  • Dear Friends;
    As the weather continues to wreak havoc on the world, I wanted to take a moment out to send Prayers for all our members and their families who have experienced unusual and severely dangerous weather. This probably could have been placed under "Prayers," but I am hoping that you will use it as a check-in to let us know you are okay. I am still awaiting news of family and friends in Illinois, but I also know of members in here that are in many of the mid-west states which have been hit hardest. So if you can reach out to them, please do so. I spent nearly 10 years in upper North-West Illinois, near the Wisconsin border, I was lucky enough to only experience a "down-draft"... for anyone who doesn't know what that is, it is the outer edge winds of a thunderstorm / Tornado at a minimum of 80 mph...this is ever so minor compared to all of the others who have survived a tornado, and this is why I post this message, send many prayers your way, and hope to read from you soon.
