Greensburg Pics, as promised

As promised, here are some pictures from the tornado damage done in Greensburg, KS. What stuck me the most is how every tree in it's path was ripped down to it's bare trunk, and no tree stands more than 15 feet tall.

Someone with a sense of humor has posted their land "For Sale".

The Dillons was the only grocery store in the town, and you can see that the entire left side of the store is gone.

This is the INSIDE of a local parts store, you can see the counter, the poles where the outside walls and windows were, as well as the staircase inside the store.

This building managed to keep it's roof in tact, one of the only ones in the whole area to manage that.

These buildings are now the local hospital. They remind me very much of the MASH units we used to see on TV.

I thought this was one of the most interesting pictures I took... the foundation still stands, and a few glass bricks from the front room window remain. This house also managed to keep most of it's green carpet on the stairs.

Braden is doing well... but please keep us in your prayers as they continue to run tests on him to find a diagnosis, and not all of the outcomes would mean good news. We pray that God continues to give us the strength to love and care for our little man every day we are blessed to care for him.

Thanks for visiting,
