We have news releases of the devastating Tornadoes that have swept thru the Mid west, these must be very terrifying for thoes in the line of fire so to speak. We are lucky in NZ that we dont have the tornado season reach as far South as our Country.
We can however empathise with folk your are effected from our own experence over the last 6 to 9 months with Mine disasters & Earthquakes where several hundred people lost their lives. (The Quakes are still continuing)
I can only hope that our LJ members & their families living in the Mid West are all safe & secure & have been spared from any real damage or loss, to just let you know it is a small world & folk living thousands of miles away are thinking of you. God bless

Thanks for your concern. We had several tornadoes come through central Wisconsin on Sunday, April 10. No deaths here and very few injuries, but many homes destroyed. There is so much timber down that loggers will be kept busy for a long time. Before the tornadoes we had loggers come to estimate the cost of removing several trees that are close to our home which we can’t drop safely (anticipating the next wind storm and the possibility of them landing on our home) and the loggers have not gotten back to us because of all the more urgent work.

We were very blessed and were merely without electricity for several hours, but had no damage to any of our property. We, too, can emphathize with those who were not so blessed. It is very humbling to see how the power of a tornado can remove one structure and just a few hundred feet away there is no damage!
