My son and his family returned home today. Power was restored to their corner of the world, so they packed up and headed up the interstate late this afternoon. It was fun having them here even if the circumstances weren't optimum.
I had no idea how many communities were hit by tornadoes on the 27th. Slowly, the news has trickled in. Everyone has seen the devastation in Tuscaloosa, but there are so many other places that were hit hard as well.
We were blessed. None of our friends or family were lost in the storm, but so many others were affected. It's amazing to see the way people pull together in times of trouble. People giving of their time and money and know how.
I'm so proud of my community. Alabamians are amazing.
