Dodged the bullet again

Postby kcoers » Mon Apr 03, 2006 9:43 pm

Well for the 2nd week in a row, we dodged the bullet with these storms rolling through here. The best thing is they are getting farther and farther away.

Us around Ashmore, Westfield, & Charleston didn't fare too well. At least 3 electric poles down along the highway. Roofs blown off. Bins ripped apart. House trailers flipped over.

I talked to my son, who lives near mattoon and he was telling me about some of the damage over there. Guess i should be happy that the only inconvience to us was the electricity being off for 12 hrs

we are flooding again today... rain not to stop for 3 days... that means the septic tank needs to be "drained" so that it dont back up into the post office.... not my plan for a Ted Everet sale day.

We didn't fair well at all. There were 24 people killed just a few miles from me. There was a 24 mile swat of destruction through two counties. One young family was wiped out(father,mother,two children). The dead ranged from a 77 year old to a child 11 months. Hundreds of people lost everything. The weather doesn't look very good for tomorrow. Please keep these people in west TN in your prayers.

I thought about you Frank when they reported the storms in TN. You and others are in my prayers. John.
