We Are Safe!

Thank you all for your prayers! It's been a scary night, but we are all ok. Tornadoes were north and south of us and we actually had a tornado warning here. However, it was just really high winds around 50 to 60 miles per hour. I really thought our trees were going to snap! The town right above us got alot of damage, so I'm sure I will hear about it from friends tomorrow. These storms are moving across Arkansas and I just heard of a small town not to far from here that was destroyed. So sad... I hope you are all safe!! I know these storms were very dangerous in Oklahoma too and some people have lost their lives...I am praying for the familes who have lost so much in these storms and the recent Alabama and Missouri storms.
