Thank you cody for caring and for your loving heart, my friend! I must admit, us folks here in NW Louisiana were somewhat spooked and jumpy relevant
to the weather situation. We had tornado watches here as well as high winds, rain, lightning and some hail reports...a few downed trees but we were
lucky compared to those poor folks in Moore, Oklahoma!
My heart goes out to them all...those poor kids at the schools and to any/all that suffered... were injured and/or killed. How horrible. Even photos
of pets hurt and/or scared. When things like this happen, I wish I was just one big ole angel that could wrap my wings around all and keep everyone
safe and well but that isn't the way of things.
I couldn't help crying, those poor kids and even adults, teachers, pets, first responders, Bless
Some folks at other threads have been saying there should be more basements and such. From what I have discerned relevant to the geological structure
in many of the "tornado alley" areas, the ground, rock, water tables and such make it difficult to build such. One man interviewed said that such a
structure (cost estimate) would cost several times more than the actual structure he lived in. I hate to hear folks question the wisdom of the victims
in these kinds of scenarios.
All over the country/world, there are areas in danger zones...either from tornadoes, or tsunamis or earthquakes and volcanoes...there really is no
"safe" place when Mother Nature has a catastrophic scenario to put forth. I just hope and pray for the best for all everywhere. The world can be a
dangerous place and tragedy can happen anywhere. To be safe, folks would have to move from Wyoming, Cali, Oklahoma and more...just not possible.
Cody, you are a good friend to all of us here and your concern for us all means a lot. I am so pleased to be able to call you "friend" as many here
are also. Hugs, blessings and love to you and best wishes to you and your loving, caring heart. NW Louisiana folks are doin ok stormwise...so far, so
good mostly. ^j^
