I saw that on the news last night, it looks like they have been getting a lot this year and are not into the worse time of year for them.

I watched some footage on the news tonight. Difficult to imagine your feeling of powerlessness when you see something like that bearing down on you.

Yes, after the very pleasant interlude that today has been, it's back to the horror of real life again. Natural disaster, war and murder. back down to earth with a bump.

We received this email from our friend who lives in Birmingham,AL. "That was the one that devastated Alabama including Birmingham several days ago. Trees down on houses in my neighborhood, but not on mine. I haven't left my house since. Spent the day hiding from the storms in my basement. A lot of the roads are impassible with tree limbs, and north Bham has human body parts everywhere. Lots of dead." We don’t know how lucky we are!
