Weather – 2, Gillette – 0

07 Jun

Tornado touchdownThis was the scene in Gillette on Wednesday.  I guess it was a good thing that I wasn’t there. 

Rain has been falling in Gillette rather hard.  In early May, we had 4.5 inches of rain and then another 2 inches Wednesday.  Gillette’s yearly rainfall is almost 14 inches, nearly double what it should be this time of year.  While Gillette is in much need of precipitation, I think they have enough to last them a while.

Places are flooded out, including the senior pastor’s parsonage.  Fortunately, they were able to drain most of the water and called out a professional company to dry up the excess and apply anti-mold chemicals in the affected rooms.

    We had our own rain problems several weeks ago with a Nor’easter pounded out region. New Milford, NJ – the hometown – was flooded out. Many people lost everything.

    Your people are in our prayers.
