We Are in the Basement....

I canceled plans to go to Hershey this 
morning due to bad storms, flooding 
and tornado warnings.  

We just had our first serious storm of the 
morning here in our neighborhood.
Both Moms, Jonathan, Chelsea and I
are hanging out in the basement watching
the news.  We were ready to get into 
the inner bathroom and closet under the
stairs if we needed to.

Mikey and Warren are both
at their jobs.
I am sure they are taking care too.

I think we'll hang out a bit longer since
there seem to be more storms on the 
way.  

Praying for all of those whose lives
have changed forever in the last 
several days.  We are reminded that
while the human race has made a lot of 
gains and consider ourselves
fairly "self-sufficient"
we are not in control 
of everything.

That is for sure.

It is good to know 
the ONE who IS.

Be careful, friends.

Updated:  We got the "All clear".
So...on to get some things done and 
then to a banquet this evening to hear
Josh McDowell.
I am excited about that.

Praying for those who cannot
just go back to normal today.
So many......

I remember those days, hanging out in the basement of my parents house in PA, good memories even if it wasn't the best of situations.

Hope you guys are making memories while you can!

Becky, how scary. You're right. We are not in charge. Glad that you're all in the basement and being cautious. Praying...such a tornadic weather system playing itself out. Can't wait until it's long gone.

Are you out of the basement yet? What's happening? Are you going to see Josh McDowell? I think he's great.
