Dozens of tornadoes and intense thunderstorms swept across the Midwest on Sunday, unleashing powerful winds that flattened entire neighborhoods, flipping over cars, uprooting trees and leaving at least five people dead.
You’re welcome RJB. Is Elkhart in Illinois or Indiana? It sounds like a town in Illinois to me but I’m not sure.
That said, my own town was completely spared. We got some heavy wind but no storms. We did have quite a bit of rain though. However, it didn’t even thunder.
I had been praying for a few days before the storms hit as soon as I heard about the risk. God definitely answered my prayers for my own home town. I just wish He would have spared those other places too.
I have always found storms interesting. Scary but interesting! I remember standing out in a parking lot with a bunch of guys a few years ago watching a storm come into our town and one guy remarking about the awesome power behind those clouds and if those clouds are so powerful, what must their Creator be like!
Hey, that’s a good thought! I get thoughts like that when it comes to sunsets and such. I kind of imagine it like as though God painted it in the sky for us and how it is a reflection of how awesome God is! I never thought that way concerning tornadoes and severe storms though.
That said, plain severe storms that have no tornadoes I do find exciting to a certain extent. If they get too severe then they do get a little scary. However, when they are forecasting a tornado outbreak, I get very scared. Yesterday was a very high risk day here in Indiana. The National Weather Service even had us under a High Risk of severe weather which is somewhat unusual. I think that is why I was so nervous about it all. If it had been a slight risk, I probably would have been a lot more calm.
