Today, I am thankful the tornados missed us this time. Last summer, our town was hit hard by a tornado, which also ripped up several trees in our backyard and knocked one onto our house. Many of the businesses and homes affected still aren't 100% back to normal. Despite several funnel clouds and areas of rotation, not one tornado touched down this time in our immediate area. So today I am grateful that we suffered nothing more than a power outage. No big deal.
One county south, Kokomo has been hit pretty hard. Further south, Lebanon had areas wiped out. To the west, Lafayette sustained terrible damage to factories and some schools. And then there are the towns in Illinois that were torn apart.
My thoughts and prayers are with those affected as I thank the Lord we were spared this time.
