Storms...big storms...night before last here in our area - 3 people dead and 10 seriously injured - long night for Careflight people...serious devastation in parts of Anna, Westminster, and Pilot Point...tornado was a jumper - F3...reminds us all how Mother Nature can reverse our lives and humble us at will...you have to feel sorry for these folks, not only because of the loss of life and property, but also because these are rural communities without the same early warning system sirens those of us who live in metro area have at our disposable...no warning=loss of life almost every time...
