Near Miss

3 big tornadoes hit the small town of Silsbee, Texas today where I live. The debris shown here is from a house just a quarter of a mile to the north of my home. Only one known fatality so far, but a lot of people lost their homes or are at least without power for a while.

Still this close the Thanksgiving, it certainly made me appreciate all I have to be thankful for. Especially how in light of this where those close to me escaped harm.

While the news of what happened to others is sad, I am glad that you remained okay during all that. Truly, it does give one cause to pause and be thankful.

by the way, have you checked out MY new blog? Just head on over to http://thecomicasylum.blogspot.com

I plan to have Heidi help me figure out how to add links to my place (which your place will definately be among them).

Happy Thanksgiving to you, my friend! :)

Thanks for the well wishes, I appreciate it and am very glad as well to made it okay.

Thanks for the link to your blog! I'd lost all of my links after my HD crashed, and I am still slowly rebuilding everything. I'll be sure to check your blog out once things settle a bit more here.

Happy Turkey day wishes to you and Heidi as well!
