Powerful Mother Nature

With all of the destruction from the tornadoes in the south yesterday, it just doesn't feel right to me to post about crafting today.  My heart and prayers go out to all in Alabama and Georgia (an beyond) that were affected by these massive storms. They have now confirmed 160 tornadoes touched down between yesterday afternoon and last night - one of which was on the ground for at least 179 miles, possibly even more - it may be the longest running tornado in history.

Last night was scary for us - it was the first time we have ever prepared well in advance - clearing out a closet downstairs, gathering water, flashlights and supplies.  These storms were so unpredictable - we just didn't know what to expect.  Our eyes were glued to the television - it was almost like a dream to hear the sirens going off and watching this terrible system pummel the same towns in GA over and over again.

For those on the east coast - this system isn't done yet.  Please listen to the warnings - they are real, and need to be taken seriously.  Stay safe today.

Till tomorrow.


  1. Jenn I am so glad you all are safe and I am praying for those people and their families today that were affected by all of those storms. I received a text about 10:30 pm that my brother and his family who live in north GA were in the basement. The came out ok but WOW how awful.

  2. Oh my that is scary! Glad you ended up safe! Tornadoes are my worst fear. I have nightmares about them all the time. we lived in WI when I was little and i remember rushing to the basement when the sirens went off. The storms last week only heightened my fear. Glad you are safe.
