Lots going on

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

While waiting for the layoffs to hit at my hospital, my husband got laid off. The tornadoes that went through on Friday hit his workplace and destroyed everything. They most likely won't return. Even if they do, it will be months.

He was there working when it hit. Very scary. I was at home running around in the dark with my dog trying to figure out where to get to since we don't have a basement. My husband was on the phone with me the whole time. I listened as he and his co-workers were weathering the roof and walls crashing in and then an ensuing gas leak. It was my turn next, I heard the roaring of the tornado come by the house and thankfully it passed us by.

We spent the weekend without power. Things are somewhat back to normal now. I'm working hard at getting a grip on things. All over the place.

    Oh, wow, too many difficult things at once. I am glad you survived and your dog and husband survived!

    The weather has been so scary this year. I'm so sorry about your husbands job, but so glad you both survived. Some storms have been really close to us also. Take care, stay safe. ((Hugs))

    I am so sorry. We were down in the basement in a storage space we have under the front door entrance. We had my laptop and our phones and our dog, too. Our subdivision was hit hard in 1967. We were not living here then, but it's always a possibility.

Best to you! emoticon
