    Glad to hear your OK though! 4-5 days without power is minimal compared to the tremendous losses others have suffered.

    Thanks for checking in.

    Oh, I do feel for you! We just haven't been able to rest much just thinking about these terrible tornadoes. We used our generator last year in June when the tornado ripped through here. We had to leave our torn up house. I really didn't think this feeling would last this long, but I haven't slept well since the first tornado swept through this spring.

    We pray daily for all of you!

    I have been watching the new all morning and have been shocked and saddened at all the devastation I've been seeing and the loss of lives. Stay safe Deb and everyone else in harms way!

    Last night was so scary. We had numerous tornado sightings/touchdowns where we live. I work in a hospital and it was the first time that we had to actually call a Code Toro (Tornado Warning). It was very surreal having all our patients out in the hall, close to the desk and away from the windows in their rooms. It was a night we thought would never end. We were blessed not to have received any damage this time.

    Glad you're okay! My brother lives in Tuscaloosa. He called my mom to say they were okay but she didn't think to ask if they had power. We assume they are out helping others since they aren't answering the phone or emails.

    We had some incredible storms pass over us here in MD, but nothing like the carnage further west. A friend of mine in Alabama had to run with her family and her dog into a neighbor's basement while a tornado leveled her home to its foundation. She lost everything - house, cars, her at-home business in her sewing room, and all of her pet guinea pigs and rats. Absolutely devastating. It's amazing they escaped with their lives, though her daughter is on oxygen right now.

    A wonderful group of her friends online who work with Guinea Pig Rescues have started a fund on her family's behalf.

    These are all of the babies that she lost, all of them rescues, along with her work space. Seeing the pictures, it's just heartbreaking for me to imagine what she's going through.

    I'm simply reposting this to get the word out about poor Marsha. I know that her story has been repeated over and over these past few days.
