It is a great day to be alive and aren’t you glad we both are?
I have picked up a cold somewhere but other than that I am happy to be back in what I call home again. The insurance adjuster is checking all buildings on Saturday so perhaps I will get my window replaced soon. I have one more picture to show you how the Good Lord looked out for me on Sunday. And then no more pictures as they are depressing.
There is a driveway that separates me from my friend Barb’s home. You can see what is imbedded in her roof. She has definitely been displaced. This happened right over her kitchen area.
I am sitting here drinking a cup of Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea with a big shot of real honey in it trying to nip this germ I have picked up. It is raining and is supposed to grow colder this morning and change all over to snow.
I want to thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers for my neighbors and for me during this trying time. A special thanks to my family for taking me in and giving me a port in the storm even though they were without electricity too. Spending Monday night in a nice hotel was quite an experience.
Big semis have been loading debris from the damaged houses for the last 2 days. For White Angel what happened here in Pekin IL was a tornado. There were 21 tornadoes that hit various parts of Illinois last Sunday. This particular one was hit and miss all over the north part of Pekin which is where I live. It picked up velocity as it moved through several cities until it reached Washington IL which is about 20 miles from here. There it caused extreme widespread devastation.
Have a good weekend. Stay safe and be happy!!
