What an inspiring read. To know that tragedy struck, but no one was hurt or killed is warming to the heart. And the father's and little girl's story brings it real close to the heart.

A friend of mine, when she was little, cried for her father to take her with him to the store. It was afternoon and time for her nap, but because she wailed and pleaded so much, he relented.

A half of an hour later, her room was destroyed by lightning.

It sure makes one wonder...

Great write up, thoroughly serious and very impressive style

Over 40,000 people were without power, businesses were destroyed, homes torn apart, but fortunately no lives were lost. As they surveyed the shambles, everyone was stunned but thankful they were alive.[[ well done]]

regards

K

Hi Carol,
I read through this one so fast, I didn't take time to note any mistakes. I only saw one where I believe an "a" would be helpful, but I don't reckon you're too worried about editing as you're so thankful your family is all ok, and so are we.
Life or death in a split second.
Well done with this one, Buck

First illness and then tornadoes. When are you going to catch a break, Carol? Did all of your family's homes remain standing and in one piece AND how is your husband?
Very well written as always. My heart was in my throat for the entire read!!

    Jude,

    Thankfully, all my family were saved any disaster. It passed over my daughter's house without touching down, and came down, went up and over my son's work and down again only blocks away. I am so grateful for their safety and everyone else who lost property but no lives bythe grace of God.

    We are going back to the University hospital tomorrow. He's still in a great deal of pain but so far it has not spread anymore (that we know of). Another miracle in my opinion. Thank you for asking... Smiles, Carol

Carol, What a dramatic story - tornadoes are such a force, sparing one house, ripping the one next door apart, killing some, while others survive. How close a call did that family have?
One can't help be thankful they lived and to mourn all those who have died in other tornadoes, ones less lucky. You tell this story well with just the right amount of tension. Brooke

    Brooke,

    This was a freak tornado, totally out of season..only last year we had another one in January..strangest thing..It followed almost the identical path. We are so fortunate that no one lost their lives. I've seen some devastating ones and can't help wondering how some people get warnings and still lose their lives and others (like this one) have seconds and survive. I guess that's God's scheme of things and just the way life is. I am so grateful that no one in Rockford died that day. Smiles, Carol
