"The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound,

but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit." John 3:8


Here's some pictures of the wind damage our little town had last night. What a crazy night!! This first picture is my BIL and SIL's house and shingles is what caused their damage. SHINGLES!!! It was that windy. The second story damage was one of my nephew's rooms. Luckily, my SIL grabbed all the kids and went downstairs before it happened. His bed is right against that wall. Pretty scary.
I just went around town taking pictures. Never thought I would be "one of those people" :) My niece called this morning to see if we were ok because we live fairly close to my BIL's. We are, but she's in Cincinnati and wanted to see all the damage. So, of course, I'm taking these pictures for her...not for my blog :)
Some people still didn't have electricity. Can't be because of these downed wires. Thank God there wasn't any kids walking to school and wanted to check out the tree.

I feel so bad for these people.

Hey! You were down my street! :)Thank goodness we don't have any trees in our yard. I'm surprised our shack of a house didn't come crashing down last night :)

It was bad.. every window in my house was shaking.. I woke up to turn the TV on to see if there was a tournado heading our way and just as It turned on we lost power. I started to worrie just a bit and got the kids out of bed and was starting to head to the basement.. when DH called me from work and I was able to have him look up online what was going on.. and it was just a big storm.. so I put the kids back to sleep but away from there windows in sleeping bags on the floor. All night long things kept crashing into our house.. Thankfully it wasn't anything big and didn't leave damage from what I could tell.. but everytime I would fall asleep there was another crash that made me jump out of bed.. what a night.
