After seeing news about tornadoes going through the American South I thought it might be good to start a post here so that (if at all possible) Hubbers in the South might check in and let us know they're OK. I know there are likely to be power failures or "whatever else" even for those folks who are OK and whose families and homes are OK (or at least OK-enough); but I imagine there are quite a few people outside that region who would like to hear from other Hubbers in/around that region.
(If there's a post somewhere else where Southern Hubbers (or people who know them are "checking in") then, of course, disregard this one. I just haven't seen such a "check-in thing" on here and imagine I'm not the only one wondering who from that region is OK. )
This is a good idea. My prayers and thoughts are for those who were affected by these terrible tornadoes. Thanks.
You have a great idea. As for me and mine, thank God, we are okay. We live in Hamilton, Alabama about 40 minutes east of Tupelo, Mississippi, where the first tornado touched down and did a considerable amount of damage.
Then around 3 p.m., another tornado or two, said the weathermen, were coming straight for us and it was as dark as night--and still as I imagine it will be when time ends.
Even at 10 p.m., cdst, there are still dangerous storms going into Jefferson County, where Birmingham is located and the television stations there are saying that damage will be calculated in the morning, but Tuesday, Tuesday night and Wednesday will be the next rounds.
My heart breaks for the people in Arkansas who lost everything including family and friends.
Let's all join together and remember them in prayer.
And thanks, Lisa, for the wonderful idea.
Great initiative Lisa, I hope all hubbers in those areas are safe, but it would be great if they post here to put us all at ease.
You are a tremendous friend, writer and follower with a heart of gold.
Take care. And God bless.
Thanks for the update Kenneth. I'm glad you and yours are ok, and we'll pray that you stay unaffected. Prayers go out to all those who lost everything in Arkansas too. Stay safe.
The pictures are horrendous. My family was fine last night,
I have family in the south but have not heard from anyone. Hope they are all okay.
My daughter is moving in the next week to that area of Alabama. Thank goodness she hadn't already moved!
I'm sending prayers for all involved in the stormss. I hope everyone is safe.
Praying for all those who are in danger of these tornadoes. Hope that God will send those twisters back up in the sky and leave people and their homes safe and well.
Thanks you all. They seem to have missed us here in my area in central Georgia - at least the area which I am in.

What is one thing you do differently from everyone else? How does it affect you?Do you have an eccentric habit or thing you do that others have noticed? How does this affect you? For me it's how I hold a pen/pencil - when I used to work in a hotel checking people in and writing down info many...

Why do liberals think everyone needs to pay for everyone else.The left constantly berates the Right for not being willing to fund their social pet projects. Why should I be willing to pay for others willingly, when those folks just don't hard enough? Any honest thoughts as to why some feel it is...

We know that we will be better off if we forgive all of those things and and all of those people that have caused us pain....In this thread, ask for or give forgiveness. You don't have to give specific in details if you don't want to.I ask that Christians who have hurt people be forgiven.
