Today was a wild weather day around here! We woke up to a storm and then spent the day awaiting horrific tornadoes and storms to hit our city...we didn't get out of school, but it was optional for parents that were able to come get their kids. So, by the end of the day I had 4 students. As soon as the day was over I ran to my car to race the storm home. By the time I got to the county line the sirens were already going off in the county that I work for and some students had to be returned to schools until the sirens were off.
I made it and actually we were extremely lucky that the storms didn't hit our area. However, across the river about 45 minutes from us, wasn't so lucky. Three towns were wiped out, including an elementary and a high school.
The pictures are devastating and the stories are even more so. On FB tonight the news reporters were passing around a story of a little girl between the age of 20 months to 3 years being found in a field and flown to the hospital unidentified. Luckily tonight she has been identified but is still in the hospital. I don't know her conditions, but if you do please pray for her and her family and all those that suffered loses tonight including the lose of homes. Usually Red Cross sets up in schools, but not in this small time of Henryville, Indiana. Just praying for them and the long road they all have ahead.
We are just lucky that all we got was a small thunderstorm.
Needless to say March came in like a lion in my neck of the woods!
Hope you and your family are safe tonight.
