Yesterday it poured. We heard thunder and saw lightning. No clue that there was a tornado less than two miles from our house.
Around 4pm we lost power, but it was restored today by 3pm. Last night we headed up toward Lillington, we couldn't go into Fayetteville because they closed Ramsey St. We heard rumblings about a tornado, and an 18-wheeler overturning. We grabbed some dinner, and picked up a styrofoam cooler and two bags of ice in order to transfer the "liquid gold" from our freezer to Kristin and Brian's freezer (thanks guys!) and headed home to get some sleep. Oliver had his diaper changed by flashlight/glow stick.
We ventured out this morning, to shower and get some food, and saw the craziness that had passed through down the road. The Goodyear Tire plant had an entire wall ripped off, the fence was battered, and 100-ft trees were uprooted. Insane!
Those are bleachers from the Pine Forest H.S. baseball field across the road.
This poor house had a For Sale sign in front. Not a whole lot left to sell.
Feeling pretty lucky about now...
