Those pics are amazing.

Where were they at when the twister hit? I assumed in the cellar but then I seen the pic with the truck in the barn and thought with what you said above that pic that they may have been in the truck?

I love the pic of them with arms raised with the American flag.

I with HM if they need anything let us know.

BF, They were in that truck in the barn. They had been working out on their farm when it started to rain and hail, so they drove the truck into the barn. Not wanting to get beaten by hail they just stayed in the barn and watched it come down. They had no idea that there was a tornado coming, but all of a sudden it was there. By the time they got from the tail gate to the pickup doors they could barely get the doors shut. That truck was the only thing on the farm that wasn't completely destroyed. Their airstream was pushed over into the side, and the barn collapsed on top of it, but not a single glass broke on the truck. It is dented and scratched of course, but we cut the barn away from it and just drove it out. I guess we had to jerk the other pickup off the back too. There was a half ton out in the yard that was picked up and thrown up on the flat bed.

Thats awesome that they were protected through that twister. Through all the pics you had only the cellar or that truck would have been a safe spot. Looks like God wanted your parents down here a little while longer! Again Im glad your parents made it through ok.
