Last night, two tornadoes crossed Hwy 69 right where Cattleman’s Steak and Provisions was. A wonderful supper club had to yield to the raging winds, and the damage was bad. Abilene Machine, a business across the street, is a heap of metal. The house that sat near Cattleman’s is gone. Please say a [prayer for Deb and Dewayne Abel, and all those that depended on cattleman’s for income (us included).
We are safe. Our house is about 1 mile south of Cattleman’s, and strong winds rolled by, but the tornadoes cut a close path to County road C13. Why 69 is still closed this morning, – we are hopeful it will open this afternoon. Once it does, I will post some pictures to this blog. It;s a sad day in our household. many friends affected by this.
