    I'm here! Thanks to Brother PB for checking on me! It was a harrowing night. We lost electricity - we had kids come to school this morning that still did not have electricity and many spent the night in their basements - as did Ron and I.

    Like Waremock said - only one reported death and it was in Greensboro! Amazing!

    Ron has a sister in Greensboro...he's checking on her now. He got no answer. Guess we'll try again later.

    Ron's sister is fine---tornado hit about 8 miles from where she lives. He just now got off the phone with her. Thanks for the prayers.

    Indeed! Thank you, Lord, for their safety.

    Bitsy, was very glad to see your name posted in this thread when I got back to my puter this evening!
