Thinking Today of Those Who Are Suffering
Yesterday, a powerful tornado, perhaps as strong as an F5, tore through large sections of West and North Central Alabama. Fortunately, the twister tracked north and spared my parents. But it did not spare thousands of people who are without power or homes today. And it did not spare the nearly 200 people who lost their lives. If there is any silver lining to be found, storms this powerful and massive are extremely rare. I'm fortunate in that I no longer live in a part of the country where tornadoes of any size are frequent.
EDIT: Here is video of the Tuscaloosa tornado.
