We ventured out yesterday to check out the damage from the storm the night before. According to the tornado chasers and the NWS a tornado 8 miles wide touched down between Norwalk and Monroeville not far from us at all. It was a scary storm-the kind that comes with a palpable aura of terror. Those are whole, healthy trees that were uprooted that you see stuck on the dam. Mother Nature is talking to us and we are all behaving like stupid, nasty little children ignoring her warnings of danger and her calls to action.
