    I was talking with my son as the storm went through Farmville. He dropped his phone and I could hear all the noise as the tree fell through his house. Scared too death at that moment. Thankfully he only recieved very minor injuries. It could have been really bad, there are so many people affected by this that are alot more serious than his. So thankful to all his friends fron the First Chrirtian Church in Farmville that came yesterday to help.

    My thoughts to everyone that experienced damage to their homes,cars,etc... I live outside Simpson, and I can say that sky looked very ominous! I was so scared, but thankfully, no damage where I live! Peace out!!

    Your post makes no sense except the first sentence. How about your education funding? It is obvious from you post that you have no education whatsoever about God. God does not promise for everything to be perfect. Perhaps you should edcuate yourself before trying to belittle someone else because of their beliefs!

    The earth has been through warming and cooling cycle's for ever and the global warming is a lie to get your money. The ice age was the earth cooling and a lot of animals died out. You can't blame God for ever thing. God Bless all the love one's of the people that were killed by the storm.

    Thanks so much to the electrical guys from Ayden! They worked all night and restored our power about 7:30. God bless those that are willing to work so hard to lend a helping hand to others in a time like this.
