THE COOLIDGE STORM OF August 8, 2015

100_3522   100_3517

Coming from Valley Farms, we stopped and watched this powerful storm pass through. Packing up to 80 mph winds, and a deluge of rain. It moved from South-west to North-east.

100_3533

Lasting about and hour, doing some serious damage to some houses in the North section of Coolidge. After about an hour, the Sun came out- leaving sparkling clean air. Praise the Lord for His Wonders.

  3. The storm looks, and sounds like it was pretty bad, I will be praying for the victims of the storm (if any).
    Continue your teaching us God's word.

  4. Great lesson PB, Thank You for your serious teaching on the apostate church. I have shared some of this with those I teach Bible Studies with - it always amazes me that tradition over rides what Thus Saith The Lord!
    keep up the great work.
