Stormy Weather

Please keep the people of Alabama and the Southeastern and Eastern United States in your thoughts and prayers.  We are experiencing severe weather.  Numerous tornadoes have hit Alabama with reports as high as 58 dead in Alabama.  The tornado in Tuscaloosa was reported to be a mile wide and hit along along MacFarland Boulevard; which if you know anything about Tuscaloosa, this is one of the busiest area of the city.  Many restaurants, stores and the mall are along MacFarland Boulevard.
The storms have been widespread throughout Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia.  Reports are that up to 80 or more people have died as a result of these lines of storms.  If the storms have not reached you yet, I am thinking of you guys and you are in my prayers.  Where I live, we still have a few more storms to pass through later tonight, but we are hoping that the most severe weather is passed us.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    They hit here in VA, too, just west of me. Then tonight's storms went east of me. Maybe I'm living a charmed life. I'll be praying for everyone who's been impacted by this massive series of storms!Peace <3Jay

    Luckily, where I live was not hit by the tornadoes, though they seemed to hit all around us. I am glad you guys got through the storms safely. There is still a lot of clean-up to be done. Tuscaloosa will probably never be the same.On a lighter note, I was told that in Tuscaloosa (the home of the Univ. of Alabama) the stores ran out of beer before they ran out of water.
