no, nothing as bad as joplin. not in kansas, thank god. they were saying on the news that wichita hospitals have a couple of victim's from joplin and at least one is unidentified and in a coma. they are working on finding family. hope it turns out well for the family.
we had a covered dish just now at school. people were telling stories about their close calls. one of the teacher's husband's decided his field needed work more than he needed shelter. he tried to continue on his tractor. the wind blew the windows out of the cab and then sucked him out. luckily his pant leg caught on something in the window so he didn't take flight. it did suck his cell phone out of his pocket so he had to walk, all scratched and bloody, to the nearest farm house, which was damaged, too. he called his wife and then helped with their clean up until his wife came to pick him up. his head is stapled, like frankenstein, but he's still farming--s6
