I am just posting to say I hope you are all well. Let us know if you have been affected by these storms. If you need anything, let us all know. That's what we are here for.
Hoping you are all safe!

Hi Cara -- it was a rough night in Spring Hill, TN (just south of Franklin) -- but we did fine -- just did not get much sleep! We are so thankful this morning to be safe and sound.

PS -- I have a 7 year old son with type 1
I'm so glad to hear you are okay!
I got the fun of being in the first city in TN to get hit... and it hit in two big, nasty waves of thunderstorms and funnel clouds (a couple of which touched down). I'm a bit lucky considering it destroyed a shopping mall here in Memphis that is only a few miles away from my home! I feel so fortunate that I made it through without any injury or damaged property. I hope everyone else made it through OK as well.
You are in Memphis and Doris Ann is in Jackson. I'm glad to hear you are okay. We are still waiting to hear from Doris Ann.
Yeah, I'm praying for her too. I hear Jackson got hit even harder than Memphis.
I sent a message to Manny to let him know she was in a hard hit area. He said he'd try to get ahold of her also. Jackson looks pretty bad from what I've seen on tv. Let's just keep praying.
Vivian, who lives in Carthage, TN is fine.
As are 2 of our other members that I have heard from on blogger. So this is a good thing.
Hopefully we'll hear about Doris by the end of the day.
Hey Cara,

I was 50 miles away from Jackson when they hit in my hometown of Milledgeville in a stormhouse with my grandmother, my oldest, her hubby, and my at the time 18 month old granddaughter with my daughter very heavy with my 2nd granddaughter who hit this world weighing 9pounds 8 ounces on that treable day. Yep it got North Jasckson about 10 miles from my side of Beech Bluff and took out Union University but it really didn't even look like the wind blew on the eastside of Jackson!
