Kimsmom? Okay?

Post  Paradox on Sat 30 Apr 2011, 9:45 am

You're in the southeast, how are you doing?

I guess because in my old line of work I followed a tornado from one end of the county to another and saw the destruction that a small one can create I am horrified at what happened.

Thank you so much for thinking of me. I am sorry I missed this post. We are safe. The storms missed us going both above us and below us. We were truly blessed. We have a friend in Ringgold, Ga. who was coming back from dinner and he stopped under a gas station ledge and was putting stamps on his bills. He looked up and the tornado was coming up over the building across the street right for him.

He sped out of there and tryed to out run it and some debree hit his passenger window and smashed it coming through his truck and hit him in the face and went out the drivers side window. His truck is totalled from the debree and he was pretty shook up but is fine.

We had everything put in the house and the laundry room emptyed to go into if need be. I had a horrible headache due to the dropping of pressure. I even put the girls bicycle helmets in the laundry room to put on for added safty. Thankfully we did not even lose electricity but we did lose a lot of sleep staying up to keep watch.

One thing I want to mention: My husband is an ex-firefighter. He said more people get their feet cut up in storms due to the fact that it is usually nightime. Always remember to put your tennis shoes with socks right by your bed. This way you have them on and if your house gets damaged you are not walking on nails, jagged edges and broken glass.

I want to thank Risa for her thoughtfulness as well as Charlotte and anyone else thinking of all of us in the Southeast US.

Oh my goodness... that's terrifying! on the other hand, it looks like he wasn't seriously injured
and that's something to be thankful for.

And excellent advice! I will pass it further down. Thank you!

And once again, I am so glad you and our other Southern posters are safe and sound and their families as well!
