Rough Day and Night

This morning, the trusty rain gauge in the backyard measured 4.1 inches of rain from yesterday's storms. That's by far the most rain we've had in one day since we moved in. Fortunately that was the worst of things at our house. Listening to the weatherfolks on TV, and the sheriff's department on the scanner, it sounded as though the world was ending. But nothing at the house but lots and lots of wet.

The situation was so much worse at the high school in Enterprise, Alabama that was hit by the tornado. And in Americus, where a hospital was pounded by one. And in Baker County, in southwest Georgia, where six people were killed.
