For any friends and family who may be wondering, we are okay. We made it through the storms with little damage to our town directly, though our outlying areas and most of North Alabama in general are in bad shape. We have been without power since Wednesday and expect to wait a couple more days for it to be fully restored.
The latest I am hearing is that there are 208 confirmed deaths in Alabama, and over 1700 injured. We are so grateful to have all our family accounted for, enough food to get us by, and our homes intact. Many people here will go to bed hungry tonight and have suddenly found themselves with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
Thank you for all the thoughts, prayers, and phone calls!
