Sad news from south Alabama...

I guess most of you heard about another round of tornadoes that swept through Alabama this past weekend. This morning I learned that fellow bloggers Randy and Jaime at Creating our Eden was in the path of an F3 tornado. They were not hurt and their home is okay but many homes in their neighborhood, as well as their garden, was destroyed. You can read his post here. My thoughts are with them during this difficult time.

  1. That is sad. I'm from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and know how devastating they can be.

  2. I hadn't heard about this batch of tornadoes (we don't get all the US news unless we watch CNN, of course). I'm so sorry...just grateful that they weren't hurt. I wish I lived closer, so I could come help them have a garden cleanup/work bee!

  3. Sorry to hear about the damage in south Alabama. Bad weather has jerked us around here in Mississippi off and on for several weeks. Yesterday was very nasty, and we got nearly 2 inches of rain. Jon in Vicksburg, Miss.

  4. Phillip,
    Thanks so much for the words of encouragement. It's just frustrating for us. We will bounce back. :-)

  5. Dear Phillip, I am happy that your friends were spared heartbreak. I also wrote about my family's sad plight with recent tornadoes in Tennessee. Don't know if you have time or interest to take a look, but here is the link http://astimegoesbye.blogspot.com/2006/01/february.html

    I discovered your blog and web site today when Googling winter honeysuckle. I will be spending time here. Your blog and web site are most attractive with a very professional appearance. I look forward to many visits.

  8. I just read his entries---very sad. How devastating a tornado like that would be. We're in tornado country too, and they are scary.

  9. Thanks for telling us about your fellow Alabama gardeners, Phillip...we're all at the mercy of weather, but tornadoes are so sudden.
    I hope your friends can eventually remake their garden and find themselves once again in the Emerald City!

  10. I must admit we worry about tornadoes hitting us they are not as prevalent as Alabama and other areas but had never thought about the effect to our garden as well as home

    Thoughts are with them and glad they are OK
