Walking Path Demise

Saturday, June 15, 2013

It's sooooo good to be home! Asher and I went for our walk this morning. But we were stopped short.

Two EF-1 tornadoes went through just miles from where we live on Thursday night. Lots of the metro area was without power still on Friday evening. We're blessed to only have some trees down. We walked around to the other end of the path and came in to see what the view was from that angle.

Looks like it will be a little while before we'll be walking the full path end to end!

We ventured over to the marsh lands. Oops! Looks like it took a hit too. There had been some "Do Not Cross" tape up, but it was down, so we walked on.

We saw several trees like this ...

Yes, someone will be busy with some cleanup for a little while. And perhaps we'll find a new path to walk until the cleanup is complete. I'm thankful it was simply some trees that were damaged.

    Glad that it was just some trees down and not homes that were destroyed! It was a scary night for sure. Welcome home...I am glad that you had a nice week with your family and that you were able to spread the Spark with them. BTW, congratulations on your popular blog post!

Hugs,
Evelyn

    A friend's home in Marietta was barely missed by a tornado. He said it hit his neighbor's house. I'm glad all is okay at your house. emoticon

    Yikes! Same things here, we still have some without power and there were trees down all over too. Fortunately no one in my area was hurt but a 4 year old was killed by a tree falling on him at a park in Richmond :-(

    It is the journey. We often have detours in our journeys. Do we let them stop us or approach from another direction. Maybe we find that we need to follow a different path for a while. I missed you and your awesome insights when you left Spark People and took a different path for a while. I tried to connect with a couple of your friends and groups to learn how you were doing. So glad to have found you again.

So happy for you and glad your home was okay.

    Welcome home Cathy!
The storms were powerful. I'm thankful my husband walked in the door just minutes before it hit. While I was out and about yesterday I noticed how it hit one end of a street really bad and the other end of the street was not touched. I am so glad you are home safe and sound and that your home was untouched. I missed you! So glad you had a great time with your family! Enjoy your weekend! emoticon

    Thankful too that it was only the trees - love trees very much, but better that than your home!

    Wow! You'll have to find a new path until your others are cleared. Might have to do some creative walking. Glad your property is ok.

    I would give to have and area like that to walk in. All I have here in the desert is sand and cactus, not to mention the 3 digit heat.
