I'm pressed but not crushed, persecuted but not abandoned. I'm struck down but not destroyed. I'm blessed beyond all worth because his promise will endure, and His joy is going to be my strength.

We know how segregated America is, why don`t you ever see Obama, or any other president, visit the black towns that have been affected by storm damage?

Hey there neighbor! Glad to see you are okay as well. I'm in the Harvest/Monrovia area so no power at home yet, but at least I have a home to go to. So many in our area are not so fortunate. I came to work today just so I'd have some power!

I just got power back last night at 11:30, and Internet a little while ago. The whole northern part of the state has been declared a disaster area. Some of the hardest hit areas around me include Madison, Arab, Guntersville, Pisgah, Rainsville, and Harvest.
In Rainsville, an entire subdivision was removed from existence. You can barely tell where there used to be a foundation for a house. 34 deaths in that subdivision alone. They say the rescuers were having to retrieve bodies from treetops.
People in my area are finding rubbish from all over Alabama,and some from Mississippi.
This is the worst weather disaster in history for this area. The closest was in 1932,when an EF-5 removed Paint Rock AL from existence... and that was a single tornado. I lost count before noon Wednesday as to how many there were this time.
I have posted my own personal account of the situation here if anyone is interested. I'll try to get pictures later on; we're still trying to patch ourselves back together.
