I'm Not Scared!!!








                                              ***Video Footage From My Front Porch***



I just wanted to let everyone know we’re all okay.  A tornado attempted to form over our home; it roped out, and returned, touching ground east of us. 
The state of Oklahoma has had numerous tornadoes this evening, one of the worst touched down south of us hitting several homes, farms, and businesses. 

Our son’s friend’s ranch, the one he works at part time, had their barn destroyed, and a tractor trailer flipped over, along with other farm equipment/machinery.  The animals are all running loose, they’ll need to found, returned, and checked out to make sure they’re not hurt/injured. 

Sending out prayers to all friends and families in Oklahoma and other states affected by these severe storms today.

  1. Glad you all ok. Tracking down and getting animals back where they belong isn't fun, helped my neighbor numerous times with his cows and horses. Prayers sent

  7. Sweet Sandy - i don't know how you can handle all of these hurricanes. the first sign of a bit of wind and i would be running to the hills. bugging out would be a full-time job! but i am so glad that you guys are prepared and know when it's time to hit the road. i am sorry for your son's friend's family farm - that is awful to not just lose and have damaged equipment, but to have to go out and track down the animals - that sucks.

    you and yours are always in our thoughts and prayers! sending much! your friend,

    1. Sweet Kymber,

      We've survived tornadoes, hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes. Being aware of your surroundings, weather, and prepared is the secret to survival.
      Sending hugs and love to you both.
      Sandy

  8. I think the reason I get a queasy stomach every time we have high winds up here in northern MN is because of the tornadoes we had while I was growing up back in Illinois. Our were never as frequent as the ones in your area, but I know the damage they can do.

    So very glad to hear this latest one missed you and your home . . . as I'm sure you are, too. Hoping the damage in your area was all structural that can be replaced.

    1. Mama Pea,

      Stress dealing with a storm or an event will cause your stomach to feel queasy. My stomach has been bad for a while dealing with this weather and the stress of everything. No damage at our home thank God. Sending prayers to all affected in these storms.
      Thank you dear friend for your warm thoughts.
      Hugs,
      Sandy

  12. I've been watching the Weather Channel about the tornadoes out there, and am glad that you were not hit . Looks like Oklahoma as a whole has really been beaten up. Georgia has been lucky, so far.

    1. Harry,

      I'm glad as well, and will keep everyone affected by the tornadoes in my prayer. Oklahoma was beaten up pretty bad that night. I'm glad to hear Georgia has been lucky.

      You're so right.....too close for comfort.
      I would rather be living in another state and not dealing with these tornadoes.
