Yesterday I went with my children to downtown Tulsa. While enjoying ourselves at several Art festivals. Pi grabbed my camera and snapped these pictures. Little did we know that These dramatic clouds would grow to be fearsome storms
and leave damage
that looks like this.
One third of Joplin Mo, is gone. Over 100 are dead. Recovery has been made difficult by the ongoing bad weather. Our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected. Right now the best way to help is with donations.
