A couple of folks have messaged or called, so I thought I'd just give a shout out that I am not in the area that was severely affected by the devastating tornado. We had severe weather around us, but nothing like Joplin has suffered. That said, exMIL (whom I adore) is from that area, and one of my 2 exBIL's lives near there. We have tried not to tie up phone lines calling people, but we do have word that some family and friends are confirmed dead and some are missing. Both exBIL's are professional fire fighters. One left to go help an hour after it hit. The other will be going down to help, also. Please keep ALL of those folks in your prayers.
