Tornado

Needless, to say, this past week has been horrific for the people living in the South. Thankfully our family is safe and sound and have only had to deal with no electricity for a few days and fallen trees everywhere.Unfortunately some of our friends have had to deal with alot of property damage. It was a really scary experience and we are praying for those how have been hit by the tornado. The church and community have been working hard at providing relief to the victims here and it has been really neat to see how the community has become united in helping the cause. This week, we had Sacrament meeting outside because the electricity was still not on so that was a little interesting. But in general, life is going back to normal especially since Michael has finals during the next couple of weeks.

Here is a video I made of some of the damage. It is so strange to drive around town and to see piles and piles of wood everywhere from the fallen trees. Thank you everyone for your throughts and prayers.Keep them heading this way since there are supposedly more coming our way later this spring.
