    The roof was blown off

    My oldest daughter, Ellie, just called and asked if I'd come get her because she's scared. I said OK. Ellie NEVER calls us to come get her so I knew immediately she was either really sick or something was really wrong.

    She just called back and told me nevermind. The buses are bringing them home. Okaaaay. WHY? Because the ROOF WAS BLOWN OFF! They don't *think* it was an actual tornado. They think it was a downdraft maybe. It happened while the kids were going to classes. She sounded so scared!

    Thankfully no one was injured, but they are sending all the students home. Mike has gone to pick up our other two (in different schools) because the weather is so bad here.

    Oh my! Glad all are okay. That would have been really scary.

    Once the shock is over, she'll be able to look back and say that she got the day off, who cares about the roof!

    No one was hurt thankfully, but now there are reports of a gas issue there.

    She is so scared. I could tell when I was talking to her she was shaking and her voice was cracking when she was talking to me.

    I'm worried because its been an hour and a half and she isn't home yet and hasn't called. Mike asked when he picked up the other two at their schools and all we could get was that the children were loaded on buses and evacuated. We are trying to get through to the BoE to find out something but all the lines are busy.

    How scary to get a call like that from your daughter, I hope you have heard from her now and know what is going on. Calls like that one just make my heart drop knowing that your daughter is afraid and your not there to help her.

    I hope everything is OK with the school and the gas leak has been found and fixed.

    Yes, Brandon, the school building. The first reports were that they didn't think it was a tornado, but we've talked to a couple people who were there and said it HAD to be. One woman was dropping her son off early and said just all of a sudden plywood went flying by her.

    There is/was a nasty fire in the cafeteria. A couple of the cafeteria staff were taken by abulance and treated for smoke inhalation and a couple minor burns.

    Ellie made it home shortly after my last post. She is shaken but otherwise OK.

    I bet there will be lots of scared kids around for awhile, how scary that must of been. I dont know about tornados much but we have down drafts at times here in the mountains and they will take the big pine trees and break them like match sticks, this are huge trees. One hit a town not to far from here and almost all the houses had trees slammed into them, it looked like a war zone.
