:ditto: I'd like the sightseers to know that if your have the ability to cruise past slowly and stare at those trying re-build their lives, then you can get your a@#$$% out of the car and lend a hand, otherwise stay out. It makes those trying to clean up seem to be "on display" for entertainment of the curious and believe me, they don't ;like it.


I agree, I have heard about the same problem around here as well. Maybe put up a gate and then charge them $$$ to drive through. Put the $$$ in a fund to help those hit by the tornado's, because you know insurance isn't going to cover everything.

robby, I want to thank you for the picture you posted yourself. The whole house was destroyed, but someone took the time to erect a flag. Some good folks around you. Take care.

Was going to work on filling
My tires with fluid this weekend mother nature had different plans for me albeit a very close call for me barely a half mile away a tornado ripped through my area it was dead on course for my house but shifted a 1/4 mile away I wasn't home at the time my wife and kids were I work in ems and it's a terrible terrible feeling hearing all the destruction going across the radio knowing it heading toward your family. I got lucky no damage at all how I don't really know my neighbors weren't so fortunate

theLord found favor with you and your family give Him the glory He guides the storms .

That's the strangeness of toronados. Hard to believe it could take the whole garage and still leave the car on the rack.

How about the house that was totally destroyed except for the hall closet where the Mother and kids where? It is truly amazing how something that violent and forceful could leave a gallon of milk, or a closet standing. But you usually hear stories like this with tornado's.
