While everything here at the casa is fine, with no damage from the storms, not everyone was so lucky.
Sadly, the number of dead and injured in the North Texas tornado outbreak Saturday night, continues to rise. There were 23 injured that I have read, and 11 killed, most of them in their cars at I-30 and the PBG tollway. Hundreds of houses in Ennis, Garland and Rowlett were damaged or destroyed. Pets have been lost or killed also.
Please keep those affected, and the first responders too, in your thoughts and prayers. If you feel so inspired, donate to the Red Cross, or Salvation Army. Donate blood to your local blood bank--it won't be used here, but I guarantee someone in YOUR area needs blood NOW. Donate to your local animal rescue organization--they help reunite lost pets after storms like this, with their owners.
And whatever your feelings on the company Chik-Fil-A, please understand that here in NTX, they were responding Saturday night along side the Salvation Army, helping by providing free food to the first responders and folks displaced by the storms. I haven't heard of another company doing that yet, let alone RIGHT after the storms moved past.
