Thanks to all of you for taking the time to be there today. Mama loved it, too.
We had fun. The kids are playing their CDs while they're taking their baths.

Good photo. I might play around and see if I can make an outline key image to show who is who.

Glad everyone is ok. We were in Hattiesburg one hour before the tornado hit. If we had been following our standard schedule that day, we would have been in the area of the tornado when it hit.

Interesting story that I'll have to post tonight if anyone wants to hear it.

I had just left corner market which is next to the Oak Grove High School that was hit. LIterally as I was passing the high school the sirens were back on. I made up 2 redlights to a gas station and missed a call. Made it home--which is all of about 3 miles at most from high school. Out of the car it sounded odd...went inside lights flickering. Returned call and realized that I had just passed the path of the eye of the tornado before it hit within in minutes of driving by!

Hello all. Finally got internet connection back so I am able to get back to important things like the DISboards!! Grace and I are fine here in Petal. DD and DSiL are the same. Late Sunday afternoon we were outside looking at the black clouds and it sounded like a jet engine roaring. Little did we know that we were about a mile from the path of the tornado. Our power went out about 7:00pm Sunday so I went to find some gas for our generator. While I was out, I decided to go into Hattiesburg and check on the office and our apartment buildings that are scattered around the city. I couldn't get anywhere. US 49 was closed where 4th Street crosses over. I tried going down 4th and then turn on the street that runs behind Villies & La Fiesta (N 25th St) but it was blocked with downed power lines, trees and telephone poles. I tried going down 4th Street back towards downtown and turn at N Hutchinson (by Hattiesburg High) and nope. The baseball field was messed up but the Red Cross facility across the street was completely destroyed. So I had to turn around AGAIN (I'm leaving out dozens of times I had to turn here, turn there, turn around, weave past this or that, etc). Since it looked like getting to Hardy Street from this side of town was impossible, I backtracked and went down 7th Street to 38th Avenue to Hardy St (comes out at Wells Fargo bank/Starbucks/Crescent City - that intersection) and started down Hardy St back towards US 49. I only made it a few blocks and I couldn't go any further. I made it to just past Jimmy John's and there was an overturned truck and a stop light pole blocking the road. Okay, I give up. I was able to check 5 of the 6 apartment complexes but it was pitch black dark and all the downed lines were making it a bit dangerous to be riding around just after 170 mph winds from a tornado had hit! I finally made it back home about 9:30pm. Power had just come back on at our house and there was a 10:00pm curfew in Petal.

I was out on the road early Monday morning in the light of day and it was worse than I thought. The devastation across a WIDE area was horrendous. It is an absolute miracle of God that there were no fatalities. Literally over two thousand homes were damaged or destroyed and only about 80 people were treated for injuries of any kind. You've probably seen plenty of pictures but here are some links to pictures and a couple of videos...

Please pray for all those affected. Even after five 24-hour days of cleanup, it still looks like a war zone.

Glad y'all are ok. Have heard Villie's was destroyed. Anything else in that row also gone?

Have also heard speculation from one video that the Walmart on 98 was hit but haven't heard a confirmation.
