I am here in the OKC area and it has been a couple of rough weeks. We have been pretty much out of range until Friday night. We had some strong winds at least, I'm not sure if they were tornado or straight line. There is a 30+'elm across the chain-link fence around my backyard. The tree was ripped off pretty much at the ground line. There was a section of root on the other side of the fence. We have a friend with a chainsaw who will come and cut it up for us. The tree also landed on an old swing set we were going to take down anyway. And while they are getting that, will also take the peach tree that died - I think it got some sort of fungus or disease as the branches were just splitting open. Daughter and I spent a couple of hours in our central hallway with our mattress over our heads and hubby was close enough he could have ducked under if need be. The last time we had one that close we were in Houston off of Fry Road (west side) and lost the stockade fence and a green corrugated plastic patio cover. Then the tornado went diagonally across the intersection and took the roof off the kitchen area of that house. I wish we had something more secure here, but as renters we don't have a lot of choice. PTL we are all fine and so are many friends we know of.

It's also good to hear that there are so many people across the nation praying for us here in OK too. A big hearty THANK YOU to all from not just me, but all the rest of us too.
Gloria

When all your desires are distilled, you will cast just two votes: to love more and to be happy.

I have friends in Oklahoma City. It has been rough there. All prayers are appreciated!
The weather is very strange lately, but God IS in charge. We must pray, pray, pray and trust in Him.

Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!

No, I don't live in Ok although I have good friends who live in Lawton (SW OK). I live in south Florida so we deal with hurricanes mostly and while they too can be devastating at least we thankfully have days of warning.

We need to trust in God now, as the sequester has the National Guard going off work this summer. We all need to pray for everyone in need.

I am sitting here playing on Sparkpeople and watching the weather channel to see what the weather will be like for the weekend and there is nothing but news reports of new tornado warnings in the Oklahoma City area.
Please pray for all those folks that the storms will beak up.

and PS this is also the beginning of hurricane season as well
