I have a trailer setting empty and I would like to give it to someone in the tornado effected area. It's a 1985, 14' x 50', it will need four wheels and tires and some one to move it.

Even though the 'formal' classes have been canceled due to the disaster, I believe the students have learned some "LIFE" lessons, preparing them for the future ... they will never be the same. We need to pray for the teachers, students, parents, administration, and share in their sorrow.

I moved to Ok 15 yrs ago. I remember the May 1999 storm that hit just outside OKC, now this storm was also almost as big. I feel safe here in Bartlesville, we always seem to excape the most damaging storms and tornado's. But I know it can hit anywhere, any time, I pray for these people every day. Not just the ones who lost everything, but for the family members and friends who lost their loved ones. I know God will be with them and bless them all as they try and pick up the pieces of their lives. Bless you all.

Back in '81, two tornadoes swept through bartlesville, narrowly taking our house. Completely demolished the west side of town. I don't remember if anyone was killed (I was 6 at that time)but I remember my grandma saying thank goodness it hit on a monday because it took out Murphy's Steak house (yum!!!). Had it been any other day of the week it would have killed eveeryone in that place.

Ten years later in '91, one huge one swept through copan. Took out that little gas station at the four way.(the one there now is the rebuilt one, you can see the old foundation to the left of the new building) a friend of mine worked there and he said he was outside when he heard it coming, ran inside and got everyone out and into a safe place. Saved like 3 or 4 people that night.

Just after the super walmart opened, a tornado (small one) hit by that bank and took out the brand new roof and A/C units off the new walmart. Lasted all but 5 minutes this tornado did, and nearly destroyed the walmart. Tore up the bank's drive through. The fire station had parts of it on their roof.

It's been at least 12 years since the last one, Bartlesville is about due....

Larry, you are an angel of mercy! May the Lord richly bless you, and also the family that will be able to receive the trailer you are offering.

Well I do thank you for that recap of our town, I was not here when the storms you mentioned hit. But I do not think Bartlesville is due anything but good things, we pray for good things for our town, please do not speak such things over us, I do not wish for a tornado to hit anywhere. Thanks for the update and have a great weekend!

I left that town for a reason, and praying for it aint going to help.

I ain't wishing any bad things on anyone, just saying the pattern of the past points to a possibility.

Well I belive in the power of prayer, the fact is God tells us " to worry about nothing and pray about everything".
I am not a fool either, i know that a tornado can strike anywhere, and we do take the warnings seriously , but that does not stop me from praying for good things for my town. We have to live by faith and not by sight. And trust that God has a plan for us all. Bless you!
