Tornadoes and Oklahoma

My heart goes out to my fellow Okies from the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma. My cousin was in Moore, OK and is safe with her family but her home has been damaged. We still don't know the extent of the damage but thankfully her husband was home and took her and the newborn baby, Hope, away from harm.

We are located in SE OK and was in a tornado warning last night but it was north of our home. Today is suppose to be more bad weather and we are in moderate to severe risk.

I just wanted to let my readers know that if you are in an area that has a potential for tornadoes, get a plan. Locate your nearest storm shelter. Make sure it has water, diapers, wipes, and/or things to get you through the first critical days. We personally have not had time to install a storm shelter since we moved here but it has taken priority in the aftermath of what happened in the last couple of weeks in Texas and Oklahoma.

Thankfully all the people in Oklahoma that I've met so far are resilient people. We will get through this and get through another season of tornadoes. God speed for healing to those in the battered areas. Our thoughts are with you and your loved ones.
