Terror from the Sky

Every year, folks lose their property, their lives in storms. Tornadoes frequently strike in the middle of the night with little warning. In their wake, they leave devastation and grief.

Depending on where you live in our country, you may deal with floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, blizzards, drought, wildfires, or tornadoes. Of all of those, the average citizen has the greatest chance of dealing with a tornado.

Some parts of the country are more susceptible than others, but when it gets down to it, if you have the right ingredients in the atmosphere, a tornado could wipe out your town. Unlike a hurricane that's unlikely to strike inland, a tornado dances across the country, terrifying and destroying. Because they often whirl up during the night, you don't see them coming. Folks are sleeping.

All my blessings and prayers to the latest victims in Texas. The grief and destruction will impact their lives long after the news crews and cameras are gone. And life will never ever be the same.



  1. Scary thoughts are with them too.

  2. Incredible tornado. So massive and destructive. Prayers for them.
