The Loop D' Loop

Neighborhood, Granbury, Texas
Spring was filled with tremendous highs and lows, ebbs and flows, which seem to be part and parcel, of the beauty encompassing everyday life. However, once in a rare, frightening while, you get stuck at the top of the Loop D' Loop, briefly suspended, insecure and scared breathless as you wait for the inevitable conclusion: the ride commences again. The analogy symbolizes last week in our home as we awaited word of my parents safety, following and EF-4 tornado hit to their home and near devastation to their neighborhood.

Warren House May 17th, 2013
After a very long night we heard from my Sister and BIL: Defeating all odds my parents were unharmed and safely hidden away in my Dads' closet.
Six people were killed and 97 out of 110 homes were leveled. My parents' are very industrious and innovative, having less than 10 minutes to take cover before it hit their home. Once they assessed and then were evacuated from their neighborhood, my family went to the most relaxing place they could find: the bar! Their future is uncertain as they dwell in a hotel and await the churning processes of insurance, contractors and clean-up. We (the kids) have begun to prepare for a Warren-Work-Camp to assist in re-building and laugh ourselves to tears' as we enjoy the comedic relief only our clan can muster. We know one thing, my parents will always have us, united in caring for them, in any actionable way required. Gratitude to my sister and her husband who respond with immediacy, care and attention to every last detail. You two are Rock Stars!
