Yesterday I was suppose to be off for a meeting today. So I only slept 4 hours after working all night.. I wanted to go to Lemars and look at a van. Did I mention we are looking for a new mini van?
Anyway when we were up there the clouds started to look very threatening. We rushed home. We could see funnel clouds all over all the way home. Very threatening weather. I wish I had my camera. Don't leave home without it should be my motto. I could have gotten some very cool shots.
At home work called and told me I needed to work at 11 as someone had called in. Yikes. I had only slept about 4 hours out of 30. Off to bed. A hour later I got called that our external disaster plan was put into effect due to the scout camp getting hit plus the weather was hammering us.
We got 2 blocks from the hospital and the police had the roads blocked off. They opened them up for me though, :-)
We didn't end up getting any further severe weather that night, but we were very busy. The patients we got from the scout camp went to our ICU's and they canceled the disaster plan but since I still had to work at 11 I stuck around for my shift sipping on a energy drink.
I suppose everyone has heard about the tragedy at the Scout camp. My hearts go out to the families. We also have several towns and our farm fields under water. It just keeps raining and raining. In fact it looks like it is going to rain right now and some area's are having severe storms again today.
With that in mind I slept as long as possible. If I get called in again I am rested. Hope this all settles down soon. Stay safe all.
