INDIANA'S WIND, THUNDER, LIGHTNING, HAIL, RAIN, AND TORNADO.

Yesterday, we were extremely fortunate unlike many others about an hour south of us here in Indiana.  We were pummeled with all but the last, the tornado.  Hail covered the ground resembling a layer of snow on the ground.  

The most ironic thing is that all the tornado warning sirens went of as the storm was abating.  Someone really missed the timing on that!  We have learned from past experience, that there is a greenish/grey hue outside just before a really serious storm.  Yesterday, the hue was not present.

So what did John and I do?  We continued hanging light fixtures with one eye on the weather outside.  The light fixtures are up and we are safe.

Some were not as fortunate.  Schools, farms, homes and businesses were pummeled with this spring storm.  

In addition to the material damage, the report is that thirteen lives were lost and a baby girl was found in a field after the massive, tornado spawning storms blew through.  The child and her family's home was about ten miles south of where the baby was found.  Their town was in the path of the storm.  Their county and ten other counties in Indiana have been declared a disaster area.


Our heart and our prayers go out to all involved in yesterday's tragedy here in Indiana and throughout the widespread area.
