Show of hands, who remembers the thunderstorms that ripped through our area this morning?
Whoa! Feel the breeze from those hands flyin' through the air.
Now, those storms first decided to do a little damage down in Baltimore MD before they made their way to PA. And that damage was sending a bolt of lightning down to strike our friends', Vince and Shell's, home last night.
Their second floor was completely torched. And the rest of the house sustained major water damage. Add on the fact that the rain is still coming through the area and they're looking at some serious hard times ahead of them.
Shell lost her dad and step dad only two years ago. Her mom passed away over eight years ago. She had all of her parents' photos, memorabilia, furniture, etc. in the house. And now she has nothing left of her mother, her father, or step-dad.
Of all the things that can be destroyed in a house fire, photos and trinkets from relatives long since passed on are the worst to lose. And I know all about that first hand.
If you check out the flickr thingy I have in my sidebar, you'll see who I'm talking about. They are the ones whose son was just married this past December.
Please send prayers and positive thoughts their way.
