Blown Away

You may have heard about the tornadoes that struck NC on Saturday.  Wow.  
Our house/neighborhood was spared, but we have friends who were not.  The devastation is incredible.  Please keep NC in your prayers.  There is so much damage.
Some family friends lost their barns and found one of their horses a football field away, 30 ft in a tree.  Stories like this are becoming commonplace (but no less shocking) as reports roll in.  It saddens me to see so many families and poor migrant workers who lived in mobile homes that were completely swept away, leaving them with only the clothes on their backs.  There were more than 15 deaths in the state and some are still missing.

My prayers are with all the families who lost their homes and loved ones. I also have family in NC. They were the lucky ones.

Gretchen, those storms roared through here too, (North Alabama) and thankfully, we were also spared. My heart breaks for those who lives have been turned upside down....all are in my prayers...so glad you and yours are safe.
