This was the sky this morning at 9:15 when the tornado warning came in! I have to admit that my heart skipped a few beats when, from out of nowhere, some announcement said to take shelter--NOW! The tornado passed by Baton Rouge, but we heard that one touched down in Walker, about 10 miles east of us. We did, however, have a serious downpour and heavy wind but nothing critical. The mission was put on lockdown until further notice. Driving in the torrential rain is bad, but the flooded streets are worse. Missionary + flooded street + heavy foot on accelerator = trouble. The worst thing that happened here was a tree branch that fell on the roof of the mission van, but there was no damage.
|And this is what greeted us as we drove into our apartment complex.|
|Pretty sad, huh?|
