    Please  pray to whatever higher power that you believe in that they bless the folks from Arkansas to the east coast of the USA. There have been major tornados today that hit very populated areas in Alabama.

     the tornados are still on the ground in places and heading toward the North carolina, Maryland, DC area.

     This will go down in the books as one of the worst storm systems to hit Alabama. Reports of 2 towns being totally devistated.

    Prayers on the way...

    We've lived through several close-calls from tornadoes and other severe weather...August 12, '05 was way too close for comfort, with our home suffering from moderate hail damage, and homes just a few hundred feet away were totally destroyed...not fun, no matter who you are, where you live or what you live in. Mobile home parks seem to be a tornado magnet, btw...

    Just found this thread,

    Better late than never----prayers for those in need coming from Macungie, PA.

    We are blessed in my area---hurricanes die out pretty good before they get here----tornadoes are rare & small here----About the worst we get are NorEasters, and big snow & ice storms, and most people around here can handle that stuff.
