    Laurie, I live in Kansas so I totally know what you are going through. Prayers are on the way for your saftey. It always helps me to ask God to send his angels to surround me and my loved ones and the town and keep us safe. It helps keep me calm thinking of an army of big strong angels sheltering our town with their wings. (((hugs)))

    We are on a "tornado watch" here until 10:00 pm. This is just a watch and not a warning. It's been a very humid day here and that often sparks some big boomers. Laurie I hope you are all OK and will check back in as soon as it is safe to do so!!

    I have always been very nervous in the spring because of tornadoes...thankfully they seem to hit when I am not around. One year, there was one of Lake Erie when my paretns went to Cedar POint with out me, and another hit Cincinnati on a weekend I had come home from school...Hope all is well Laurie!!!

    It is scary. I have been through 3 hurricanes and 1 tornado. With hurricanes you can prepare, with tornados, it is so fast, so little preparation. My 12 year old daughter went through Hurricane Georges ok but since we are moving to Oklahoma in June she is absolutlly terrified. She watched the movies Twister and Where the Heart Is (before we found out we were moving) and now she is obsessed with tornados. I was at work one day and she called me from home crying because she said the clouds were twirling and she thought it was a tornado. I told her to go to my neighbor's house and I rushed home from work. She hasn't seen the house we are moving to but I assured her that it has a storm cellar. She is still frightened. Hang in there Laurie.

    Laurie, please let us know that you are alright as soon as you can. Each of us understands the terror of these storms and the fear is a horrible feeling.

    Prayers and hugs go out to you.

    I was watching the news this a.m. and saw the storm that hit W. Virginia - man they're wicked We seldom have tornados here in Utah, but a few years ago we had one touch down in downtown SLC - that was the scariest thing I've ever seen and even more scarier was that people wanted to get close to it out of shear curiosity turning out to be pure stupidity. Mother Nature does get in a really bad mood at times doesn't she.
    Prayers for safety to all who live in tornado country!!!!!
