As for us.... We are safe.

Thanks to all of you who have e-mailed me since Tuesday night. What a wicked night of storms. There are no words to describe the devastation that has hit not only Tennessee but Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Kentucky.

Most of you know that I live in a very small community of 365 people. Everybody knows everybody and if one of those tornados had come through this community it would have wiped it out.

There were two that was spotted to hit our small town head on. They didn't... one went round to the south of us and one went around to the north of us. We are blessed. There were so many more that wasn't. The one that went south of us is another small community which is only 4 miles down the road. The one that went north and hit is about 10 miles from my town. Again... we were blessed.

I'm sure everyone has heard of the tornado that hit Jackson, TN. I work in Jackson. I work about 3 - 4 miles from Union University which was heavily damaged. The tornado went right over our plant but did not touch it.

Please remember to keep all the victims of this tragedy in your thoughts and prayers.

If this is any indication of March and April... I'm moving somewhere else.

I'm so glad you and yours are safe. I feel terrible for those college students, many of whom lost all of their possessions. Tragic.

Hopefully the good thoughts and prayers being said generated a safe bubble around you sis.

Um... please don't mention storms and March in the same sentence...

Love you!
