This is just the most tragic news, Opus. Almost 400 people killed. I am praying for all the people and pets affected by this. I'm happy the man and his doggie rode it out.

Wishing peace soon for those who have lost.

WoFat hasn't been on-line because the BIG twister missed his house by half a mile and left destruction and death in its wake. He's fine but said that he had pieces of other people's homes all over his property.

My bother-in-law owns a car dealership in Chatanooga. One of his employees was at work. His entire family was killed.

No small thing.

TV out. Electricity out. No Internet. Town closed down from lack of power. Waiting for the storms to come back. Interesting week. Glad it's over. Glad the Net is back up.

Wo, I'm so glad you are OK. Your state was ground zero in all this. Yow. I hope the power gets restored soon.

WoFat said...

We have power in the county. Parts of the town have it. Ditto the city of Huntsville, where they have dawn to dusk curfews. We could learn a lot from the Japanese on our behavior during a crisis. Hope we don't get the same kind of practice they do. A lot of our power loss is because wires were pulled from the nuclear power plants. Lots of wires.

Such a devastating scene. Our prayers go out to everyone affected by these terrible tornadoes. Let's not forget to do whatever we can to help...volunteer if we can, donate and pray.
I don't know WoFat, but I am happy to hear he and his family are OK.

WoFat, so glad you and you family are okay, considering all things. Beyond the obvious tragedies, the numbers of missing are staggering.

LL, I've wondered about the emergency workers in the area who were desperately needed, but had lost their own homes and/or family. I remember that from Katrina. To think of losing an entire family in a tornado is not something we often hear.

I live in Oklahoma and we have had terribly destructive tornadoes but nothing like this.

Truly heartbreaking. Been praying for the area and doing what else I can to help.
