Hi,

I have been feeling so rough the last few days. The weather has been really crazy lately.:( I woke up hurting so bad this morning. I don't have to listen to the radio or tv to tell what the weather is going to be like.

On May 25 around 5 pm Iowa had one of its worst tornado in 32 years. It was a EF5 tornado, one of the strongest one there is. It leveled half of a town, Parkersburg, and killed 7 people.:(
I live like an hours drive from that town.My heart goes out to all the people over there.

Tonight's weather could be as bad as Sunday's was.:( They are forecasting strong damaging winds, hail and maybe a tornado. I hope this weather straightens up soon. With having a tornado this week it puts everybody on edge. It has been thundering and raining all day. So far we have already had 2 inches of rain with more to come.

It has been a pain pill day for me.

Thank you for letting me and my body whine.
Love,
Lyn

((((((Lyn)))))),

You vent away! That weather sounds really scary. I'm a big woos and frightened of thunder and lightning whereas my hubby has a fascination for weather and would love to go storm chasing. :eek:

The reality hits home when towns are destoryed and there is loss of life. I hope you have somewhere safe to go if there a tornado.

Batten down the hatches and hope it passes (along with your pain) very soon.

Lots'a'luv, :hug:

Please keep yourself safe! My parents live in Waterloo, and are keenly aware of how easily it could have been their town that got the tornado.

I hope you feel better once the weather system passes.

Sorry to hear that the weather is causing you trouble.
The constant ups and downs in temps have been real bad on people.
We do not seem to be able to settle in to one type of weather and get adjusted to it.

Our weather here in Ohio has been bad but I always watch Illinois, Mo and Iowa weather because of family in the areas.
It has been real bad this past year and does not seem to want to improve anytime soon.

Stay safe and keep an ear to the weather radio.

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would log in and tell you all we are all safe. It was scarey here last night. Our area was in a tornado warning.:eek: I got my daughter to the closet and had everything ready to get in. Like I had my cell phone, flashlights and shoes on.

Thankfully they canceled that warning. I was shaking and very stressed out.

Just when we were going to go to bed we were in a serve thunderstorm warning. That means we could of had heavy rains, damaging winds (60 mph)and hail.

We ended up getting 4.24 inches of rain total yesterday. Still hurting today.

Thank you for all your support and concern.:grouphug2: You are the best.:)

I thought I would post a link about that tornado, the winds in that was 205 mph:eek:

Take care everyone.

Hi Lyn,

Dear friend, I am so sorry to read, that your suffering in body and spirit, with the loss of life, so near to you.

It would be very difficult, to see all the damage up close and realise, it caused such loss for so many.

Your heart is hurting, and your body is hurting. Climate, change..is hard and this year, has been even harder on many.

I hope you feel better soon, Lyn.

Love,
Sandy
