    The son of our handyman down in Alabama was sucked out of the closet where he and his pregnant wife took shelter and deposited a hundred yards away.

    He’s critical, the wife was injured, but the baby is fine.

    Tornadoes scare me.

    Wow, that’s really sad. I guess I hadn’t been paying much attention to the news, but my thoughts go out to them.
