Terrible news from America...

I've been watching videos on the net of the tornadoes in the USA, and am sickened by the sight of so many towns destroyed, and so many people killed. There was one video of a HUGE tornado right over someone's house, and a woman was praying out loud that it would go away....It was like some kind of disaster film. We have had record floods here in Australia, and many properties have been damaged or destroyed. That is bad too, but at least people have time to move to safety. Not in the case of those tornadoes. My heart goes out to all Americans, and I ask those of you in the tornado stricken areas who may be reading my blog, please post a short comment here to tell me if you are okay. My blog friends (Liz in Kansas and Pam in Illinois) are as dear to me as my friends right here in Oz, and I will be thinking of you and crossing my fingers that you are safe.

Gina, we are looking at the news and feeling heartsick, too. Tornadoes in February and March are pretty rare and the conditions are usually forecastable (is that a word?) so people can be on the watch out. These popped out of a normal spring storm! I feel very fortunate that the damage passed south and east of us. Thank you for worrying, but all is well in my little corner!

The sight of all those homes and lives destroyed is heartwrenching. I hope we can get news that our blogging friends are safe.
