As many of you probably all know the Southeast woke up to devastation this morning. They think that this was the largest outbreak of tornadoes in US History. I live in an area that rarely sees tornadoes. This is the second time in a few weeks that area has been hit . The previous time I watched a tornado rip through my neighborhood, and while it was small, it left an indelible mark on the people who live here. I believe that last nights tornadoes will be an experience we talk about for years to come. I have the luck of living near the only alert system I know of. I was able to use this, fb, and my cell phone to alert others that I know each time a tornado warning was issued. Although, one time last night I had a text from a friend before the sirens even went off saying our part of town was going to be hit. I lost count of how many times we had to hide. One time our downstairs neighbors came to get us to hide in their closets. Strangely enough it was my old closet I was hiding in. Eventually I managed to clean out a small hall closet to put the kids in. It was scary telling my 11 year old that if something came I would close the closet and he had to try his best to hold on to his 3 year old brother. I thank God we stayed safe. Unfortunately this morning there are at least 16 people dead, and many missing and injured. There re over 200 confirmed dead across the South. Keep these people in your prayers in thoughts to give them strength in hard times.
If you are looking for anyone the Red Cross may be able to help.
PS. Excuse the choppy writing I'm a little tired and jacked up on espresso.
