We were cut off from outside help 
for two days

Hey Tom,

It's fun to put all these emergency kits together -- but somehow you never 
think you will never REALLY need them. All that changed on Friday night. The 
Fenton, MI tornado hit the ground less than 100 feet from our house. Praise 
the Lord -- we're all alive. It's as if God put his hand right on our house. 
The house had minor damage and there wasn't a scratch on the small barn. 
Everything else all around was a shambles. We were cut off from outside help 
for two days - there were too many down trees and power lines. We used our 
kits! Thanks for making everything available!
