I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their calls, emails and messages that comforted us after the town of Childress was hit by a tornado Sunday night. We were actually at the park when it hit, but we quickly scrambled to our neighbor’s basement for safety. Electricity was out for about 14 hours on our side of town. There were a few homes lost, plus lots of wind and hail damage.
We mainly had debris and bunch of trees down at our house.
We couldn’t get our vehicles out of the drive till we moved all the broken limbs.
I got my buddy Rickey to give me a ride so I could get the limbs at the top.
I hope I don’t have to use another chainsaw for a long time.
Our neighbor’s pickup. We’re not sure where the metal came from.
This home was a total loss. We attend church with this sweet older couple. They were in their living room when the roof came off and the hail started beating on them. Everything they had was either gone or ruined. I felt so sorry for them.

This boat just showed up. No one knew who it belonged to or where it came from.
A really nice home where we worked that had all the paint beat off and windows broke out by hail and high winds.
