Our thoughts and prayers go out to our Oklahoma FROGs as tornadoes pass through their state this afternoon. Please let us know that you are all safe as soon as you can.

Richard and Candice

The storms haven't reached us here in eastern OK, yet. They are headed this way and should be here in an hour or two.

They have already produced several tornandos in central OK. My sister along with my niece and her family live SW of OKC. I just found out both of them have extensive tornado damage to their houses, but everyone is okay.

Stay safe everyone.

P.S. Just heard on the tv, 7 deaths in central OK.

We are all OK here in Wagoner, OK. Small one went thru about 1/2 mile south of us. We had 10 people in the underground shelter Tues night at 9:30. Local sirens were blaring and TV weather pinpointed the path. 10 minutes in the shelter and TV stated it was now on the eastern side of Wagoner. Whew. Only the third time in 11 years we had the shelter door closed and locked.

Good to hear you are all OK. Our hearts go out to those who were not to lucky.

We would have no problem if we had folks show up from Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas,or even Texas. Then between us we could come up with a different name for our group.

Thanks all. BOB
I kind of like this;
Missouri
Oklahoma
Kansas
Arkansas
Texas

Glad you guys are safe and were spared any damage. Same for us as well

I spent yesterday at my sister's just north of Blanchard. It's still questionable whether her house can be saved or not. The insurance adjuster came out and said they had classified the tornado as an EF4. I can believe it after seeing everything first hand. Part of living room wall is gone after a cedar tree was thrown through it. A couple of doors do not shut or open correctly, whereas they did before. Leaves, limbs, dirt, glass and all kinds of debris alll through her house. Some furniture and items broken and some not? About every window was out or broken. Her roof has holes in it. Gutter on all sides is damaged. Every tree that was left had massive damage to them. All her fencing and barn is gone.
The path of the tornado went between my sister and my niece's houses. My niece lives about 200 yards to the west and 100 yards to north of my sister. I'm not sure yet, but I believe my niece will have to rebuild. Besides other damgae, the roof was picked up, then set back down and two walls of the garage were caved in on their cars.
In a pasture to the S.W. (before the tornado you couldn't see this pasture because of the trees between) you could easily see the path as it sucked up the grass and dirt. Several house north of my sister were completely gone.
NO ONE WAS INJURED!!! Everyone heeded the warnings and took shelter or left the area.

Volunteers from my sister's church came out and cleaned about 75% of her yard, approx 1Ĺ acres, and boarded up all her windows, They also covered the holes in her roof and she already has a brand new garage door. It took them 2 long days. They provided all the materials as well. There were volunteers and neighbors everywhere helping each other providing a helping hand, food, clothing blankets and just about anything else you can imagine. Gotta love the people in Oklahoma!

Sorry for getting off topic and the long post.
Everyone stay safe and looking forward to seeing you guys at the rally in July!
