calls and finish the kids lessons yesterday too. Happy weekend everyone.

I have a continuing program of research (What mother doesn't?) in the laboratory and in the field (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have five credits (four sons & one daughter, 1 joined the working community, 4 are being educated @ home ). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
