sfg bed and tornadoes

Post  has55 on 5/15/2015, 12:10 am

Had some challenges at my house last Sunday in Denton, Tx while I was away in San Antonio, Tx honoring my mother on Mother's day. It seems tornadoes and SFG beds don't get alone. Nobody was at home. So I'm grateful and thankful. And my tomatoes plant leaves were strip off. back to the drawing board.

Oh, no! It looks like the tree did "minor" damage to the house, thank goodness. That one box was "harvested" early. So sorry.

Wow. I'm sorry to hear that. When I saw there were tornadoes around Denton I was wondering how the few here made it through.

There was a nasty multi-vortex west of Denton last week, but it was over open fields and stayed there as far as I know. It was pretty wild.

While storm damage sucks, the good news is you and yours are safe.

Oh, I'm so sorry.  That's so heart breaking.  I'm glad you're alright.  I hope you can pick up and salvage some plants, or at least start again.

Sad for your garden.   BIG hug   to you and yours.

Let us now how much you are able to salvage.  And I hope the house was not damaged too much.  Glad you are all safe.

Kay

Has55,
 Good to hear everyone is OK. Sorry to see your garden & home so torn up.
Seems like much of Texas is really having a really nasty storm season this year.

Post  GloriaG on 5/17/2015, 1:53 am

Austin,

I'm so sorry you had so much damage from the tornado.

We had a tree come down in our front yard two weeks ago with the earlier storm, but fortunately it fell away from the house and didn't do any damage.   

Thank goodness you are all safe, and the damage to your home is minor.
And take heart, the SFG will spring back quickly.

Let me know if you need anything,
Gloria
