For those of you who may have heard about our severe storms this morning, we are fine. Both of us went to our respective jobs this morning. I got to work and the electricity went out. John had some power outage as well in Springfield. Niether of us experienced any tornadic activity, although the sirens went off here and I spent about 20 minutes in the bathroom with the Director, another employee, and the custodian. The winds were up to 80 mph. Once the sirens were off, we went about our business at the library, without power. At least all the books are shelved! We've got power back on, all the computers are working, and most of the staff is breathing normally again. It's just part of living in the Ozarks that you will have tornadoes and winds and rain from May thru November.
Noon: Same day - I'm told we have a tree with the top snapped off just west of the garage....John is on his way home from work since they have no electricity...checking on family members...so far, so good!
