Storms

 

   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.

Nothing worse than getting called in when you have had limited sleep.  I've been through that before and it is no fun.  At least it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

I've heard nothing about the scouts. I'm sorry your weather is so bad. It's not fun having to work when all you'd rather do is curl up in bed. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

I heard about the scouts.  The boys were heros, as the news announcers are saying.  But, you and the other nurses,  doctors, ambulance drivers, and other emergency personnel all are heros in my eyes.  That was a tragedy!  My prayers are with the boys and their families.

I have been reading about that boy scout tragedy.  My BF's 7 year old grandson just was at one last weekend.  They held it anyway even though heavy storms were called for.  Now, they see what could have happened.  I hope the rain stops for you and dries up.  Chris
