Do not have the time or emotions to write much but here are some thought.
Don and I had been in 'town' had intended to drive down in the area that was hit the hardest. I said hey lets take this road - we were having fun being lost. Saved us from being there at the wrong time.
We were going to go out to dinner (our daughter Jaeda is here) We got home about 10 min. before it hit. We did not have time to leave again and be away from home stuck.
Never felt anything like it. The whole house moved. Everything on the floors, broken. We got out side, even thought I had been changing my clothes and had nothing on...grabbed a dress as I ran out - screaming Yes I am a screamer.
The whole city seemed to be in a cry. Dust everywhere.
Then the ofter shocks.
Everyone out of their homes, many singing - praying, many hurt.
Don and I walked to the clinic, but only got to the boys home where every wall was down. all the children were safe.
girls home about the same -everyone safe.
brought everyone to our home - we still had walls, safer.
fed the children crackers and peanut butter, water and layed sheets out on the concrete for beds.
more after shocks.
Trent had a rat stalking him, so he thought, rats are no big deal now.
Of course no electricity.
No running water.
Don is off to see what rebuilding will be like, materials are going to go fast.
Pray for Haiti.
