Photo-a-Day: Tornado Damage

iPhone photo

We have been through some bad storms and tornadoes the last few days.  Tuesday night high winds took out trees near our neighboorhood and last night the sirens went off 7 times between 3:30 p.m. and 2 a.m.  Lots of tornadoes sighted.  We've been without power since 6:00 last night and don't expect to get it until (hopefully) tomorrow.  There are more storms coming through this afternoon and evening.

This is a barn about a mile from our house.  We always check out the horses and cows that live here as we're driving into town.  I hear they all fled to the field and were OK when the tornado took out their barn.  Across the road from the farm the power lines are all hanging down.

David had the yard and pool looking pristine clean on Sunday and now it is leaf and debris covered, but that's the extent of our "damage".  We're thankful everyone is OK.  The kids had a 2-hour delay to school today which helped.

Praying for those families in the midwest who've lost family and property in the storms!
