After the storm

We had  a tornado rip through our town on Good Friday.  It has been classified as an EF3 or EF4, and did quite a bit of damage.  There were 2 fatalities, 47 people hospitalized, 7 of which were critical.  150 homes destroyed, 100 damaged, and many business destroyed as well.  All of these photos were taken just miles from our home.  We saw the tornado from our kitchen window, it was a bit scary to say the least.  I am still thanking God for sparing us, that was a close call.  I did not take the photo of the tornado, that came from someone else.  But at least you can see just how big it was.

Hey, Thanks for taking time to read my blog. :)

Thank Goodness you are all okay! I pray healing and restoration over your town and those affected by the storm.

Right before we moved to Nashville in 2000 a tornado went through downtown and then right before moving back to Ohio one tore through Frankin where we were living. Seems like TN always gets hit pretty hard.

I read the story of the pastor in Murfreesboro who was out hiking and got caught in it. What an amazing testimony of faith!
