Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
That tornado yesterday was all over the national news – it was a big deal. It started at an intersection of two major highways and then shot northeastward. There’s a lot of damage. Some houses were flattened. Aww.
Dave took everyone he could spare and went around seeing if anyone needed help cutting up trees or with light construction work. Some things were just too big and he told the homeowners to let insurance pay for it, but things like flattened fences or things like that he helped set as right as he could. That was nice of him. Sabby told us we’re going to be volunteering as well, as soon as we know where to volunteer and what’s needed. I guess everyone needs to pitch in, right?
But today we learned about tornadoes. They’re actually really interesting. It’s amazing what forms out of just air, water, and heat. And they’re pretty powerful, too!!! Next time I see a thunderstorm I’m going to try to see some of the stuff I learned about!
This Friday is Beth’s birthday. I love Beth. I really do. Even though she was mean to me for a year, she got over it, and now she’s such a good little sister, even if she gets jealous sometimes and acts like a… well, a jerk, if we’re going to be honest about it. But she knows it too, it’s not like I’m talking behind her back. She’s got a mean and a jealous streak, and she’s really, really terrible about it. But she’s not a bad person. Just knows what she wants and never apologizes for it. But I have to get her a present. I don’t know what to get her!!! She’s not easy to shop for. But I do have an idea. Maybe it’s time I make use of my shiny new Amazon account.
I’m going to be reworking this diary soon. My tech friend slapped it together to help me get something out – and I’m sooo glad he did! But I think it’s time to take it to the next level, now that I know how to do some of the tech stuff I didn’t before. So look for amazing wonderfulness!!! Or something.
Allison’s mother isn’t feeling well. Awww. I hope she feels better!
Love you all!!! ❤
And watch out for tornadoes!!!
