Prayers and warmest thoughts for all those still dealing with the deadly tornadoes that ripped our state apart a year ago.

No That was awful. These last couple of years have changed how many of us feel when storms come, I think. We have no basement and just have a closet to hide in, and I know it won't withstand much of anything. If we could put in a little shelter we would, but they are expensive, and this is how it is for many in our area. I feel so bad for all those who were affected and the losses were just horrendous. How sad No

Purr and I spent some time last night setting up our storm room in the basement. We've got a microwave, a radio, a couple of chairs, food and water, a bed for B-man, and some other important stuff.

I spent several weeks in the thick of the storms and the recover, including being in Hackleburg the night of the tornadoes. I went back that weekend and spent 76 hours there on three hours sleep.

The people across the street from us saw a funnel right over our house and dove for cover right before two huge oaks got broken off to fall into their utility room. There were lots of lucky people, too. I wish I had a basement, but we just have a crawlspace. I like those shelters you dig into the ground and bury, but they are expensive. I'm so glad you have that all ready, Purr and Sassy!
