Dear Journal~

Bill here. Trying to sleep, but too keyed up about the storms we had come through last night.

Didn't sleep much at all; trying to calm down a terrified wife, crying or screaming kids, panicked pets. Incredibly, with all the noise, our two youngest children, Ian and Isaiah, slept through the entire thing; they didn't even wake up until four am to be fed--and by then the "all-clear" had been given!!

Parts of Nashville got hit pretty hard, and northeast of here, in Hartsville, a huge gas explosion occurred, unaccounted number of people hurt or dead, according to the breaking news reports. Everything still not clear; things are being put together. We heard this big "BOOOM!" and we headed to our shelter, fearing that another storm might have been headed this way. We're still there.

No school for the kids: they are too upset about the storms last night. No damage here--excepting for our nerves and a few shingles off our roof, branches in our yard. Will have to pick those up later until we all calm down.

Louie is going to go to work; she is getting a late start. Just woke up about an hour ago, she needs her coffee. LOL My wife canNOT function without her Community coffee! LOL

I know the hospital will be rocking with tornado victims; Louie is probably due for a crazy day at the office. Meanwhile, I have to work at ten today, ten to six, while the grandparents babysit/watch over the kids.

Funsville. NOT!

As many as 44 people have perished in the storms that raked across the southland; more may be added to the total as details about the gas explosion are ironed out, delivered to the masses. I will have to say some special prayers for those affected by the storms--and now the gas explosion.

Well, Louie is headed out the door to go to work; don't expect her home until later than usual. I will have to say goodbye to her, then deal with the kids until I go to work at ten. I will write in here again soon; take care and God bless!

I just thank GOD He got us through in one piece and that it wasn't worse than what it already was.

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tennessee, Bill. :(
