Dyngus Day party interrupted...

Well, I had the brats ready, food all out,
and then this happened...


...and my party moved to the basement.

It was a little too close for comfort last night, but we made it through safe.  However, I am praying for  those that lost loved ones in this latest storm.  I am hearing 7 people died in Arkansas last night and many are unaccounted for in Vilonia, where it got hardest hit.  It has been a very tough spring around here and many people could use your prayers as they mourn and rebuild.

Here is just a little of what it sounded like at my house during the worst of the storm...

Lots of people are without power today. We have no phone, cable or internet...I am up at the church using theirs.

...and more is coming this afternoon.
ugh.

I have never seen the weather map like that; how it nearly wraps around itself. YIKES!
We've been warned up here too, since it's been so cold, they are saying a stormy summer.
Not good, not liking the storms.
Isn't it 'bout time for Jesus to come back? ;)
