I hope you all are doing great. Late July has returned to the Sooner State and it's hot here! Only going to be hotter, back to normal, and we'll be pushing 100 before the week's end!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

that is so exciting!

How are things going with the clean up after that tornado? I know some schools got destroyed, are they putting those kids in other schools for now or do they have temporary location for them?

No one knew what it was or where it was coming from---it sounded like beneath the floor. We got an email this morning explaining that the contractors were sandblasting on the floors below. A prospective tenant saw the exposed 1901 brick walls on our floor, and decided they wanted the same look---so they were sandblasting through to expose the brick! Well, our head guy persuaded them to wait until after 6 p.m. from now on to do their sandblasting! Wonder what today will bring?
LOL, no wonder you could not hear! I am surprised you do not have to do a bunch of dusting too!

Thanks Star!

Clean up continues, and there are a ton of vacant lots all around town. One of the schools that was destroyed is meeting in my in-laws church for the coming school year. My wife interviewed there yesterday and was offered the job this morning, but she had already accepted the position at the kids' school. It would have been a challenge teaching in that environment as it just isn't set up for a school. But, the church is awesome and is bending over backwards to get it ready to house the school this year. The new building will be ready for the 2014-2015 year next August.

The other school that was destroyed is meeting in a building owned by the school district that was vacant and used for other things. That new school will also be open in 2014-2015.

A junior high was hit, but it is being repaired and on track to open in a couple of weeks (they are working around the clock).

Thanks for asking. The community is coming back bigger and stronger. Hope you all are doing great!
