The Tornado & Emma's 1 Month Appointment

Oh yes, you read that right...
A tornado decided to come through around 2:30 AM....

And Wow; between the wind, hail & rain I'm not sure what was louder.
Seriously it was so loud & the windows were just a shaking.

Luckily, other than numerous trees down on our fences our property didnt sustain any other damage...
And luckily we have power again!

However, a neighbors porch was completely blown away along with part of his roof. Numerous barns & buildings are in pieces & we won't even begin to count the numerous trees that are down.  A church nearby has a tree through the fellowship hall.

Just a glimpse of what we saw this morning...

The white pieces you see are parts of a neighbors silo blown to pieces...the white on the road & side of the road are what's left of what it was storing

Where the silo once stood.  Notice the white powder on the side of the red building.

And when you look closely you will notice the roof is gone---this building is actually his house

The church yard which lost several trees...I know it's hard to see.
I forgot to zoom.

The community has really been pulling together today to help clean things up.

But on a happpier note
Miss Emma had her one month appointment & looked great.

Glad you are safe. That storm was so large that we could be living in different states and felt the same destruction around us. We are safe but neighbors lost trees and 7 poor souls were lost here in Georgia in the past 24 hours due to the storm.

And Emma is a beautiful young lady, you are blessed.
