    I wish you guys the best of luck. :(

    All I'm getting is scattered T-storms. We rarely see tornadoes in the North East.

    As some of you know, my gal took a recent job at TruBlue, which is the parent company of several companies, but the main one is Labor Ready.

    These are pictures of the Labor Ready in Tuscaloosa, AL that got hit by the tornado. The building was completely destroyed, obviously, and they had a few medium level injuries and a lot of cuts and scrapes, but THANK GOD no deaths or serious injuries.

    The picture of the guy getting pulled out of the rubble is one of my gal's employees. :eek:

    I read somewhere a few years ago that the USA has more severe weather that any other place on earth.

    I texted SuprDave today. I didn't ask him about the weather but he was fine and enjoying life. He just did a very long stint of work with very few days off for weeks on end and he finally is back to a regular work schedule and enjoying life again. He is fine.

    I've read that too, specifically lighting storms and wind storms. If only we would tap into that energy ;)

    It seemed like a Winter full of Northern snowstorms, and now the Spring is off to a rough start. It has me concerned about the hurricane season.

    Good news; the folks at Budweiser will breathe a sigh of relief. :D
