The tornado outbreak in North Carolina this weekend was truly heartbreaking. Hope all our N.C. members are safe. Prayers for all who lost family or homes in this terrible tragedy.

Dr. Reed and his family were respected members of our "barn family" at Bobo Stables in the late '60s and '70s as owners of Mike's Mighty Delight. My condolences go out to Pam and the entire Reed family.

Praying also for our friend Mirally Meadows, who lives north of Birmingham, Ala.
I fear she may be very near or directly in the path of the terrible tornado that just passed through.

I just came from Tullahoma to S'ville - and I was SCARED - probably won't be unscared till after midnight. That's when the weather person said that I could breathe a sigh of relief.
Hope everyone is okay. OHM was expecting a mare to foal - pray that goes well.

We were wakened by rain pelting our bedroom window and the wind howling. We had only a few small limbs down in our yard (found a good size tulip poplar limb in our back yard and our tulip poplar tree is in the FRONT yard). All around us there were huge trees torn up by the roots or ripped off about roof level. A couple of houses had trees fall on them. Our street was blocked in several places by trees that had fallen across it. The last time I was outside, the police were still at the top of the hill. Behind us looked like a war zone. A lot of town was without power. Hooters and Toots had extensive roof damage. Other businesses were damaged as well. We felt extremely blessed to have escaped yet again with no noticeable damage when all around us was such a mess. I think our street has turned into tornado alley. Prayers for those here with damage and for those in Alabama and Georgia who are dealing with MUCH bigger issues. Thought about you Bubbadog, then remembered you are in Shelbyville now, which had its own share of storms today too. Hope OHM's mare and colt are alright. MM, hope you are safe too. Hope the storms are gone!!

It's been a scary couple of days in middle Tennessee, hope all our friends are safe and sound....of all the times for me to have PC problems getting on trivia, sometimes I can-sometimes I can't. Was that way before the storms came and it seems to continue...grrrrrrh I'm sure it's the operator.

Some welcome news in the wake of all this sadness- A quote from a friend in Birmingham who knows Molly also, "Mirally Meadows is fine... I think without power for now, but no damage. Her children are all accounted for and safe as well. Thank God!"

AWW, thanks to all of you for your concern. Power has been restored and we are all safe. Terrifying storms that passed north and south of us. Too close for comfort....so many lives forever changed by this tragic tornado outbreak here in Alabama and surrounding states. Counting blessings....

MM, so glad to hear you are okay. OHM, tell us about your mare and colt and how you fared during the storm. Hope everyone is okay.

On another note, Lynn Womack, took a NASTY flight out of a cart she was driving yesterday when the horse spooked and ran off with her. She FLEW sky high and came down on a post of the rail. It seemed to take forever for the paramedics to arrive. She was alert and vowing to ride in the show in Shelbyville last night. However, the last thing that I heard was that she had a lascerated liver and they kept her overnight in the hospital. I am trying to hear further this morning. I am sure she would love having your prayers.

Well wishes to Lynn! I am not a fan of carts/buggies anyway....and if it can happen to her, it could happen to anyone. So dangerous, hope she is recovering well. Keep us updated.

Talked to Tommy Hall yesterday. He said she had a pretty rough afternoon and that they kept her from food and drink and kept a surgeon on standby during the night Saturday night. She handled it all well, so they let her eat and then dismissed her about 10:30 Sunday morning with orders to rest. I don't know Lynn really well, but she strikes me as a person who doesn't spend a lot of time at rest!!! It certainly could have been a LOT worse with the spill (high flying ejection) that she took. I am sure she could still use our prayers.
