    Looking at most of what he passed made us in this mess and he would get stuff passed and would not have a payment plan. I guess those rich white boys go shopping and never have to pick up the tab, daddy does.

    K. I am glad to see you were spared from the tornato. We have had rain, but no tornatos this year. The one last year hit a subdivision over. Everything on the street except a couple of houses still standing but damaged. It was less than 1/4 of a mile from my house. I walked there the next morning, it was a shocker to see, total devistation. You would see a little mermaid disc here and a bike here, just bits of people lives everywhere.

    Tornados are NOT an average thing in michigan so i was amazed there were NO serious injuries, let alone no deaths. We do have a wonderful weather crew on our local tv station though. And they deserve so much credit for how well this turned out!

      @chrissy, I am glad to hear you are okay. Up here in the Rockies we had freezing temperatures and plenty of snow. I've been housebound with a broken hand and arm. At least now I can key on my phone. I spoke with the real @Dazzle tonight and she told me about this idiot fake dazzle. She was laughing so hard,she could barely speak. When I read this I laughed too. You are all good people for recognizing this wasn't her. To know her is to love her and this fake is instantly unlikeable. Southern hospitality in the Delta, please kill me now.
