The current weather system is spawning tornadoes throughout the region and Enterprise, AL has apparently been hit badly. Please check in if you live live in the impacted areas so that we know all is well.
We got lucky here too. There were a lot of warnings out but no tornados in our area that I know of. Just LOTS of wind all day long with on and off rain. It got very scary-looking outside for a while and all the surrounding counties sent the kids home from school about mid-day - better safe than sorry.
The news about the high school in Alabama just breaks my heart.
We saw the news about Alabama on Aussie TV tonight. From what we saw - the kids and staff at the school did everything right under the circumstances. It could have been so much worse. Still, it's always tragic when lives are lost, even just one.
