Yesterday we had what they are calling the worst storm we have ever had. It came in 3 waves of tornado's. So far I think there are like 15 confirmed deaths and over 100,000 without power. My power went out last night around 8:00 and I got gas cans and got the generator running and our power came back on around 3:00 in the morn. My family was very fortunate our house was not touched and we have power back on. We have some friends coming to spend the night at our house tonight that are out of power. Please pray for our town.

The last pic is a trees down in my moms back yard, the view from the deck that used to be the back yard. She had trees fall all around her house but not one hit the house thank God. The white house is my moms next door neighbor and they were not home when the trees hit the house.

Glad to hear that you and your family are ok and did not get any damage. Those storms did a lot of damage down by you. Hope every body stay safe.

I know they were calling for rain all day Monday and I ended up mowing 9 yards. I actually mowed one this morn and have a really full day tomorrow. I will probably end up working Saturday to get caught up.

Our friends are here again tonight still no power at their house. On a better note I cut 10 today solo and I do not have to work Saturday. I saw literally like 50 power board bucket trucks coming down 75 south today all from companies I have never heard of, guess they are coming to help out. Thanks and keep us in your prayers.
