All I can say is I am very grateful for all I have….this will be a quick post and my heart goes out to all the folks in Joplin Missouri and the unreal devistation that occurred there on Sunday…..
On Friday I glued up the bench top sections:
Saturday – I worked on getting them semi-flat:
On Sunday, I got a text from my sister asking “are you in the basement?” I was actually…..but I ran upstairs to check the weather and immediately realized that some serious bad stuff was bearing down (it was 2:22 in the afternoon…) grabbed the cats and ran downstairs and hid under the unfinished bench.
The twister literally bounced right over the house, sparing any major damage, unlike many of my neighbors, who had trees on their houses. This was the twister that really hammered North Minneapolis and concluded in Fridley where I live, just north of Minneapolis.
The past 2 days were spent cleaning up and helping the neighbors….......We have the electricity back now so are thankful for that…...
I am thinking that a donation to the Red Cross and Salvation Army is in order…......
