Thumbs up Checking in from alabama after the storms

Well we got extremely lucky in the storms that hit north alabama. We had 4 major toronado's hit here. One they are considering to be an EF5. We have been out of power since wednesday afternoon and just now had it turned back on!!! I have never been so excited to have power back. It feels like christmas morning and I am 5 all over again! However there is still major devastation here. Last I heard in alabama alone we have lost 300 people to the storms. It's truly sad and I am grateful to have to have my life, my family and friends still alive and well.

That's great to hear man. 5 minutes from my location (roughly 10 miles away) we were hit to. Glade Springs, VA exit 29 off interstate 81 was leveled in those same storms. I lost power for just about 1 day and my cable was out for 2 days. I'm glad that you've made it through this.

Thanks guys it's been crazy since then, but the community has really pulled together and its an amazing thing to see. Most of north central alabama has been without power, but its slowly coming back on.
