jayne...wow... you have way too much excitement in your life ..at least too much for me. I am so glad that you and your family are ok. My day was status quo. Brandi and I went shopping for our large Easter basket that we are doing for each of the kids. I bought a really sharp Easter outfit for my oldest grand daughter which she looks great in. Also, did some cooking. just same ole same ole... but I would not have liked what you went through very much..glad you and your family are ok...love you Red

Well I sure didn't have the excitement you did!

We were under a tornado watch and trunderstorm warnings yesterday eve. Lots of rain & wind. Yesterday my son went back to school and I went grocery shopping, meet with the accountant for the non-profit I serve on, did some work on my booth at the flea market.

And didn't do any housework! Yes!

Sheesh Jayne,

I wish that I had been with you yesterday... I love a good storm just as much as you do. All we got yesterday were high winds with gusts up to 60 mph. And the winds just carried a lot of dust and smoke from all of the fires that surround us. Had I needed to go to DFW yesterday, I would have been waylaid on the way back, as they closed the one highway that I travel to and from on. Over 12,000 acres burned in Wichita county alone. And most of the other fires were in adjoining counties.

We are in a severe drought right now, below normal by over 4.5 inches of rain. We have a high percentage for rain over the weekend, but I doubt that it will really amount to anything. The weathermen are even saying we probably won't get more than an inch. There goes having a nice lawn this year. They are already restricting outdoor water useage. No watering lawns and gardens between 7 am to 7pm, no washing of vehicles or homes with hoses or pressure washers.. and if we continue the way we are now, there won't be any watering allowed for lawns and gardens (gardens can be done if you want to haul water by hand from the house).

Glad that everyone is okay and that you sustained no damage. When I heard about the tornado in Arkansas, I thought of you immediately and wondered if you were okay. I knew it had to be close to where you are.

I just saw on the news about Mena that 3 people died in that tornado and saw all the devistation of the homes that were damaged. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the people who were affected by that tornado. I know first hand on how that can be and how that can change ones life in a heartbeat.

I also want people to know that when they mention that you can donate money such as grocery stores and stuff like that ( hannaford) , big grocery chains, and other type of buisness that you do not always see that money go to the tornado victims. I am right now wondering where a year ago all the money they collected when we had a tornado went to. I have never seen a dime of it to help us in any way. My father in law brought this up the other day that we should contact the news co. and find out where all this tornado donations went to if it did not go to the people that were hit.

Sparky if you want money to get to them,get a families name and send it to them..Sal army and red cross will take donations but with it they buy water and food and give out clothing vouchers with it...pay hotel rooms ect..... donating clothing or other things are a waste of time unless it goes in pks such as a toothbrush a comb toothpaste,deo and soap in a bag...these are awsome and you go thru alot of them..problem is at the site you do not have enough people to sort and set up donations so its always easier if you just give to sal army or red cross...they already have these things set up and ready to go within hrs.....warehouses of water,bleach,soap, diapers and wipes to go...I could set up to feed a thousand people a hot meal in under 2 hours thru the sal army.....and remember any money that goes anywhere but to the sal army over 60% of it will go in administration costs...the IC for the Sal army did me wrong but any extra dollars I get will always go to the sal army I know how they spend their money and its not on fancy cars and hi dollar offices its on the people they mean to serve
