April 27 is not just a wedding anniversary for us. It is also the anniversary of the tornadoes of 2011, one of the deadliest tornado outbreaks in Alabama history. My Account.
The view from our bedroom window that day:
As we prepare for possibly three waves of severe weather over the next two days, please say a prayer for those in harm's way. It looks as if they will call school early this morning. I am hopeful that today and tomorrow will not be a repeat - growing up in the South, you learn what the signs are when bad weather is ahead. I will never forget walking outside the morning of 4.27 and feeling like the sky was wrong. It was tangible that bad things were coming. I did not get that same feeling this morning, but if we learned anything that day, it is to always be aware and prepared.
