We’re ok…

…but our city is destroyed. Gone. This is so devastating. I can't stop crying and thinking about what everyone is going through. We watched the tornado on TV ripping our town apart. It was HUGE. Had to be an F5. Soon after Josh headed in to work...he couldn't stand it, had to go. It was mass chaos and still is.

IF YOU ARE NOT TRAINED TO BE HELPING GO HOME!!!! You are not doing anything but causing more issues.

Right now the death toll in our city is at 36. Josh really doesn't see how it will end up being less than 100. When he called me last night to tell me that they had just found a five year old dead I just lost it and haven't really contained myself since.

There are kids at shelters that can't find their parents.

There are A LOT of people still missing. People are getting pissy with the cops for trying to do their jobs....

Right now Josh is working 12 hour shifts and all off days are suspended until further notice.

We have ALOT of rental property in a major area that was hit(Alberta for you locals). I am sure we have total destruction over there and I am worried about it but mostly I am REALLY worried about our tenants. I need them to be ok but it doesn't look good.

We tried to get some assessment done this morning so that we can get people into houses but we really couldn’t do anything for all the spectators. VERY annoying. But I did get some pictures.

Well I have more pictures to post but for some reason I can’t. I will post them as soon as I can.]

I’m off to love on my babies!!

Praying for you all and so thankful for Josh and the others out helping. I've been thinking about y'all since the storms came through last night. Sending prayers up and hugs your way!
