Storms in the southeast
« on: April 28, 2011, 12:17:31 PM »
My heart goes out out to everyone killed, injured, or left homeless due to the tornadoes in the southeast.  I'm especially concerned about Keith.  A map on CNN shows a tornado hit Huntsville, where the brewery is.  Let's have some good vibes for all the people in the area and especially our brewing bro.

Man, I had no idea Major was in danger. I have some realtives North of Atlanta. LAst I heard they were ok, not sure about today though. Wishing the best for Major. That's all he needs after his recent run of bad batches. Anyone got his number?

His account showed him active at 7am this morning, so hopefully that's a good sign.

It's very sad to see the death toll keep rising as the week goes on.  I hope everyone down there lands on their feet.

One of my sisters has a house about 2 miles from the St. Louis Airport in the town of Ferguson.  She says she and her family are okay with minimal damage to the house.  Everyone is hoping this weather pattern moves on soon and they can start getting back to normal.

Here's to all those people who are learning to deal with our mid-West weather.  Hurricanes are scary but at least you can see them coming and prepare.  I know exactly what they are going through (Iowans are usually a bit too laid back when it comes to tornadoes) and I wish them the best of luck.

I grew up in IA.  The screen at out drive in movie would get blown down every year.  Seems like one small town would disappear every tornado season.  I spent a memorable afternoon hiding from a tornado in a church basement after dropping acid....

Hey Denny-
I talked to Keith on the phone this morning. He and his wife/kids were fine. No damage to their place. No power but he seemed to escape any damage.

Thanks Brandon,
I was thinking about him when I heard of tornadoes in Huntsville.

I've been thinking about him all day. I hope he's okay. I was thinking he would have replied to the AL homebrew bill thread but apparently not.

What a tragedy down there. My heart goes out to all of the victims.

I think Major kept using a land line for his interwebs access.
So with so much damage out there it may be a while.

Good vibes sent.

Those was one of the things I thought about first. Well after all the deaths. I've never heard of so many being killed at one time by tornadoes. F'ing awful man. That's gotta top Katrina.
