Tornado Strikes in MS.

John at the FD for a 24 hour shift today. :( Only two more left. :)

The bad weather hit Yazoo City, Durant and a few other little towns to the North of where we are staying. The weatherman is guessing that it was an F4 tornado. There were several houses destroyed, lots of injuries and a couple of deaths as of this afternoon. Several people have sent in videos to the TV stations showing the areas of devastation. We were lucky the bad weather passed us by but are saddened for those who have lost so much.

I spent the morning running errands with my sister then later this afternoon headed over to meet some former co-workers and friends for dinner at The Corner Bakery.

John and the guys at the fire station were going to grill steaks for their dinner. I am sure they were delicious.

Remember to laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
