Everyone here safe after the lovely afternoon of storms wreaking havoc from the midwest to the east coast? My neighborhood got hit pretty hard(trees in houses etc...) but not nearly as bad as some folks out towards the midwest.

I live for others and I answer to God and sometimes to my wife too.
We had two tornado warnings in the city where I work, and also at the house. Lots of trees down at work, and I discovered a semi truck on its side in a parking lot... I thought for sure I would find a driver, but thank god it was empty of people and cargo.

i live in nw arkansas and were still repairing storm damage from past couple of weeks worth of nasty storms,tore the complete roof off my 10x14 storage building chipboard,tarpaper shingles,all of it scattered all over my yard and my neihbors were bailing hay and found my daughters jumbo trampoline with they"re hay cutter,i never could find it,its ruined,it just dissapeared.80 to 100 mph winds,never seen rain poor sideways, it was a scary nite.thank god my kids are ok.
Here in Maryland the house seems OK (Have to check the roof in daylight), but coming up on 20 hours with out power. Suddenly work is nice with light, A/C and stuff.
Compared with others things aren't so bad.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

Sorry, couldn't help but make that joke.
My sincere condolences to those that were effected by nature's fury - it's never fun.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
