Last night my son came running into our room at about 4:30 AM.
The tornado warning sirens were going off.
No, I didn't hear it, thank God he could.
I jumped up out of bed as he ran to yell for his sister asleep in an upstairs bedroom.
Then we all went to the basement, waiting for the storm to pass.
Luckily, nothing hit Herrin, just wind and rain.
A fellow southern Illinois town was not so lucky.
Harrisburg, IL. which is approx. 30 minutes away from my home was devastated by the storm.

I’m asking all my followers of faith to please send prayers out for everyone affected by this horrible storm.
