On Sunday morning, my husband and I boarded a flight in Minneapolis, MN, for our flight home. The flight left earlier than was planned and it seemed like the flight crew was in somewhat of a hurry. We had no idea at the time, that after we left, parts of the city of Minneapolis would be hit with a devastating tornado. Our flight was a good one, and we stopped in Missouri for a few hours layover. Once again the crew seemed in a big hurry to get everyone loaded and ready for take off. Of course, it never would have entered our minds as we left the runway in the state of Missouri, that it would soon be hit with the worst tornado to hit the United States of America in four decades. It is sobering tonight, especially after watching the evening news. How quickly life's circumstances can change. Life has changed drastically for so many people in the Midwestern US. In our flights, we were just ahead of it all, and we had no idea.
