we made it through the storms

Emarinn, myself and family are safe in Decatur. The destruction is all around us, but not here somehow. We'll try to log in when we get to atlanta and can have access to internet better than our phones tonight. I saw truthseeker was ok. Any others from north alabama chime in yet?

I just got power back today, had multiple tornadoes go through Madison County on Wed. Power went out Wed night, went 5 1/2 days without power. Family is ok, just tired from doing more work then we are used to to create hot water and keeping a fire going the majority of each day. Took my first hot shower in 5 days this evening, I never thought I would miss such a simple task. I am glad to be back online.

I am real glad you and your family are doing ok Gaator. I've been thru huricanes on the island and I know how much you can miss the simplest of pleasures. You take care buddy, good to see you back online.

We still have tree's down, our fence is still ate up and we are waiting for the tree company to come get the tree's since they are to big for us to haul off ourselves. If it would just quit raining maybe they could get in to do some work /sigh

We made it. Got power back yesterday and internet/phone/tv today. An F4 tornado went southeast behind our house. The damage all around us is horrific. It's very sad.

I'm winding up my Mother's move to a 'senior apartment' type place, and found a shoebox crammed full of the letters she and my father exchanged during their courtship and engagement. They are irreplaceable of course, and it brought to mind how many of those folks in the South have lost just this sort of personal and family history due to those tornadoes. No wonder their hearts ache. :(

our round trip to and from atlanta to avoid the initial panic went out smaller roads east of here to avoid the problems that were to the south of us, then when we came back monday we caught i65 north through birmingham... i've seen destruction from tornados before, but this group of storms was unbelievable. on the way to out of alabama it seemed like we couldn't go 5 miles without being able to see major destruction. we had to have seen at least a couple dozen homes badly damaged or leveled entirely. some similar stuff up 65 on the way back, but it's not as easy to see that stuff from the interstate. i'm still trying to wrap my head around it. i'm glad to hear everyone here from AL has been safe so far.
