Tornadoes

Three tornadoes touched down in Virginia today, one in Suffolk. This tornado destroyed something like 13 houses, 1 strip mall, and damaged one of the hospitals that I transport to on a regular basis.

I'm at the station tonight, hoping to do some back-fill for Suffolk so as to relieve them. Please keep the 200-something injured people and their families in your thoughts and prayers, and the emergency workers who will be tirelessly keeping our counties safe.

I'll probably be writing all night if stuff really starts to happen.

Stay safe out there,
Sam

Knowing that your Spirit is ministering to that community, of care-givers and care-seekers alike, gives me an immediate sense of rightness with the world. You make a palpable difference through the "You" presented here ... how much greater your impact surely is there.

I love You!
