What a Difference a Day Makes

Saturday Night brought an F3 Tornado through my small town. For nearly 19 miles of devastation(it was 3/4 of a mile wide).... It looks like a war zone. My family and I were among the lucky one's that had no damage at all,but seeing what other's have lost breaks my heart. There is/was a lot of beautiful woods in my area. This storm has changed that skyline forever. Of the ones lucky enough to have kept their homes,many are still without power. The clean up will take many month's but still you can not replace the history of the age old buildings and the beauty of 150 year old trees. But,here is the amazing part. No one was killed in this storm. To me that is a miracle and much to be thankful for. Here is just a little sample of what could be seen at day break last Sunday morning.
