I was lounging on the couch in my pyjamas, where, if I’m watching a TV channel that has commercials and my iPhone is at hand, I’ll often fire up Facebook for something to do during the advertising. My niece posted this photograph, taken from my sister Karen’s entryway at Aurora Beach near Margo.
I immediately texted Karen and when she didn’t reply, phoned. No answer. What now? There are only two houses with full-time residents at the beach, and if a tornado had gone through it’s certainly possible that people could be injured and unable to call for help.
I was just about to get dressed and drive to Margo when I received news that all was well, that a tornado had touched down a few miles away but Karen and her family were safe.
*Thanks to my niece Michelle for permission to post her photo. She points out the three pelicans floating through the photo, all la-di-da, whatever …
