This is a storm that hit close to home for us. Each of us at one time or another have lived in the Chicago suburbs, so the announcement that they were hit so hard means a great deal to us.
Today we called around to everyone we still knew there just to make sure they were safe.
The storms were a frightening experience. They reminded me of living in Tornado Alley, as it was known to us in SW Iowa, when I was a child.
Memories are often vivid and stay with you until you die. This is one of them.
I’m glad our friends are safe.
