Tornado Update

Some of you have asked about the tornado that hit last night in Missouri. I'm about an hour away from Joplin, so no damage here, but we are feeling the effects of the storm. Many people have come from Joplin for shelter and have been transferred to local hospitals. The whole area is still in shock over everything and everyone is looking for ways to help.

  2. It has still left me speechless to see clips from the news, and knowing how close it was to us. Even in my small town there are people from Joplin staying here. It's crazy to know more storms are coming towards us. I hope they pass quickly and no harm. Keep safe, Sarah!
