Some Very Sad News
Unfortunately this past Sunday afternoon our neighborhood was hit by an F3 tornado estimated to be ½ a mile wide. The majority of the homes here were destroyed. Our home suffered some extensive damage but not to the degree of that of our poor neighbors. As a result our garden has for the most part been destroyed. We spent two days cleaning and I was feeling a little better about it, but I am sad to report that the heavy equipment used to move out the trees today wiped out another large portion of it as well as turning the lawn into complete mush. At this point I’m feeling that we don’t have the money or the strength to continue with our garden dreams. Only time will tell… I’ll be posting some pictures very soon, and we will continue to salvage what we can. Meanwhile we are blessed to be safe and healthy.
