Last night 4/14/11 in the Wonderful State of Oklahoma
We experienced storms that moved through out the state!!
In the evening my hubby was outrunning them trying to get home from work
The first tornado touched down just 2 miles north of the highway he was on!
My son was staying on the south side of Atoka which is only 5.8 miles from Tushka
They told them to take cover on the lower floor of the hotel in the laundry room
They could see the tornado and he was so scared and I won't even try to explain the fear I was feeling, he is safe but the damage that ripped through there was horrible
He is extremely lucky
I have not felt this fear since the May 3rd 1999 tornado that tore through Oklahoma
I was sitting in southern Oklahoma he was with his golf team and they were trying to make it home from a tournament there were tornado's everywhere and my Mom was in Moore where all the damage was at!!
Being an Okie I am used to the term tornado alley but let me just say this
you never get use to the fear that storms like this bring you, I have been so close to so many damaging storms, LOL okay they have been too close to me on many occasions
Needless to say we played phone tag all evening with my son and I stayed online talking to his fiance as she was talking to him as well.
That is right my son is getting Married I think I have been in shock so I just have not
shared the news I am so proud and so happy for them
Jerry and Tiffany
And I am so thankful to the Lord that he is safe today still shaken up a bit but he is ok
My heart goes out to those that were not so lucky! My heart always breaks when I know that people have been affected by disasters like this
I hope if any of my readers were in the path of this storm as it moved through Oklahoma and into Arkansas that you are safe today
Wishing everyone a wonderful Day
