Today will be a pretty wordless post. I have updates from the fair, but it all seems a bit off for me. Our farm was hit by a tornado last night. (***I’m going to have to re-word as “possible” tornado. I guess they are assessing this today and believe they may have been “just” straight-line winds in excess of 100 mph. How about this…the weather blew stuff all over the yard and caused a bunch of damage. It doesn’t really matter what you want to call it.)
We were blessed that no one was injured. My husband rode the storm out in the shop. (Crazy man.) The boys and I were in town at my Mom and Dad’s, just finished up from the fair and were waiting for supper to finish on the grill when the sirens went off and we spent an hour in the basement.
I knew it was bad when Mark called and said, “Well, we have damage.” You see, he’s notorious for shrugging things off and downplaying what’s going on. For him to admit there were problems meant that things weren’t good. But material things can be replaced, and it makes you count your blessings even more.
So glad to hear that everyone is safe. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
Praying for speedy return to “normal”. We’ll come over to help in any way. Talk to you again soon. Love you all Wagner family!
Oh wow!! So glad you are all safe!! You are right all those things can be replaced! Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and community!!
So glad eveyone is ok. I know all to well the feeling s you going through. A tronado hit our farm in April. We lost 2 buildings, Swing set trampoline 2 augers a tractor and lots of shingles on the house. Like you said buildings bins adn other things can be replaced lives cant. Thoughts and prayers with you and your family.
Will keep you in prayer. Hope all goes well with the clean up and glad to hear all of you are safe.
Hang in there Val. I hope your crops survive better than you think. We were hit by a tornado on 6/27/11 so I know what you are feeling. Each day will be easier and the outlook will be brighter. Your in our thoughts and prayers. I know your neighbors will rally behind you guys to help with the clean up effort.

I was glad to hear you were all fine over the weekend, seeing the photos, I’m REALLY GLAD Mark’s okay. The shop could have been altogether different if the storm stayed a bit longer on your farm.
Prayers! You are right, things are easily replaced but none the less heart breaking – like your garden and all your hardwork!
Greetings from Nebraska. We so sorry about your damage, but thankful no one was hurt. You garden picture says it all “All that hard work.” Blessings to you and your family.

Oh wow! Scary, scary! Where do you live? We had bad storms in central Iowa last night but thankfully, the damage was all south of us.
We live near Monango, ND, which is in the southeastern part of the state, just across the state line from South Dakota. The damage was pretty significant, all the way around! Thanks everyone for the thoughts and prayers!
