Weatherbeaten

Selma and Dallas County survived mostly unscathed from Wednesday's severe weather, but many areas of north and central Alabama are devastated from massive tornadoes and thunderstorms that began early in the morning and continued until late last night. Our family and friends in Tuscaloosa and Birmingham are fine, but so many people face the heartbreak of lost or missing loved ones and destroyed homes and businesses. My prayers go out to them! Never has this state seen so many violent storms that brought such devastation.

Thank you, Halcyon. The roses WERE beautiful prior to the storms, but they are a bit weather beaten here.

What a tragedy for the people of your state. I'm so glad to hear that you and your loved ones are safe. This little blogging world means I have more people I care about, and what happens in their part of the world!

I am glad you are okay...I just cannot imagine losing a loved one that way or even my home.
