~WE SURVIVED THE TORNADO...MORE STORMS COMIN'~

Our La Chaumière de Briarwood here in Edmond, Oklahoma, survived yesterday's storms.  The tornado that tore through our State missed hitting our house/neighborhood by about three or four blocks.  Our electricity was knocked out for a while, but strangely the moment the tornado passed over us the sky directly over our home was eerily calm and blue.  Those only a half a mile away were not so fortunate.

This tornado, an F3 or maybe even an F4, has destroyed so much.  My heart goes out to those people who have lost everything...and those who've lost only a little.  

Today we are gearing up for round two.

Hunkering down for the day.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR COMMENTS, THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!

Love to you...

I'm so glad you posted, Rebecca. I thought of you this morning when I was reading the news online this morning. Glad to hear you are okay. I've never had to deal with tornado warnings before, so it is scary when I hear about them here in Ohio.

Oh Rebecca. I don't know how it would be to live in an area with tornados. How awful! Please keep safe! We will be praying for you. I have changed the URL of my blog to www.antiquesandteacups.info. Hope to see you are fine and back up soon.

Thank God that it missed you. Too close for comfort I would say. I imagine you could hear it though. I feel bad for the people who were affected. I can't imagine going through that! Stay safe. I will be in prayer for you.

Oh, I`m thinking of what you have to deal with, Rebecca. Tornados must be the most scary wather that is. I`m just so happy that we don`have it here in Norway.

Take care

Having surviving twelve hours of Hurricane Ivan in 2004, I know all too well the fear associated with natural disasters. Walking outside the next morning the skies were the prettiest blue, the wind was blowing....then you realize your whole neighborhood looks like a bombed had hit it. My heart goes out to your neighbors. Prayers to you and your family, keep safe.

I hope you have a safe place to stay in a storm, as I think you have cement floors? (as in your kitchen). We seem to live in Colorado's tornado alley, but our storms don't often get so large. Cold and windy here on my first real day of summer vacation.♥♫

I'm so sorry, Rebecca, but glad you are safe. I'm up at the lake where I rarely watch TV or am on the internet so I just heard of the damage. Stay safe tonight.

XO,

Hi Rebecca,
I was on my way into work this morning at 6:30 when I heard on the radio about a tornado touching down in Oklahoma City. I thought of you immediately and had to check your blog as soon as I got home and in the door. I am so glad that you are safe. I will send up a prayer to keep you safe for tonight and always and for your neighbours as well. Take care my southern friend. Hugs, Laura
