We're ok

Our town got hit with tornadoes today. Our neighborhood was one of the ones hit. We were lucky to be staying in the basement/garage at a friend's house. I didn't even hear it hit. We had 8 kids and I'm not sure how many adults in a bathroom.

Bob's ears popped. We opened her garage door when it was over, and we were shocked! Trees were down all over our neighborhood. Once he felt it was safe enough, Bob ran to our house to check it, and see about our neighbors. Most of our trees are gone, including the biggest one. It hit the playroom roof, but Bob climbed into the attic, and there's no water in there right now.

Some of our neighbors had damage like us, but others had much more damage. Everyone was ok, though.

Less than a mile from our neighborhood, parts of the town were pretty much leveled. I've only seen pictures, but it looks bad.

My dad and grandmother went to her church for the storm. My dad's glasses were blown off of his face right as he got into the building. Every car in that parking lot was hit with a tree. My grandmother's car was only dinged. My dad's truck  was pretty damaged.

Our church was damaged, but a church across the street from it was destroyed. A huge, historic home next door to that building had it's roof completely torn off. That home backs up to our neighborhood.

Our house is without power, so we're staying with my dad. We had to walk to get to my dad. There was so much destroyed, and so many roads were shut down. It was very surreal looking at all of the damage while we were walking on a normally busy road.

Luckily, we are all ok.

Oh my gosh! I'm so happy you all are okay! (I had yet to see *where* the tornadoes hit....) I'm glad to hear you have a place to stay. Hug those little ones tight tonight!

i'm glad you were safe during the storm; and it didn't sound like you had much time to be "scared"

all the best wishes for you in the recovery after.
