This last week I mean. Talk about happy and sad all in one short week. We had a young soldier from WI killed in Afganistan just a week or so before his first wedding anniversary. The tragic storms in the south, and then to lift the spirits the Royal Wedding. I sure hope this is enough for the year. How I pray for peace.
Reading Beth's post about the tornado's reminded me of one we had here years ago. I don't know if I blogged about it on spaces before but I'm going to now. Guess your stuck again, lol. We all stood outside watching the clouds, (it was night so the dark didn't help much) while my youngest sister kept hollering to get inside. When it was over we heard that the area on the hill east of us had some damage and only the fire dept. was there to help. It took the roof off the high school where I worked and damaged a few houses in the area near the school. Damaged the roofs on a few houses and moved a camper (travel trailer) from one side of a driveway to the other.The fireman had to stay all night (Jack was on the dept. at the time) and no one had any power up there. We didn't get anything where we were. We are tucked down between hills on both sides and I guess that helped some. I pray it always does. Well the lady that own the restuarant by us called Mom and she was making coffee for the firemen and the people around there and wonder if we could take it up. Sure, so off we went. She making the coffee, we kept taking and serving it and some of the people had donuts to serve. We kept this up all night and the next morning the lady from the Red Cross came, took all the publicity and left. I guess she didn't feel the damage was bad enough. That left me with a great deal of disapointment in the organization at that time. I'm glad to report they redeemed themselves when we had the flood.
