We were hit by a Category E-2 or E-3 Tornado (the Meterologist wasn’t sure which one) on yesterday, just shy of 9 months since the last one on April 27th. I didn’t even realize it was that magnitude of a storm. I was awakened by the thundering and rain, but didn’t think anything of it, I just wondered when my power was going to go out. My husband’s phone started going off a little before 5 AM and woke him up and he immediately asked why I was not watching the news? Well, Girlfriends was still on – DUH! But seriously, I had no idea a tornado had even hit. I checked on my family and thankfully we were all good! Unfortunately I learned of a former co-worker, that is my namesake, had lost her home via facebook. I made it to work and learned one of my co-workers that stops by to speak to me every morning had some damage. But today, I received the link below and I was just numb. I just shared hair tips with my friend on Friday and on Monday, she has lost everything – her home, cars, possessions, but GOD is so good, because he spared her and her family’s life! There were two fatalities on yesterday. I read the story of one of the deaths and it was so heartbreaking. Please keep Alabama in your prayers, because we are going through it here!
