    Tornadoes hit Alabama - including Tuscaloosa - leaving 128 dead in Alabama alone

    I know many Alabama fans were there for us in the aftermath of Katrina, the least we can do if offer our comfort and prayers now to those affected.

    :geaux: Prayers going up for them. I've got a good Navy buddy, Dwayne, who lives in Pleasant Grove near Birmingham. Pleasant Grove was just devastated by a large tornado last night and my friend lost the roof of his house. He was at work but his wife and grandson were in the house when the storm came through. The Lord was looking over them and no one was injured. His sister's house in the same neighborhood was leveled and I don't know if anyone there were injured or not.

    Me and Dwayne always had a great time with the LSU/Alabama rivalry over the years, especially when we were stationed overseas in the Navy. We always ragged each other during the game of course, and drank a lot of beer, but we always supported the other team when they played someone else. My wife & I just went on a cruise with Dwayne & his wife earlier this month after not seeing them for 25 yrs. We all had a blast. I'm really thankful that The Lord blessed them and no one was hurt. Hang in there buddy! You'll get through this. :LSU231:

    The pictures out of Tuscaloosa are simply terrifying.

    gonna be a lot longer than that. i've seen storms like that up close, and its gonna take a long while to clean up. not to mention rebuild.

    i have a cousin in tuscaloosa who is a professor at the university. when i checked on her yesterday evening, she said it was absolutely awful there, and she was sure she didnt even know how bad because everything was so overwhelmed. thank god she and her family are ok.

    Thanks guys/gals for the prayers and thoughts. That surrounding area MS/AL got simply hammered. I've got several aunts and uncles in that area that we still haven't heard from this morning. The pics and videos just sent a sick feeling throughout my entire body.

    Thanks for the support. :thumb:

    My parents were supposed to be driving through that area during that weather on a return trip from my sister's house in Nashville. Thankfully they decided to head home a day early.

    Thoughts and prayers with all the folks in MS/AL.
