Glad you and your family and pets are okay after the severe tornadoes. The tornado which hit Pierce City, Mo., went over my area in extreme northeastern Oklahoma Sunday, dropping so much marble-sized hail it looked like it snowed in my yard! The turtles were all out in their pen (which has no cover, but some covered hiding areas), so I immediately checked to see if they were ok. They were out searching for worms, crawling around the hailstones! All were OK. Then two days later, another bad storm hit, this time with golfball size hail! The turtles once again didn't get hurt, but my van has pockmarks in the hood....
:How did you fare in the tornado? I hope everyone is okay. It hit one block away in two different directions from my house. We just got our power back on at 6:30 today. We're very lucky.
:I walked around with a friend and we offered help to anyone cleaning their yards. Many people accepted. It's been a long, hot, tiring day, but I'm just happy I have a house :)
:Again, I hope everyone is okay.
:P.S. - :) There were 3 cats, 1 dog, my dad, my brother, and then me holding my leopard tortoise, Earnie, all piled into the hall closet :) I've got ten baby turtles in the house and when I ran up to my room I had to make a choice of which one turtle to grab! (I had a flashlight in the other hand) :) Earnie is my favorite, but shhhh.. don't tell the others that ;)
