Oklahoma residents have experienced more than their share of tragedy this month, and still continue to. This picture was taken from the back door of our house the evening of the Moore, Oklahoma tragedy where, included in the tornado’s path, was a school full of children. The storm tore through there and then traveled up to where we live and beyond. We experienced some really rough weather, but not near the caliber Oklahoma received. It’s a contradiction in terms, but this kind of sunset is ominously pretty.
Storms continue to rage in Oklahoma and parts of surrounding states, giving the hardest hit places no time to recover before the next storm arrives. We are praying that Oklahoma and other states in “Tornado Alley” have a much needed respite from the storms soon, and that no other lives are lost.
