Upon us all a little rain must fall....

One of my favorite expressions when things go to all hell for myself or someone I know is "when it rains, it pours".

I think it's a fucking torrential downpour for one of my blog buddies at this point.

Miss Britt, of whom BrittCon is all about has had some major rain...Well, actually a tornado, in her hometown of Parkersburg, Iowa. Britt's fine, since she now lives in the lovely state of Florida, but her husband's family, and also possibly Nanna, her mama (who hasn't posted since Saturday and I am freaking out about) lost everything. Miss Britt and her family packed up and headed to Iowa yesterday, and right about now have made it to Iowa to help out with clean-up and helping her in-laws to get supplies, etc.

I will try to keep all posted on how you can help, if you are so inclined. But all I can ask is that you keep the little town of Parkersburg, Iowa in your thoughts and prayers.

All of my ramblings on this site almost seem crass and idiotic after learning about the misfortune and devastations that have happened. I feel myself going into a funk, but am trying my damnedest to stay positive. Not that it really matters, in the big picture, what I have to say, if you really think about it....

Everyone's voice is important.

Britt's mom is fine and her home is fine. She's just been busy helping with the relief effort.

Sorry to hear of your friend's troubles. She is lucky to have you concerned.

It was the hometown, of a blogger.
The second person I was to know;
Works for Avi as her day job
So little LOL I've felt before
It isn't hard to feel me praying
I watched the news that brought me low
