    Holy crap guys (and gals)! I'm not the praying kind, but sincerest best of luck to you all. I've been moaning to my friends all week about the weather because we got snow up here... I guess I'll just STFU about that. I hope everyone (and those they care about) are unscathed by this latest round of storms.

    I saw the tornado touch down. There actually two that touched down and I do have pictures of both. My parents live in the Woodhaven subdivision that was devastated. These were 4,000-7,000 square foot well-built brick homes that ranged in price from $500K - $4 million. The news today said that the wind speed of the tornadoes that ripped through Woodhaven were in excess of 200 MPH!

    The tornadoes touched down about 250 yards behind my parents home. They had no damage, but the damage in the front part of the subdivision is humbling and would make a grown man cry. 8 people died. My neighbor was helping a friend from his church move his antique furniture. He walked across thee field of debris and found a clock that had stopped when the tornado hit...2:26 PM CST.

    I do know several people who were hit hard, but fortunately they were at work when their homes were destroyed. Our power came back on at about 7:00PM, but our cable was out all night, so I could not get on line. The video footage from the media can not begin to tell the story of I saw this morning from driving around--and I did not even get to the very worst parts.

    Tornadoes are humbling raw energy. If you have one nearby, don't screw around, take cover and pray hard that it doesn't hit you directly, because it if does, theres not a thing you can do but meet your maker.
