We have wind farms here too. When DD was younger (4 I think?) she asked one year at Halloween if she could be a "Wind Meal" - windmill with a bit of toddler twang lol. It was cute but we've since gotten her to call them what they are, wind turbines. Those things are crazy huge. We have a rr track that runs along our property line, I have watched them come by here on train cars and am amazed at how massive those blades are.
Love storms and think storm chasing would be fun but the devastation is so heartbreaking. I feel for everyone affected. We've had them here but on that scale is a rare occurence. My little town was wiped off the map before I was born. My mom has pictures from it that I have a hard time looking at. I wish I was closer to take in horses for folks. I think getting supplies together is a great idea Afton. I may propose to the team that we could do a HF fundraiser...will see what I can come up with!
Thanks for the kind words. DD wants to go to the funeral, I am going to take her but the thought of seeing all of those kids that are grieving is gut wrenching. I am going to go to my aunt's salon tonight and have her measure my hair. If I have the 10" required, I will be going back to very short hair and donating to locks of love. My hair is thick enough to make 4 ponytails to donate. Cross your fingers I make the length.
