We're about 190 miles from Joplin. I'm thankful that, all in all, we've been respectively safe. And my heart is broken as I look at the many pictures and read the stories about the tornado and the lives that it affected--and took. I cannot imagine the fear the survivors must feel as each new storm rolls in. I'll admit that it's all given me a much more healthy respect for these wicked works of nature. I'm thankful that, even though we will be living in a mobile home (as a friend so tongue in cheek once said, "Don't you know, God hates mobile homes!"), DH's parents have a basement for shelter (next door).
A couple of pictures taken yesterday...
The view from the back of our warehouse.
The rain was just starting to come down in heavy sheets.
