Ed’s sons and his youngest daughter visited this last week. The oldest son Dan, who lives near Palm Springs, always wishes for a thunderstorm while he’s here. Texas is known for its wild and crazy weather. It can be in the 80s at noon and drop to freezing the same night. This extreme change of temperature creates severe thunderstorms with hail and gale-force winds and sometimes tornadoes. This year Dan got more than he bargained for. The day before the guys left for flights home the sky darkened as sinister storm clouds appeared. Then an ominous rumbling began with lightning and strong gusts of wind. A tornado hit a small community south of us, headed right for us and then veered away across the countryside, taking out some outbuildings on its way. No one was killed. Thank you, Lord!
