My part of the world was severely pounded by thunderstorms and tornadoes today.  In my 40 years of living in Tornado Alley, I cannot recall a more relentless and harried day of weather.

Dozens have died.  I fear dozens more will be discovered.  A good friend of mine has lost his house.  Thankfully, he and his family are all safe.

Infrastructures—power, transportation, communication—are somewhere between severely damaged and destroyed.  Neighbors, if it’s not an emergency, please stay put.

Friends and family of mine:  everyone is fine at my house.  If you need me, please get me online.  All of the telephone networks are saturated, and I don’t wish to contribute to the problem.

All, please, spend part of the rest of your week with Alabama in your thoughts and prayers.  We need them.  Also, if you are so inclined, you can help here.  Thank you in advance.
