As you know, Joplin, MO was hit with an EF5 Tornado at 5:41 PM on May 22, 2011.
I live about 17 miles from Joplin. I have no damage at my house, but the tornado went right over the shelter I was in. My folks and my brother missed it also by 1/2 mile. We all did lose electric and cable for a couple of days. Thankfully, everyone is safe and no damage. My brother and I went into Joplin approx 6:30 PM, we couldn't sit and do nothing like alot of people did. We helped where we could at Wal-Mart and Home Depot. Bill and I also did more volunteer work thru out the week and weekend. So much more needs to be done though. It will be a long road, but Joplin will REBUILD and be bigger than before.
I will get back to blogging hopefully in the next day or so. THANKS to all those who texted, emailed and called. You don't know what that meant to me!! I am fine and so is my family. Saddened, yes, but we will be alright.
Keep sending those thoughts and prayers for those in Joplin, MO
