whew. Glad THAT'S over!!!

Man alive, one tornado alert after the other from 9 am till 12 am!  Tornadoes around us but in town, just high winds, deadly lightening and hail.  My car survived but my son's Ford Fusion hybrid that  still hasn't lost it's newness from last year was totally pounded with at least golfball or larger hail.  We had all the way to softball size. He was with friends and so his car was not in the garage.  What a mess.  He has filed a claim.  I imagine half or more of the people in Knoxville have done the same.  But there should be peace for a few days.  I am worried about Great Granny, a dear blog family member and her son as well..and we haven't heard from her.  She's in Tullahoma I believe.  He lives in TN. somewhere and our State was pretty much all beleaguered.

Just checking in and thank you from the heart for checking on me'n'her and caring.  xoxoxox

  7. You're not the only one who's glad that's over. I watched the news coverage and wow...it's just unreal. I'm sure you know by now that GG and her son are fine. It was a relief to see her post.

  9. Carole, it's a relief to know that you and the Admiral and your son are OK. I'm sorry his new car was pounded with hail.
    I'm sorry I couldn't be online earlier. I think I need to upgrade to the iPhone or one like it with the internet.
    I live in NE Alabama. My TN son lives close to Tullahoma.

  13. Oh, so glad you are ok...such loss and sadness for so many. Life is unpredictable, yes. One room fine, another destroyed. I work with a young woman who just lost a cousin she was close to, not in the tornado, but he was snow camping and was buried in his tent in an anvalanche at night. The losses from the tornado feel like that, I can only hope for healing for everyone affected...

  15. Never underestimate the power of prayer. Even though we can't comprehend the reasoning behind these disastous events, they often help bring out the best in mankind. Prayer is a powerful tool in helping your fellow man.
    My thoughts and prayers are with all our American friends.... glad to know you are well.
