Prayers out to all of the Southern Bolters and their families and to all southern families that were affected by yesterday’s Easter tornadoes. There were several near misses for us but others were not so lucky.

These are trying times.

Glad to hear you were not in harms way. I was thinking about some of those folks in Louisiana and Mississippi, hope all are well.

Sounds like northwest Georgia got hit hard as well.

I think this is the latest news. "Eleven people were killed in Mississippi, and six more died in northwest Georgia. Two other bodies were pulled from damaged homes in Arkansas and South Carolina."

All is well here. We here in Alabama were very lucky. Near misses for in-laws in Carbon Hill and Brookside and Son and Daughter-in-law in Tuscaloosa. They say the power will be out until Wednesday morning in Brookside.

My son lives in Tuscaloosa and my daughter lived with him while attending college back in 2011. They, along with my niece and nephew, were right in the middle of the tornado that hit Tuscaloosa on April, 27th. They all made it out alive, but barely. There were many close neighbors and friends that did not.

We all have a special respect for tornadoes and those affected by them.

We had some high winds but nothing really bad here in the upstate of S.C. I live not far from what we call "tornado alley" in my area. We were very fortunate.
I did wonder how my deck chair got into the yard. The wind had to have picked it up almost straight up and over the 3ft railing. No other way for it to get out.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Glad to hear you are safe Alvin. We also live in tornado alley or actually what is refered to as "Dixie Alley" [en.wikipedia.org]. Since we moved here in 2001 we have had tornadoes less than a mile on either side of us. Knowing this, we built a reinforced concrete storm shelter when we added on in 2004. When the the weather gets bad or we hear the sirens, we gather up the animals and move down there to safety.

We have had a few EF1's in the surrounding area but nothing close, we have made up for it in rain though.
