    i just wanted to offer my sincere condolences and prayers to anyone who may check this board that was affected by the deadly events that occurred last night. The last I heard at least 19 people have perished(in TN), mostly in western tennessee. I had also heard a large tornado did a lot of damage in Hopkinsville, Ky.



    my prayers and thoughts are with you.



    sincerely

    rc

    i heard of one death last night in Arkansas just north of Paragould from the storms. Got some siding damage here on the house. Had hail the size of golf balls about 3-4 inches deep at the side of the house.

    There was a 54 yr. old man that died in a clothing store collapse here in Fairview Heights Ill., I think that is the only death close to here but 1 to many. My prayers also go out to those who have lost loved ones and houses do to this terrible storm.

    We had a couple of trees blow down in the yard last night. We have them all cleaned up now except for the stumps. Our neighbor had the vinyl soffit ceiling on her front porch blown loose. Strips of vinyl scattered all over. Other than that, everything is ok here.

    Called a buddy of mine that lives at Dyersburg Tn. And he had been out almost all night. They had found 15 dead north east of there.
    Sure was bad.

    I guess the suberbs of nashville got hit pretty hard eleven people were confirmed dead last night, I don't know if the count went up over night.I'm thinking about building a tornado shelter, seems like they get closer every year.

    I dodged the bullet by about 100 yards a few years ago. I'ts a terrable expierence. Something you just never forget. I'm still gun-shy everytime the wind picks up. And yes, they DO sound like a freight train. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has lost a loved one or had severe damage.

    Yea, the weather has sure changed around here in the last five years, I just hate being out on the road, and Laura being here by her self, I left out last sunday night ahead of the storms and got up there on I-71 and the wind hit me and I thought it was going to blow me over, I had 44 thousand in the trailer, I slowed down and pulled in the old chicken house up at campbellsburg and went to bed...
