News from Here...


This is a picture of the front page of the Chattanooga newspaper today. The storms and tornadoes that came through our community along with those all across the south have been devastating. 

Thankfully my family and our home were sparred, however a tornado did touch down about 50 feet from where my daughter and I were laying in bed. We heard the trees snap and fall, but didn't realize the extent of the damage until we saw for ourselves in the daylight hours. Huge oak and poplar trees ripped right out of the ground, root ball and all, down a straight path away from our home. We are counting our blessings this day. 


We've been without power since right before the storms hit on Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. We do have a generator up and running  and have our freezer and refrigerator plugged into it, but this is only a temporary fix. I do have the laptop plugged in to charge it, but with the price of gas at almost $4 a gallon we cannot sustain this for long. 

Hopefully the power will be restored as soon as possible. Until then I won't be online as much as usual, and I just wanted to let you all know. :)
