Riders on the Storm ~ David Archuleta and Me

Posted by betsy on Saturday, June 8, 2013

storm-364e5ec

Last week I was working the late shift. My husband called me at work to let me know that there were bad storms coming (sometimes I am in a bubble at work, not really supposed to even look at my phone). They were already sheltering in the basement as the tornado sirens were blaring near our home. A few minutes later, we heard OUR sirens going off. I work 30 minutes from home. Customers started stopping at the store and asking if they could shelter there. Of course! By then I had checked my phone, and it seemed the warnings were widespread, take cover immediately, tornadoes sighted all over.

A couple of hours later, the customers had left, the warnings were gone, the last of the money was counted, the doors were locked, and I set the alarm and walked outside with my last 2 coworkers.

I checked my phone one last time, and noted that the tornado warning was extended for another hour. The sirens were back on. We had to drive home in this craziness. I popped in my TOSOD Asian Tour Edition, then settled in for the drive home. The rain subsided after awhile, and as I got a couple minutes from home, I turned on my camera and videotaped the drive.

(you never know what the heck you’ll see, maybe a tornado? Idk, lol – maybe I’ve seen too many TV shows.)

It wasn’t until I watched it back that I noticed the music. It’s very short, only a couple of minutes long, but there’s David’s voice amid the darkness and flashes of lightning.

Video credit Betsy

The thing is, the Monday prior, we had a tornado hit our backyard. It sheared the tops of the trees in all our neighbors’ yards but made a direct hit on our huge 300 year old Oak tree, knocking it down onto our garage, yard, pool, and power lines. My husband was the only one home. As he was stepping into the shower he heard a loud noise. Running to the back window upstairs, he looked out and saw it happen.

IMG_2645

This is a picture of what remained of our garage AFTER the tree was removed.

That was also the night of the terrible Oklahoma tornado, so I hardly mentioned it. We were so lucky, how could I even complain. Everybody was safe.

Listening to David while I was driving home was the most soothing thing. And it’s not the first time he’s gotten me through a storm. Snowstorms and other storms life sends. This is no small thing.

Thanks for riding with me, David. In your own way.

p.s I found out the next day that there had been 6 verified tornadoes in the vicinity. Lots of property damage but no serious injuries.

    Betsy, my twister sister!

    Omgosh what a frighting night that must have been for you and hubby. Storms are always harder to experience in the darkness. That system stretched all the way east across the continent to western Massachusetts. I don’t recall ever having witnessed a tornado. We have our own kind of wind here on the coast in the form of hurricanes. I think I can deal with the predictability of hurricanes over the suddenness of a tornado. The effect is about the same but we have to time to evacuate if it is necessary.

    David says it best in the song:

    You can build your life right on air
    What you need will always be there

    What is most important is your family and friends are safe. Buildings can be rebuilt.

    Angelica

    In the words of Paula Abdul ” You are ridiculous!” The art in today’s post is perfection. Who else could make it rain on David like that?

    {{{{Bets}}}} whoah, what a storm! Loved your video, even though I’m sure it was pretty frightening at the time. Glad you’re okay and that you had David music to “get through this.”

    I can totally relate… in a way. On a recent drive to the dentist (which I’m phobic about), my hubby suggested playing TOSOD to calm my jagged nerves. I cranked the volume of course 🙂 just when we coincidently stopped for a red light at a corner where two missionaries were standing, waiting to cross the street. If they recognized their fellow Elder’s song, they didn’t let on. It was surreal to say the least, lol.

    Awww, great post Betsy. sorry about the damage to your backyard and garage. Glad everyone was all right. Your video reminds me of last year when i was driving to a hotel during Hurricane Sandy, and on my CD player, David sang ‘Don’t need to be afraid.’ from True Colors.

    What a close call, Betsy. Tornadoes are so unpredictable! Thank God that’s all the damage you had and thank David for your surreal drive home to give you peace. I live in Tornado alley (KS) and the closest I’ve been to one is 4 miles. It was an F5 heading straight towards our house but veered to the north and went over the river into MO. Done a lot of damage all over, but we felt lucky that we didn’t have any. It is so devastating the damage that happened in OK. Those poor people are left with nothing. Prayers are with them everyday.

    It’s odd that I had just put my same David cd on. 🙂 His voice is so soothing whether it’s a love ballad or a ZG kind of song! Just have to hear him everyday! ♥

    Betsy,
    I’m so sorry to hear about the damage to your house. Thank goodness you and your husband are okay! It must have been so scary driving home with tornado sirens blaring after what had so recently happened. I’m glad David made that drive more bearable.

    He’s helped me numerous time during stressful drives. My mom’s been in and out of the hospital several times in the last year and the 90 minute drive can be tough. But like you, I put David’s CD in and it helps to keep me calm on the drive. I wonder if David has any idea how many times fans have turned to his soothing voice in times of stress?

    Thanks, David, for being the calm in our storm.

    This article, and especially Angelica’s photo of David – with the rain and lightening on his face, while a tornado nears his side – reminds me of this show tune from Carousel.

