    I know this is not the right place for this but I had several PM's from concerned people and I wanted to updated everyone and let them know we came out of the storm better for the most part.

    We just got power back on, it went off about midnight but we are some of the lucky one's around here. I have a trampoline in my back yard that belongs to a family about 2 miles down the road, some damage to the house and roof that will probably need repaired today but for the most part we were lucky.

    I lost a lot of time on draft stuff but it was hardly my concern for more then a few hours last night. Hopefully I'll get back up and running soon but it looks like I have some cleanup and inspection to do first.

    Thanks to everyone who had kind words and prayers last night and I hope everyone else that was in the path of this storm has come out safe.

    Glad you are all right. I talked to my aunt this morning. She said 3 different tornadoes all came within a 1/4 of a mile from her and they got some debris in the front yard but they all missed her. She said one of them was coming right at her and she could not move but it shifted.

    Glad you are ok. That sucker rolled through Nashville yesterday and spun off a few tornadoes. We seem to have done ok but others weren't as fortunate.

    But glad to hear you are good.

    I apologize guys, I'm not likely to get a mock or much of anything out today. Internet is up and down and after driving to the next town over where I have friends I feel like I need to get over there and help out. They were not nearly as lucky as we were.

    At one point last night I had the family hunkered down in a little room in the middle of the house with bed mattresses surrounding us for about 2 hours in the pitch dark. The sounds were horrific.

    Kind of puts things into perspective and while I'll be home to enjoy the draft tonight right now smoke screens and rumors are way down on the scale on importance when you consider what my friends are neighbors are dealing with.

    I appreciate the support and prayers.

    Keep the site updated, I'll be checking in from my phone now and then and if something really good comes up save me some time and send a PM! lol :starspin

    I hope you realize i was just joking wth you! Friends and family and their safety should be all our priority at all times.
    I actually had my house ripped apart by a tornado in 1977 so I know what people are going through. Terrible, terrible situation.
    My sister could have easily lost her life in that one. She went to the sliding glass door to see what she must have thought was a train coming through the yard and it sucked her out through the door. She came out of it pretty well all things considered. For years she would get pretty upset when a bad storm rolled through. So glad to hear you and your family are safe.
