Tornadoes whizzing by!

Last night was fright nite around here. There were tornadoes popping up all over the place in Arkansas. We were right in tornado alley and one struck about 3 miles from our house. I was terrified and DH was standing on the porch looking for them. Today I drove around to look at the damage. There were several barns leveled and the tin scattered all over, hundreds of trees either broken off or pulled up by the roots. 8 homes were damaged and I saw 3 that were completely destroyed. One looked like a mobile home and there was nothing left but a pile of rubble where it had been. There were about a dozen people standing around there talking and I imagine now knowing where to begin clearing away. At this time of Thanksgiving, I give Thanks to God that I and my family was spared and that I remembered to pray for those not so fortunate. As far as I know, there was only one death but that was one too many! It was not here but about 50 miles away.
