I suppose I left out a few minor details and assumed that everyone knew where my family lives!? Hmm… can you tell I hadn’t had any coffee when I posted that post? My family doesn’t live in Alabama… but rather, Southern Illinois. The farm (which is in Lancaster on the map below) is just a few miles east (West Salem) where the earthquake seems to have been centered. I finally got up with mom and she said that she thought a tornado was coming through the house. At first she heard the dishes rattling then things (like a stained glass window, pictures, and a giant deer head) began to fall from the walls. She said she didn’t know where to go or what to do! I can imagine not. Thankfully, besides being all shook up, no one seems to be injured.
As for the big trip ahead of us… my husband has informed me he has a very long day ahead of him. Looks like we may not be making it down to the retreat center until tomorrow morning! We’ll see.
Also, some of y’all were looking for Jennifer’s bulletin board… I asked her if she’d snap a few pictures and post it on her blog… you can check out her handy work here! Thanks, Jen!
