Life After A Tornado?..Yes, there really is!!!

Well, it’s been a long time since my last post…needless to say, I was shell-shocked, in shock, confused, dazed and utterly and hopelessly lost for a while..we all were.

However, God is good and we clung to our Faith like a life raft (it was literally all we had left!)

Things worked out for the better..and now 4 months after the tornado, we have a new home…well, used/new to us!…which is larger than our old one, a new garage (really new)..that’s larger than what we had, we have more property (kept what our house was on and bought the house and lot next door). 

Tornadoes are funny things…one house is destroyed, the next only damaged,..but fixable..that’s the situation we found ourselves in…our house was NOT repairable…but the one next door was.  The owners had decided to tear it down anyway though..as they had a different one they lived in…(long story there)…so we asked them to sell it to us instead..which they did..and that began the long journey to recovery.

Here are some pictures we took along the way…we are not finished..but at least we have a home!  🙂

A view from the back yard--we bought the house on the right...that's what we are remodeling now...ours is gone..the pool sits there now..saved the deck though!

This was my side of the garage...
