> As I was getting ready to go to bed last night, the 10 o’clock news was showing video of Alabama’s tornadoes and ensuing damage. They said there were 25 confirmed dead. The newscaster said that the storms would likely calm down at 2am. Good, I thought, they should get some relief from the storms very quickly.
When I checked Yahoo news this morning, I saw 195 dead. I am shocked and saddened by what must have been a horrific night for so many of my fellow Americans.
This blog is supposed to be light and humorous and right this second, I feel that this needs to be addressed and respected. I hope that you will all join me in keeping all of these people in our prayers.
I also want to offer what may be a little known secret:
Also, if you haven’t already, ask an out of state friend or relative to call you (and your spouse and children) in the event of a disaster to make contact and make sure you are okay. Even if you cannot call out, they may be able to call in. We have done this after earthquakes, with my out-of-state mother passing word to each of us sisters that the others are okay.
Does anyone else have an emergency plan or suggestion?
