Just before the tornado passed over where my kids live, (son, d-i-l and grandson), it lifted off the ground. My avatar pic is how it looked as it passed by Trussville, AL I59 exit 141. This massive monster was a mile and a half wide when it hit Birmingham and came back down on the ground shortly after this picture was taken, continuing its destruction. I've never seen so much devastation from one storm system. The recovery will take a long time. I'm so very thankful it missed my family and doing what I can to help out survivors in the state.
