Tornadoes May 24, 2011

Good grief was it a crazy day here in Oklahoma. There were tornadoes everywhere! Me, T & our Pup Leela are all okay though. We were lucky. The small town 7 miles from us was hit hard. Homes completely destroyed. We actually had debris from the town in our yard. The fork in the picture was found with the prongs stuck into the dirt. Glad no one was standing there when it came hurtling out of the sky!

Homes to the North of us were also destroyed. My friend Misti rushed up there to help people search for their missing pets & help with the clean up. She even brought cold beer. She's awesome. There has been so much damage in Oklahoma today. My friend Dan lost his house. His parents lost theirs, and they lost their family business. They make beef jerky. Mike's Beef Jerky to be specific. I'm not sure what they are going to do. Thankfully though, they are all safe & unharmed.

I cannot stress enough how important the RED CROSS is in times like this. If you can, donate. If I learn of any other specific places you can donate to help, I will let you know. Keep all of these people in your thoughts, as well as those in the other affected tornado devastated areas.

We're so glad you guys are safe. I was kind of hoping the drug dealers house would somehow be destroyed though.
