Seeing pictures and videos of the huge tornado that hit Tusacaloosa and Birmingham is surreal. It's crazy to look at pictures and know what part of town you're looking at, but no landmarks are there. Krispy Kreme, gone, taxi fads gone, a house I spent many hours in my freshman year, gone. I am so grateful that all of my friends and loved ones are so far accounted for and safe. One friend had a tornado just a couple streets over from her, way too close for comfort. I miss everyone down there and I really want to come down and do something. We'll he there in 2.5 weeks and I can't imagine how different it will be. My heart, my prayers and most every thought today is going out to the people of Tuscaloosa. May Heavenly Father keep His merciful hand over you and keep protecting you.
