    Can't help but think of April 27, 2011, when a monster tornado tore up part of Tuscaloosa steamrolled north through various wrecked communities and missed my home by a quarter of a mile in Pleasant Grove, a 15-minute drive from Birmingham, a portion of which was also hit. Pleasant Grove caught it BAD. Two blocks away from where I live began extensive destruction that looked like a war zone.
    I was very lucky. Save for a huge pecan tree dropping across my front yard, I received no damage, though next door neighbors did. Three days after I watched telephone poles do a dance while dropping lines, my power was actually restored. For half a year, me dino watched big flatbed trucks drive by laden with debris.


    Yesterday, the same storm that destroyed Mayfield dropped about 12 hours of rain here with no thunder, no noticable wind.

    Haven't seen that much tornado damage since the late 80s when 3 tornadoes took out an entire town here in CT...I remember driving home as they went overhead.

    Yes, thoughts, prayers and donations for Mayfield.

    I cannot imagine a Tornado that spread over 200 miles and four states. I have never seen a Tornado up close and personal but my teenage son called me on the phone he was watching one going down the street that took out a lot of awnings on businesses. I asked him to please get away from the plate glass doors and get under the bed. I was at work in Houston 25 miles away.

    Waited until late morning yesterday to hear from my brother. He finally got through, feeling very fortunate that the monster was sideswiped by two different storms on its beeline towards them. They had high winds, hail, torrential rain, but no tornado. If I could help the enormous line of destroyed towns across all those states I would be down there, serving grilled hotdogs out of the back of my pickup truck if nothing else. I've been through too many of those things to take them lightly.
