Just a update for all of you that have e-mailed me asking if we made it through the F-4 Wadena Mn. tornado. Yes, but we lost much of our crop, fences, a roof, the siding on our house, and more precious... trees. (lost so many when we were hit in 2005 too!) That is nothing compared to the 240+ homes and dozens of farms GONE. Our town lost the High school, community center, swimming pool, and various businesses. But so far we have had no deaths in our community. God willing we are getting stronger each day!! ( Many video's on U Tube and Google if you are curious.) My best to all of you wonderful sisters.

Sorry for all your loss, but at least no one was injured. That must have been very scary. Never been in a tornado and hope I do not get in one. Hope all is well with you and your family. Thinking of you.

I am so sorry for your tornado and damage. Thankful that you are OK and your family is OK. None the less it is such a blow. I am from Minnesota and know how destructive they can be. You take care of yourself; too many stresses aren't good for us. Thank God you are still here!

Peggy, thank goodness that you and your family are safe, but it obvious the destruction was horrific. It is hard to imagine how much damage a tornado can do but having lived in the midwest my entire life I have seen what can happen but have never been personally touched by such a disaster.

Thinking about you and your entire community as you put the pieces back together...
