I know exactly what you are going through as I lost everything in January in Qld, Australia. We are still renting and hope to begin to rebuild soon.


Hello LeeAnn,
My heart is just breaking reading your posts. My thoughts and prayers are for you and your family, and the other families of your town. I have been through hurricanes and was even in floyd when I lived in SC. I don't know what is worse.. knowing you have to leave your home and you wont have one to come back to, or just having something happen last minute. either way... it is heartbreaking. I am so happy you have such wonderful people there to help out, it makes all the difference in the world having people around you that care. I understand it was your dream home, but as long as you have the dream, it can always be rebuilt :)

Many inky hugs, prayers and love

I can't imagine, God Bless.

Prayers are with you and your family. Interesting ... as I am writing this, I'm listening to a sermon from Charles Stanley about the anchor through the storm. What timing. Thanks for sharing your plight.

My thoughts and prayers are surely with you and your family, my friend. Hang tough, be strong ...

I can't imagine what you are going through. I'm sending good thoughts and many prayers that you will have a safe place to stay in the months and years to come.


Sending you much love and (((HUGS))). Know that many are thinking of you and wishing you are back home soon with as little damage as possible.

LeeAnn, I've been thinking so much about you and your family, I've read your blogs or listened to the news about Minot (even our local news here from Green Bay, WI). Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your famlies and neighbors during this horrific time. I know we can't imagine what you are going thru....Hopefully all the good thoughts and prayers will bring a small comfort to you. You have touched so many lives, our prayers are the least we can do for you. Please take care, Stacy O'Dell

It is heartwrenching to see and imagine what you are going through. Life takes us in such different places than we want to go sometimes. I did appreciate the picture of your roof. That was genius on your sons part. Levity is good. Take one day at a time.


Oh LeeAnn, I am so sorry! I'm glad that you and your loved ones are safe and I hope that your home isn't going to be as flooded as you are thinking. I'll keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. (((HUGS)))


LeeAnn - my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, as well as your community. Hang in there, and know many people are with you in spirit. Hugs.

LeeAnn, I am keeping you in my prayers as well as your community. Looking at the news tonight it doesn't look good. So glad that your family are all safe. Sending lots of hugs and thoughts your way. So glad that with all the tears you can find some laughter.


LeeAnn, My hearts cries for you and your family. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Long distance hugs!

Oh, LeeAnn, I've been watching this on the news, and now to find your blog! OH MY! My heart is so heavy for you all....

Our area was evacuated the 7th of June, due to the Wallow Fire, here in Eastern Arizona....That fire was wild, and it was like chasing marbles for those firefighters! HORRIBLE. Our house is only about 400 yards from the forest border...

I loaded up what I thought was the 'important' STUFF, and it fit in my van! ...amazing, after living here for 22 years, what I could just leave behind. Fortunately, we were spared -- although, it was within 3/4 of a mile from homes in town!

I will keep you, and your area, in my prayers...
Keep the faith, LeeAnn....
