Has anybody heard from our central IL Freeper, Graybeard58? He wrote this last Monday.
Graybeard58's post about a tree falling
after seeing the devastation this AM, I thought the same...
Tornadoes went through his area this past weekend.
I know that power is out for good numbers of people in the area of Pekin, East Peoria, Washington, and Gifford. But it would be good if central IL Freepers get a chance to check in, let us know.
Well, one good thing about living in ****cago is that at least the tornadoes always miss us. We get the man-made disasters instead.
Well, we could ask him: You okay, Graybeard?
How ya doin?I got missed by a few miles. I know he lives in the area, but don’t know exactly where.
I though the same thing. According to the Peoria Journal Star there has only been 1 recorded death in Washington, Il. It was unlikely to be Graybeard58 since he is a senior citizen and the person killed was 51 years old. However, according to the article 100 people were hurt and 20 people requiring admission. Prayers for everyone. http://www.pjstar.com/article/20131118/NEWS/131119207
I was out of state since Saturday morning, due to the passing of my step father. I just got home this afternoon and discovered that the power had been off for more than a day, didn’t lose contents of the freezers. No wind damage, other than a few small limbs in the yard and driveway.
Washington, Illinois is less than 10 miles from me and they were hit really hard but only one person lost their life.
Thanks for asking.
Great to hear you’re okay, but so sorry about the circumstances. We were pretty concerned around here!
Glad to hear you’re OK.
