It's been a pretty crazy year. Beyond everything falling apart in my own life, mother nature seems to have thrown in the towel as well. In the blistering fast days of this year Oklahoma City has experienced earthquakes, record hail, ice storms, and now tornados. Two F4's on Sunday, and of course the massive F5 on Monday that destroyed half of Moore and displaced over 15,000 people. Latest I checked, death toll was up at 91 and climbing. It feels like half my city is gone. The other half is limping in a surreal state of disbelief. Haven't met a person yet who hasn't been affected. The highway is pretty much on lockdown into Moore thanks to the flood of refugees and volunteers. As soon as I figure out my car situation (water pump and belt blew out), I'm hitting the road to Moore myself to help dig through debris. Moore is where I taught all semester at Community Christian School. I'm so relieved to be here in for my high schoolers and go help them out. A lot of them have lost their homes but God has been good enough to spare their lives, and my own. All I can say is, what a year.
