the national weather service confirmed that it was in fact an EF1 tornado that hit us early Thursday morning. and get this, it touched down less than a mile from us. i still can't believe it. i knew it couldn't just be straight line winds. finally got done cleaning up our yard of all the debris today and even planted some flowers in the yard. it is officially spring here, in all it's destruction and glory.
i'm off to take a long, hot bath. i'm full of dirt and itchy from being outside all day. oh, before i go, I have to wish my sister a happy, happy birthday. i love you lots and couldn't have asked for a better sister.
