Never fear, I'm still alive.

But I have to tell you that I'm still beat. Will have more in a little bit.

Glad you survived the trips, the tornadoes and the agent provocateurs Mike. Now after a well deserved rest, please fill US in on all the pertinent details (be they gory or glorious) or even if some are sobering and a bit worrisome.

I was in the one that virtually flattened Lubbock in '70. That was the storm that motivated Prof. Fujita to develop the F scale for reporting tornado severity. Still one of the 5 worst ever recorded. Then in 88 I bugged from the coast to get away from a hurricane that was coming ashore but was less than a mile from where one of the F-1 twisters the hurricane spun off touched down.

Once you've seen wind in excess 120mph,you get kinda blaze about such things. Besides, worrying about a twister getting you is a waste of time. Unless you have a shelter (in which case why the FRACK are you not in it!?) there is nothing you can do to keep the twister from getting you. Either it is or it isn't and you don't get to decide. It's a serenity matter. One of my goals for this year is to cultivate serenity. Unfortunately, like patience, serenity is something you develop by living through situations that call for it. I've had my share of those in the last 18 months or so.

Glad you came through the storms unscathed. Having experienced both (how about riding out a major pacific typhoon in a sick bed on the 6th floor of a building constructed overseas in a third-world country?) I find tornadoes to be much scarier than hurricanes.

Hang in. Keep telling yourself that the Creator never gives us more than we can bear. Course sometimes you wish He didn't have QUITE so much confidence in you.
