Devastation in the South

First let me say that my heart and prayers go out to all those people who lost loved ones, houses or whole towns last night in the horrible storms that hit the South.
For those who haven't heard 160 tornadoes hit the South last night, 178 dead and that number is still climbing. Some of the tornadoes were a mile wide. One went 73 miles across Alabama and Georgia. Tuscaloosa, Alabama has some devastation as far as the eye can see. Some emergency crews were forced to leave the dead so that they could focus on getting the living out. No structure was safe from these storms. It is just a terribly sad and scary here. We have never, EVER had so much severe weather here. Every storm system seems to be carrying tornadoes with it this year. We were very lucky here in Thomson, GA again and did not get any tornadoes in our immediate area. We had thunderstorms but nothing real severe.

  1. In a way I am glad that we had our Directv shut off. Had I known all this was coming our way, it would have been a much scarier night.

  4. We in the UK have never experienced tornadoes, so it is hard for us to imagine what you guys must have endured. Glad to hear that you have not personally been affected. Stay safe!
