Default Ralph and Vicki Update

There are two post going so I thought I would start a new one so everyone is on the same page.

A terrible storm blew through on Monday that made a mess across the entire northern section of the state. It hit my town about 30 minutes before it hit the ACM studio and it intensified tremendously after passing through here.

There is a lot of storm damage in our county but everyone is doing fine. Ralph and Vicki are still without power and they are hoping to have it back on by the weekend.

I stopped over today but left quickly because there was tooooo much manual labor going on The gang has most of the large trees and limbs cleaned up and spirits are high.

There are no official reports of a tornado in the area but some of the damage would make you believe one hit. A friend's dad went outside after the storm and found a 2 x 4 that had done almost a complete pass-through on a large tractor tire.

There are also several old barns on the ground but at least no one was hurt.

All is well....considering. I could have been a lot worse!!!!!

For those of you that attended the Posse meeting......I understand that the church camp is a mess and the cabin some of you stayed in was severely damaged by a large oak tree.

Good news on the 0 casualty report. Thanks Scott. Glad that the damage was contained to things that can be replaced.

Our offer still stands for anything we can do to help. Yeah we're in Colorado, but I've driven further overnight for less of a reason before. Cheri's in too.
