DV and the Tornados

Thanks to all of you that have sent an email inquiring about my well being with the recent storms.  I am alive!  The North Alabama area was devastated by a rash of tornadoes yesterday.  I have never in my life seem weather of the likes that came through this area.  Over 120 tornadoes in the state and 16 straight hours of weather warnings.  Every time one would come through, another was right behind it.  But, me and my family are fine, and we had no damage.  Some of the people are work with aren't so lucky. 

We are currently without power, and expected to be that way for the next 4-5 days.  Thank goodness for a laptop, power inverter to use in my truck, and a verizon aircard.  LOL!  For the most part though, I will not be online or able to access the internet.  I'm sorry I couldn't personally respond to each and every email I received, but figured one blanket message here would suffice. 

I will be around as soon as we regain power.  Thanks again for all the well-wishes.  I appreciate the concern of you all.  Take care and have a great weekend. 


PS - no FAF this week!  Sorry!  :)


  1. Thank you DV for the update! My thoughts are with you....

  2. DV,

    I just seen the news on CNN. I'm glad you and your family are ok. Thank you for letting us know.


  3. My thoughts and well wishes are you with you and your family.
    Be safe.

  4. Thank you for letting us know you are ok... You were the first person (the only one I know in AL) I thought of.

    I hope this doesnt mean there will be a busy hurricane season for us in South FL this year.

    Stay safe DV

  5. Thanks for all your thought and prayers. It's king of funny, but you all know more, most of the time, than I do, about all the damage and such. With no power, no tv, and limited internet, I know nothing really other than what I hear on local radio. Oh well, such is life. Power is slowly coming back. GOD I need a HOT shower! LOL! Thanks again everyone!


  6. Glad to hear everything is okay! I hope that Hot shower comes soon!
