Sweet Home Alabama

My heart is just aching right now for the town of Tuscaloosa and all towns affected by this crazy band of storms from the week. I hold Tuscaloosa near and dear to my heart. I love this town!!!

Once I heard how intense the storms were, I immediately called our family and friends in the area. Berry was out of power and cell service doesn't really exist there on a good I was so relieved when I finally saw that my sister in law made a comment on something on facebook. My best friend and Zach's brother's family live in Tuscaloosa and Northport and I heard from both of them that they were safe and sound. So many prayers!
But seeing the pictures today is just devastating! There is not a tree standing, cars turned, house dempolished, restaruants vansihed, rubble everywhere! While I lived in Tuscaloosa, I experienced Hurricane Ivan and Katrina and I think 3 tornadoes....this one storm caused more than all of those combined!

Please keep my Sweet Home Alabama in your prayers! A long road of recovery is ahead!

I thought of your family when I saw how bad the storm was in Tsucaloosa. I am SO glad to hear(see) that everyone you know was OK.
