I’m sure by now you saw the wicked weather that ripped through my state yesterday. I’m still here in one piece, and so is everyone I know and love.
This tornado in particular touched down about 10 miles from my office. Sirens were blaring and the sky turned that really dark, eerie color that makes me wish I could click my heels and whisk away to my hometown in California. This tornado was on the ground for over an hour and was about half a mile wide. Eight people died. Serious business.
My family in California and Ireland were blowing up my phone all afternoon, thanks CNN for worrying my mom sick.
Anyways, I’m grateful to still be here with everything still in tact. So much so that I’ve registered with United Way to volunteer my weekends in Joplin, MO to aide in the relief effort. I don’t know if they’ll have any use for me, but I’m sure I’ll hear something soon.
See you again soon!
