In Huntsville and surrounding areas (where many friends live...and where we frequent on weekends) they are without power. They have said it could be up to 5 days before power is restored due to damage with TVA.
At one point yesterday, there was a tornado warning in every county of Alabama. It was insane...the media did not know what areas to concentrate...and were basically telling the entire stated to take cover. We were without power most of the day yesterday...but it was restored last night...I was thankful for my radio on my iPod, candles, and friends in other areas with access to television to tell us when the next round should hit.
There were anxious moments when the tornadoes were going through Tuscaloosa...I have both friends and family in that area...and was nervous until we heard from them.
Today is a day to count blessings and hug friends...and strangers that have lost people they love. Please say a prayer for my state.
