Tornadoes all around us!

Saturday was a very dangerous day here in NC. I live in Charlotte and we had torrential rains and really high winds, but nothing like the rest of our poor state had! The devastation in Raleigh, Cary, Fayetteville was just plain horrendous and scary! I'm sure you have seen the Lowe's Hardware Store in Sanford, NC that was demolished by a tornado that swept through the area. John and I spent the day packing up the things in the garage and we didn't hear about the devastation until we were eating dinner watching the news. My heart goes out to each and every person that lost a loved one, lost a home, lost their possessions and were hit by those terrible tornadoes. Prayers going out to all those mentioned.

We got hit by the tornado too (or I should say Wilson did), we were very fortunate. My brother lives in Sanford and was without power for some time.
My prayers go out to all.

Hugs,
Donna

We were shocked at the news telecasts of the devastation wreaked by the tornadoes. I kept thinking about you all living under that threat right now. Please be safe.

My prayers go out to all those people as well but I have to say that I'm really, really glad you guys are safe.

I don't read or listen to news much so just heard. Glad you are okay. I have dear friends in N&S and must check in with them.

Oh my, that is something that never happens here in Sweden - sounds very scary. I´m sorry for the ones who got caught in the devastation. :-(


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
