    Oh My! I'm so glad you and your family are alright! You can replace 'things', but not people! God will make a way, He is good.
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    I feel your pain! We had a major hail storm here a couple weeks back. My van has $1800 damage, our truck $2200 and we have a third car we didn't put a claim in for because its old. Still we have to come up with the $250 deductible for each vehicle. I'd much rather spend $500 at my local quilt shop!

    Thank goodness the people are OK. As hard as it is to pay for the repairs we're all thankful you are all unharmed.

    Thank you! We are all very thankful. Honestly I had to laugh at it especially after the week we have had. Tomorrow is suppose to be our last day for storms for a couple of days. Fingers, eyes, legs and toes crossed!! :-)

    You can have full coverage but it does not always cover what is considered an "Act of God" Floods storms and such... Don't you have to take out extra for that? Carrie, I am so very very sorry this has happened to you... Praise the Lord your all safe. I wonder IF IF IF any shingles are in the car and if the Apt. has coverage???? worth a try.

    I do not miss living in the south... I don't listen to the radio or really watch TV, so I had no way of knowing these storms have been so bad. A gal here or there lets me know about her area. (((hugs)))

    Just saw some pics on the news and on the web of the damage to your town. So glad you are o.k.
    I also hear more storms are headed your way (and our way too).

    Stay dry and safe. Will be praying for you and all those affected.

    Oh, Carrie, I'm so sorry. That gives new meaning to the phrase 'When it rains, it pours.' I came home from an out of town app't today in heavy, heavy rains with tornado warnings, but no harm done. My oldest daughter called me several times, but I don't answer the phone while I'm driving, especially under those conditions. Glad you and your family are okay.

    OMGosh Carrie!! I wondered about you. I got on here to PM you earlier because I wasn't able to reach my DS there at Murray University and only knew the school was closed. I finally reached him and they are safe in the dorms using generators for electricity. I am SO sorry your van was so damaged. I don't think he has even checked his car but I don't care at this point as long as he's safe.

    Aww, Carrie, I feel for you, really I do. We had similar winds a couple of days ago and I lost a bunch of shingles off of my roof which is less than a year old (third time really). I could hear them slapping the side of my fifth wheel camper but there wasn't much I could do about it. I have a couple not so nice dents in the gel coat but realize it could have been sooo much worse. It makes me mad that I have to have the roof fixed AGAIN though!

    Thank goodness it's only auto damage. But the fabric? Oh no, don't sell it. Make things from it to sell, you'll get more for it. Quickly, make tote bags, key chains, some of those graduation presents which were listed here earlier this week. Call it a "storm sale". Revenue and occupational/mental therapy. Set up a booth in front of the complex, like a lemonade stand. If you sell it here, list it as storm sale items, to get our attention. All the best to you.

    Here in Kentucky we can't seem to see the end of serious thunderstorms and tornado warnings. I will be glad to see this part of spring Sprung!

    I feel for you!! I love my van, can't get along without it. See if you have glass coverage, sometimes you do even if you don't have comprehensive.

    Is it insured??? If so, there is no glass deductible in KY! I was so excited to find that out when my husband broke the back window out of my truck when loading something.

    Carrie - soo sorry to hear about your van - we are like you - cant afford coverage so we carry liability only on our vehicles. We have 3 old cars Newest is 94! The full coverage wouldnt have helped us too much since there isnt even a blue book value on our cars lol

    Hang in there and I am so happy you are all safe!!!

    My SIL lives in Maryland Heights in MO Its very close to the airport (Lambert) which was hit by tornado and shut down for awhile. I called her and was so glad that it missed her and her daughter (who lives next door!!) It hit houses 6 blockds away and they had a gas leak in their neighborhood. Her SIL came home from his nite shift to find the eighborhood closed to all traffic and the officers told him to walk home - He literally ran home to thankfully find his wife and little girl safe and sound!!!

    My SIL's school was closed and the faculty got together and went to the surrounding homes to help clear debris. She said it was sooo bad. All the homes were destroyed down to the subflooring! She said it made her think about her life and thankful that it missed them. These people lost everything they owned!!! What would you do and where would you go!!!

    Thoughts to ponder!!!
