    Hey Guys, I sat in my livingroom and watched the Tornados tear my community to peices. It hit everywhere. Missed me by 5 miles my brother by 1 mile. KSSS it tore the area you thought was Gander mountain to a disaster area. I was one of the very few in North Alabama with electricity. I am posting pictures now. Been tied up helping and trying to work at the same time. We still have no power at the dealership.

    One of our mechanics and our sales managers houses both took a big hit. No one hurt.

    The same road was hit when the super storms of 1974 came through.

    An awful way to kick the economy into high gear. The last picture here is cousin bubba's house...It is a law here that everyone has to have a cousin bubba.
