Re: Bad Weather on Wed. June 4
Good news that you and your family came through unhurt except for
your son's scare! I hope your property damage was not too severe. The
feeling of helplessness in the face of the forces of nature is a
scary time. Here, we had a tornado warning but nothing much happened--
no damage at all but I remember looking around at my library thinking
what books I would take to the basement. Thank goodness you had a
basement rather than a slab had the worst happened.

I hope all our friends in the Sharpsburg/Keedysville, Boonsboro areas
are OK and that the damage on the battlefield isn't too bad. I just
read that Washington County declared a disaster due to the
storm/tornado in the southern part.
