The other night, June 1st around 4:30 my daughter was turning the channel on TV when the news interrupted and said tornado warnings and that one had touched down. Well this is huge news in New England, well for me anyways...from that moment on we were all glued to the TV. The tornadoes caused a lot of horrible and tragic damage out in Western Ma and Central Ma where we live. It was crazy. I had all the kids, the pets in the basement three times while the super cells were going over head. You have to understand, that just a few weeks ago I was saying we never get tornadoes and how lucky we are, well, guess what, we aren't that lucky. My friends who live in Southbridge had serious damage, while another women, Stella, who is 89 didn't know there was a tornado warning and her whole house was damaged except for the living room where she was sitting. She said her living room got very bright and the house started to shake and then she went outside to only find out that she just lived through a tornado! How blessed is she? My good friend in Southbridge takes care of her, that is how I know this. My other friends still do not have power and they think maybe it will be back on come Sunday. Everyplace you go people are talking about it and apparently a funnel cloud touched down about 3 miles from my house because everyone is telling me about it.
The lightning strikes were abundant, again, I never saw anything like this.
Overall, we are safe and everything for us is back to normal. It was a stressful week and I am very glad it Friday. I'll be visiting all my bloggy friends this weekend! Time to catch up!
