People, the fair and tornado's OH MY!!!!

Around 6:30 this evening at the Sherburne county fair where I have a booth, the tornado sirens went off. As we prepared for evacuation, the fair committee said this was a mistake and it was for a different area of the county. About a half hour later over the loud speaker we hear: please evacuate the fair grounds, in an orderly fashion.

This is the 2nd time this has happened in my craft fair history. The last time I was in a tent, this time in a pole barn. I had 5 min to get my tent down (my son the fireman, sister, future daughter in law, and a couple of the firemen (son's friends) helped tear down the tent and throw everything all went in the car, this time I cleared off my tables, walked to the car and tried to find the government center or fire department (thank you to the Sherburne Cty Sheriff's department for the wonderful directions). Because it was booster day they had bingo in the community center, some crafts and food, this time I was either in a hall way or room with chairs. Nothing spectacular happened when I left the community center for Booster days, but...when we (there were quite a few of us) left the government center the sight was a double rainbow.

My son was with us during the last storm, this one I just stopped at the fire station (they had to report and stay as long as the danger was there) and told him I just wanted to let you know I am ok. I also said the thing we need to say more to each other as life can be taken in an instant...I Love YOU. I was reminded even though we were in danger God was in control, everything just seemed to fall in place, and He protected all of us.

G0d really works in strange ways one of my fellow vendors said do you suppose the rainbow means something and I just smiled and said YES - it means everything is going to be ok.

So much for my excitement for the day.

Have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!