    You’ll Never Walk Alone
    by R. Rogers/O. Hammerstein II

    “When you walk through a storm
    Hold your head up high
    And don’t be afraid of the dark

    At the end of the storm
    Is a golden sky
    And the sweet silver song of the lark

    Walk on through the wind
    Walk on through the rain
    Though your dreams be tossed and blown

    Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
    And you’ll never walk alone
    You’ll never walk alone”

    Wishing comfort to all those in the storm’s path.

    Betsy,

    I remember that day a few weeks ago when you told me about the tornado and the old oak tree falling on your garage. I was actually terrified for you and was so relieved when you arrived home to find everything and everybody was okay.

    David’s voice has been a comfort to me at stressful times, too. He sang “Save The Day” to me (in my mind) when I had some dental work done a while back. I focused on his voice and barely realized what was going on in my mouth. LOL

    MT asked: ” I wonder if David has any idea how many times fans have turned to his soothing voice in times of stress?”

    If we told him, he’d probably give us one of his sheepish grins along with the words “Oh, really?”. As if it’s no big deal, when in reality it’s a huge deal!

    Angelica,
    Love the David in the rain pic above!

    Like Jan,I too am in Tornado alley,not too far from the OK border here. This has certainly been one HORRIFIC tornado season.
    That must have really scared ‘Mr. Betsy’, when he looked out the window and saw it happen!! Yikes!Just so happy you got safely home in the car. There is nothing more eerie than those sirens, going off when you are driving at night. Good time for David to be singing “Look Around”!!

    Hello all. I’ve been away for a long time. Betsy, I’m so glad you came out ok from the storm.
    Frightful thing to experience! I guess you could say I had been riding a storm of my own-
    the main reason I had stayed away. Life can kick you so hard in the teeth some times. It can send you into a pit of heartbreak and you’re alone there with distress and desperation. Struggling with emotional, moral and even spiritual tumult. Anyway. my faith kept me going. Also I found soothing and comfort in Be Still My Soul and knowing that when I listen to David singing songs like it, he’s somehow there encouraging you to hang in there and be strong. Things are settling down somehow and I know they will get better. i will catch up to things. Once, after David’s departure, I had commented that Wild Horses couldn’t keep me away. Just want to say I’m still here.

    I loved the “Joyful Joyful” too and am amazed at what a professional David was at that young age. Justin Timberlake is coming to Georgia for a concert in the Fall. His VIP passes cost over eight hundred dollars. If David gets to be a mega star like JT will his VIP passes cost as much? I hope not because if they do I’ll never get to go to VIP and have a one on one with David.

    Oh,, that Joyful Joyful. He has such stage presence. Just amazing.

    Betsy,,,, I had a similar experience a few years ago now. We lived out in the country. I was on my own half mile road to the top of our huge hill. I decided to try to make it into work, ’cause the few inches of snow was melting. One side of our “cow path” is straight up,,, the other side,, well, straight down into a 30 foot drop of Douglas Firs. There is no room to pull off on either side.
    I jumped in the car saying “God help me!,,,, and you too David!” I turned on TOSOD and started out. I was terrified and was screaming even before it got crazy steep! At the worst spot, about 3/4 of the way up, I started to slide and i was totally panicked! David’s voice (on full blast!) “you’re in for the ride of your life,,,, hold on tight!! You’re going to be all right!!! Then that whirring music, as I struggled, slipping my way to the top of the hill. Just as I made it to the top and I was screaming with relief,,,,,”Something bout love,,,,, it sets you free!” and I was free and okay and had an uneventful ride into the city.
    It makes me shake just to think about it 🙂
    Good times 🙂

    Wow! Watching your drive and listening to David sing Look Around out of all his songs is surreal. I completely get how his voice would be a calming tool during this scary ride. That voice has brought calm when I’ve needed it, joy in the midst of down times. It’s seen me through menopause, surgery and now helping with the latest, gall stones, for real and strengthening me for surgery. I have no idea how this happens, it has to be a gift from God.

    Ahhh Bebe, my bad. You did say you hope he kept that shirt. I hope so to. 🙂

    Another outfit I hope he kept is the one from the Wichita concert. He was actually sick that night, from what I heard. Maybe that’s why he wasn’t as bouncy. It reminds me more of how he moves in his sound checks, smooth and laid back. But whatever the reason, he was amazing and he set the audience on fire. Check out SBL from that night. (Honorable mention goes to 1:17-1:25, that great walk that spawned Mr. Confidence.)

  57. well, that Camo shirt is certainly magical. Made me disappear into the vortex for awhile, watching on repeat!!
    He certainly sounded wonderful in that soundcheck. kjfhfhlsjfhlkjshshf! Didn’t even hunker down for “faaaaaccccce!” Love that flirty grin (at about 3:15,16,17) after that note. He knows he just killed it, and his audience!

    Abrra, hahaha!. That jacket! You know, it was so different, for David.But he looked awesome that night,believe me. That picture doesn’t really do it justice.
    Angelica, that dancing chicken is hilarious, I can’t stop laughing.
    oops, time for a pepsi ,and Nandiiiiito Akooooo♫♪

    The blue jacket has been one of my favorite looks for David. I agree, he looks like a prince.
