Life in Tornado Alley


Well, tornado season came early this year. Usually they wait til about May 3. That  was the date of the monster storm which hit Moore, Oklahoma back in 2000. We had another monster three years ago. I didn’t see the funnel, but I did see the huge black wall cloud hosting that storm as my daughter picked up her three kids, tried to call my two youngest boys, who were at school and the phones died. Instead of hiding indoors I was in the middle of the street praying with a neighbor I had never met before.

Unfortunately, several people lost their lives that day, and thousands lost their homes. Six were children in an elementary school which had no  shelter.

Thousands of Oklahomans opened their homes and pitched in to help with the massive clean up. The trail of destruction was a mile wide and twenty miles long.
