I’ve thought today that I should change the name of my blog to I Am Tired. I most certainly am very, very tired. And relieved.
This week has been pretty exciting in my life. We had tornadoes on Tuesday, literally all around us. It was a charged kind of night in more ways than one. On the way home from work, I learned that there were tornado warnings everywhere. There had been a tornado outside of Greenfield and it was heading east. We’re East of Greenfield. The sky was ominous to say the least.
My heart stayed in my throat for most of the evening. Jordan is in Creston and there were two tornadoes that touched down there. Alyssa, Ross and Abe were in town in three separate places. Aly and Abe finally made it home before Storm Number Two hit, carrying huge hail! Actually they were walking to our house when all of a sudden huge balls of ice started falling from the sky! You should have seen our yard COVERED by golf-ball sized hail.
Thankfully, no one sustained injuries. Many of our neighbors and friends have lost some property and live stock, but our neighbors are safe.
I am hoping to have a night very soon during which there are no storms, no lightning, no thunder and no radios going off warning of impending danger.
Cause. I. Am. Tired.
