OK Oz, get me out of Kansas!

Friday, April 22, 2011

My area of TN and Tri-States, have had such terrible Tornadoes, straight line winds, lightning, flash flooding that communications of any kind- providing you have still got electricity? Has thrown most of us out of the loop and back into the Dark Ages- literally. No power for a lot of home and business owners. Travel is precarious and at times dangerous. Asking 4 Prayers on the Hubby who is still driving Fed Ex when needed. That is always an IF situation that sometimes can't be known driving conditions until you get there. Luckily, our power outage didn't last long. But since the DH had to work I have had almost 48 hr's straight of just cat-naps. Ever-Ready the might Storm Predictor and me the Storm Watcher. A few close calls with all of us ending in the Laundry Room (safest room) for all of us for hr's at a time with Sirens Wailing. No damages on our property either, thank goodness no lives lost or injuries to anyone in these areas involved.

Internet and Power are still If-y as repairs are made through out the area. So between the body being racked with all these Weather Changes, and the on- off power... I'm on and off the Internet indefinitely. It got so bad weather wise, even Cell use is on- off. Be safe my Spark Friends. emoticon Safe Travels if U can still afford it and a Happy Easter 2 all-

    We have been praying for all of the families in your area. What kind of crazy tornado season is this?

I hope all works out well for everyone!

    We are in the midst of a lot of rain, not so many storms--but if you read my blog about the Mississippi taking over Iowa, you know that rain is the last thing we need. I know that you have the Mississippi in your neck of the woods too, and unless something serious happens between here and there, she is really worked up and spilling over her banks. The wet weather needs to calm down for a while. Our new saying will be "April showers drown May flowers," lol.
Our youngest son is very afraid of storms, so I am very aware of the dangers they can bring. Please stay safe and snuggle up with those hounds when the wind howls. I'll keep your hubby and you in my prayers.
Gentle hugs,

    We are having tons of storms too and flash floods, tornado watches and warnings. We have had little damage. A limb hit our grill shelter and our old car.

Have a great Easter!! emoticon

    Sorry to read of the weather issues you're having to ride out. Is it 'the season' and typical of this time of year? Regardless, I'm sure it's not something you get use to. I hope for your (and your family's)continued safety. Hope we hear good news from you soon.
