I didn’t take any of these photos. I pulled them from news stations. I figure still it’s best to stay out of the way, however I brought old clothes with me today because I have some friends I still haven’t gotten ahold of. I’m not afraid to go hunting them down!
I was watching the Today Show this morning and I found it crazy, Al Roker is in Joplin, Missouri. You know how he does the weather (usually for NYC) and then says, “…now here’s what’s happening in your neck of the woods.” And I yelled through the house, “That is my neck of the woods!” Then I looked at my husband and said, “Man that’s not a line I ever expected to yell at the tv toward Al Roker.”
This has made both national and apparently international news because my mom is in Germany at the moment for work and I guess she found out around 1am our time this morning. I started to contact her but it would have been around 3am her time and I hated to wake her up to that news. So she woke my dad up at 1am.
The building I work in has around 600 employees. I’ve heard of one death and many lost houses. One lady lost her husband about 7 months ago and during the tornado last night she lost her house. Please keep her and all the people affected by this in your prayers and thoughts!
