How You Can Help Oklahoma Today

(Credit: Tim Lauzon/Texas Stars)
Oklahomans, surely including many Barons' fans, have had a rather unlucky and downright horrible week with the number of devastating tornadoes that have hit the area. I'm sure many of you, like me, are wondering how you can help those affected by the storms.

Neal Livingston, who covers the Oklahoma City Barons at Tend the Farm, has written a post about how you can help. Please follow that link and do what you can.

I wanted to specifically call out Neal's description of the tornadoes in the post.
Living in Oklahoma, tornadoes are a part of the deal. Although not listed in your renters agreement, hotel paperwork, or home closing documents, enduring tornado season is the life of an Oklahoman.

In May of 1999, a week before I graduated from high school, I survived one of the most horrific natural disasters my eyes had ever seen. I still think of those moments, and my brain can’t fully compute what my eyes saw.

Almost 15 years later, my eyes saw a similar scene, and again I struggle to accurately process what I’ve seen first hand, watched on television, and digested through phone calls, emails, and social media. It’s 1999 all over again, and it’s horrifying. 
So follow the link and do what you can. Thanks.
