News story
just got home from work, thank you for posting this. I agree with you, so tragic, but relieved it is not as bad as first reported

A family we are friends with who live across the street from Plaza Towers (the school on the news) is safe and accounted for. Their home is gone, but their family is together!

My wife's cousin lost his house, but his family is safe!

One of my best friends lost his home (he was out of town at the time) but his sons made it out in time and are safe!

A friend that my wife taught with could not locate her two boys for most of last night, but we got word about 8:00 or so that they were found in the hospital and are expected to make it!

The line of folks just wanting to help is literally a mile long in places!

We finally heard from my grandma and her husband and they are safe! They rode it out in their storm shelter and it missed their house by under half a mile, but they're all good! We were very worried as we could not get a hold of them and could not get into that area to check.

Okay...enough for now...but wanted to report there is good news coming out of all this! My wife is very shaken up, and I think my kids are too. Thanks again for all the prayers!
many ((((HUGS)))) for you, what a relief to hear of the miraculous way they were all kept safe.
You will all be shaken up for a long time to come, best thing you can all do is share with each other and love each other.
((((HUGS))))

AS far as Tornado's go, we are actually below the average this year.

That's terrible but I believe it. I know at autozone they use to have a weekly report on how many customers each person helped and that effected your raises. I was always on the bottom because my main jobs were to do planograms and put up truck before I became the commercial sales manager.

I spoke with my father this morning and he is doing well. He went out for a walk today. He had to use a cane, but said he did good. He is making progress.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!
great that your dads recovery is going well, thanks for the update.
Enjoy your evening!
