But I don’t like feeling like I’m watching an Action Adventure Movie when I’ve got the Weather Channel tuned in.
The live reporting last evening of the OK tornados that were touching down and churning their way across the landscape – well - it was surreal…
During an Action Adventure Movie you know that nobody really gets hurt… but it tears at my heart to see those tornados spewing debris knowing that people are having their lives ripped apart… right at that moment.
I’ve lived in Texas, Kansas, and Nebraska and have relatives living in TX, KS and OK. I’ve known that sick feeling when you see the air turn that eerie green… I don’t miss it a bit.
Do you know Judy Laquidara of the blog Patchwork Times? She’s an accomplished quilter, quilt book author and all around great gal who currently lives outside the Joplin, MO area. I’ve known Judy ‘virtually’ for as long as I’ve been a quilter – having met her via Alex Andersons Quilting Message Board. She has a wonderful proposal for all who would like to reach out and help the folks of Joplin. Please go read her blog post and if you would like to help out please do.
Now all I need to do if find my check book – I can’t remember the last time I ‘wrote’ a check out… LOL
