Good Monday Morning all!
We hope you all survived the weekend!
….Well our weekend was full with excitement….but first I wanted to report on my Epidural relief!……I can't tell for sure yet! LOL…but I do think it is starting to help some…..I need a few more days and I will have a better idea then.
….as many of you know we had severe weather right here in the midwest…Tornado's and all. I believe we had over 100 reports right here in KS….but not sure exactly how many actual Tornado's there were, but let me tell you….it all started at 11:30am Sat... to about
3am the next morning. While we dodged them here at the house….Deborah's Aunt got hit and lost their farm to one of them. Thankfully no one was hurt though…and that's the good of the story. She is my favorite relative of Deborah's…and of course she thinks the world of me…as I tease her quite a bit. (no kidding)
Somebody loves me!
My place of employment did not fair so well, and took a direct hit late Saturday evening…and sustained major damage…..so much so,... that all operations have been suspended. We went and took a peek at it that evening as soon as I heard the news on it….what a mess…and it looked like a war zone!
Given that it is the largest employer right here in Wichita KS, with over 7000 employees….the impact is great on families that depend on income from there. So far, they are telling us to remain at home until they can assess the full impact of the damage and decide what it will take to repair,…how long, and when operations can resume. I can tell you that many families are worrried…..and Deborah is wondering just how long I will be pestering her at home.
All in all…we consider ourselves very lucky…as the Tornado was only a cat #3…and at least there is something repairable there….and the site did not get wiped clean as many tornado's do. However there are many families hurting around the city that did not fair so well. Our prayers are with them! Not one death occurred in Kansas through all of this…that was wonderful news…but still many will have a burden for quite a while as they clean up and rebuild.
This next week will be spent catching up on odd and ends here at home, and I will try to enjoy my time off….but with a little apprehension of what is to come in the next few weeks concerning employment, if,.. and when it returns.
Take care, and have a wonderful week! Pray for my wife!…she is going to need it!
