    My mom lives there, but thankfully the worst of the storm passed just north of her neighborhood. Horrible thing to have happen to a small town! Prayers for all in the nation being affected by these storms.

    I hate that when my roof decides to take a road trip!

    Little harsh by the local authorities. A version of Marshall law sounds like.

      There were so many people going out to look at damage that emergency vehicles and utility crews couldn’t get to scenes. I don’t think they’re messing with people unless they’re getting in the way.

    Last month they had the annual Vietnam Veteran get together there.

    How long until the left starts declaring “‘red-staters’ deserve this for being pro-small government”? I’m sure it already started on twitter hours ago.

    Because, you know, throwing endless millions at the federal government to stop “global climate change” sure works well. I mean, all weather patterns, and the environment, respond positively to money flowing into DC. Especially when DC isn’t required to tell anyone where the money’s going.

      Dude..take your pills. Nut.

        Really? That’s what you came onto this website to say. Do a search on twitter…people actually say this stuff. Perhaps you’re a little too empty-headed to understand that and my comment as a whole?
