I hope you are all safe

It looks like the area around our school was seriously affected by last night’s storms. Those of us in the Willow Brook area escaped damage. As the day wears on we will know more. Thanks be for basements.

I hope you are all safe and dry. All those affected by these storms are in my thoughts and prayers.

It is times like this that the community comes together, and we all demonstrate “the better angels of our nature,” as Abraham Lincoln famously said.

Please let me know how you are if you can in the comments section if you happen to visit this site this weekend (using a pen name– I’ll figure it out since I alone will be able to see your email address). I am so glad that those of you who were at Holy Spirit were not hurt– our Good Friday service was held in our church’s basement all the way in U City.

Help each other.

I love you all. Bless you.

    Well, good news is that I wasn’t a home when the storms and tornadoes hit. I was at my first baseball game–Cards VS Reds (oh, Cards won 4-2) and came home to the wreckage around Maryland Heights and Bridgeton. I don’t have any power at my house though I admit I’m grateful for the fact it was still standing.

    Today I woke up early since I was supposed to have a track meet and my dad let me drive through the wreckage all the way to the school. Basically…my road is nearly deadlocked. Lightning struck trees have fallen in the roads and power lines were askew near homes. I came up to the school to find it powerless.

    Right now I’m just hopping around to relatives with power. I don’t know what I’m gonna do about getting to school–if we have it on Monday. I don’t even know if I’ll have power by then. One can only hope.

    My carport/deck roof was blown off and is half in my front yard and half in my back yard.(My mom has a few dings and stratches) 95% of my roof was ripped off. There is a huge tree in my driveway/front yard.(literally inches from my car.) There is major leakage in my house. One room (an add on) was shifted one inch north and midly broke away from the house. There is a “sky light” in my moms closet. My bathroom ceiling so close to collapse. And a few other things.

    Teachers will be at school tomorrow. I am bringing up some clothing and we will be trying to help as best we can. Thanks God no one was hurt.
