We did get in the basement when the reports were that Sharpsville was in line of a tornado. We just live 5 miles from there. There were many tornado warnings and no one killed or seriously hurt. Thank the Lord.
Today we will have more chances of storms, hopefully nothing like yesterday.
I think our deck plans may be on hold for a bit. As the mayor of Kokomo asked people to stay away for a while. They only need volunteers to help with clean up. We always shop the Menards and Lowe's stores there in Kokomo for any building material. It's so close (20 miles), less distance on the road with a trailer full of wood.
Thanks to all who were concerned about us here. Especially my daughters, I am blessed and I truly appreciate all of you. I am saying my prayers of thanks today. Plus sending out prayers for those that lost their homes in yesterday's tornados . XO

I am so sorry for all the folks that's suffered thru this crazy summer weather...floods, fires tornadoes, earthquakes...prayers for allReplyDelete
Bj, Me too. It's heart breaking...so much flooding, storms and forest fires...the quake in Italy and now storms brewing in the ocean near the U.S. We have to keep praying for each other. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Good Morning Susie, I thought about you when they talked about the storms on the news. i am so glad everything is o.k. It is scary. They went around us, but we are getting rain. I have missed my friends and I will try to check in more often. Take care and be safe. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.ReplyDelete
Shirley, I am so thankful to be okay here after the storms went thru. I pray for all those that were effected by the tornadoes. Glad you are doing better there. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Thank goodness you were all okay, Susie. My sister lives in Pensacola, so we are always watching the gulf side...:)JPReplyDelete
JP, Oh yes, I am worried of those tropical storms. I feel blessed to have my family and friends safe. I pray for Kokomo and those in need. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I'm very glad the tornado bypassed you and I hope the folks who were affected manage to get cleaned up and back to normal soon. -JennReplyDelete
Jenn, Kokomo had so many helpers the mayor ask others to stay away....I guess too many people is as bad as not enough...in each others' way. We were very lucky here. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Thought of you when I heard of the tornado in your neck of the woods....glad to hear you were safe. I saw a "Facebook Live" video of the starbucks collapsing...must have been pretty scary watching it from the other store.ReplyDelete
Louise, That had to be scary for the people inside the starbucks...they were safe in the restrooms. I am thankful no damage around our area or my children's homes. I always pray for the towns in danger. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
When I hear of things like this, I always think of my friends who live in those areas. I am so glad you are safe.ReplyDelete
Oh thank you Peggy, I do the same thing...always praying for my friends near and far. Seems we all need to keep praying...so much is happening all over the world. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Tornadoes are a terrifying thing. I'm so glad you are safe and so thankful for early warning systems. Even my phone has an alert on it for weather-related warnings. I had no idea, and I had not put it there. Hopefully your tornado-creating conditions will soon be over. Have a good weekend, Susie. xoReplyDelete
Judy, We do have the tornado warnings on our phones and we have a weather radio also. Even my grandson who has a degree in meteorology followed the storms from Utah on radar maps. Today is pretty so far...the rains may be here this evening...hoping not. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I'm so glad to hear ya'll are safe. i had you on my mind last night when I was watching it on the weather. I'm sure glad no one was hurt or killed. Prayers that the storms won't come today . Hugs and Blessings, xoReplyDelete
Susie, I think of my blog p[als when I hear of things happening near their homes too. LOL. I guess we all do that. I thank you for thinking of me. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Yes, the weather is the one highly unpredictable. However, we need to manage.ReplyDelete
Hi Jeno, Thanks for stopping by. Yes, the weather is unpredictable... those early warnings are really saving lives. There were only about 15 minor injuries during the Kokomo tornado. What a blessing. Hope all is well where you live, bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I guess I haven't looked at the news all afternoon. I'm so sorry to read about this, and I'm so glad you weren't hit. The grass looks pretty. Ours has stayed green all summer thanks to the good rains. Tornadoes are scary.ReplyDelete
Nonnie, our grass was starting to get crunchy..not good. Now the rains are making it green and it's certainly growing. Looks ready to mow again. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
So happy to read that you and your family are safe from the storms. The photos were scary enough, I can't imagine living through that. Your lawn is beautiful, so lush and green. I have rock :) Have a blessed Friday! Cindy xoReplyDelete
Cindy, I remember you live in Arizona...yes, I guess it's rocky lawns. I have seen some beautiful lawns like that though. Hope you are doing well. I think of you and wish you blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I saw that Starbucks going down. So glad you are okay. Rough weather lately. Hugs.ReplyDelete
Debby, sometimes our weather gets scary. We just always have to take precautions...like hiding in the basement. LOL. Hope all is well at your house. It's been a hot summer...not much fun outside activities here. No walks with my sisters this year. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Bless you and your family. I wan't sure where exactly you were located but I was on edge anyway. So glad you are safe.ReplyDelete
Oh thank you my dear friend. Blondie, whenever I hear the weather 's rough in Chicago I think of you and our friend Kris..We are like a real family in ways...because we worry for one another. Bless your heart, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh no, tornado warnings in your area, Susie! I'm so glad that you are safe. I can't believe the Starbucks was hit (my favorite coffee shop). But so glad that the people there were safe. Susie, I have to ask you, "does Ted mow ALL of the front lawn?" It's such a vast area and it looks gorgeous! I so wish I had lots of space like this and a big front porch. You are so lucky, girlfriend. heheheReplyDelete
Stay safe from the tornados, Susie, and take care.
Sheri, It's been kind of crazy on and off weather here lately. The rian truly helped with our lawn...it was getting brown and crunchy. Ted does mow with a mower called a zero radius turn..but once in a while he leaves a spin mark on the lawn from trying to mow too fast. I call him down on those. LOL. I do love that he trims the flowerbeds and edges well. Tornadoes can be destructive ...so we were blessed that it was north of here...but sad for those in it's path.Thankful no one was seriously hurt or killed. Blessings, xoxo, love you, SusieDelete
We are ok but the second tornado went right through our woods. Trees are down around our house and pond. Huge trees. We will be forever cleaning up. We got power restored last night. And our house is fine. I am going to try to blog tomorrow. Exhausted.
Cindy, I was very worried for you when I heard of the tornadoes in the northern part of Kokomo. Of course they were all scary. Do you have enough help cutting and clearing trees? I am thankful you, your family and home are safe . Hope the bees are too. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
