tornado-from-jack-anderson.jpg It was  a year ago today that a tornado came through my town and on through the county.  This picture here was taken from the front of #2’s elementary school, a couple miles away.  My other two kids were in the thick of it at their middle school which is about where that funnel cloud was when this picture was taken.  A little too close for comfort. 

9 people in Gallatin died that day. Amy Hawkins, who lives about a mile from me, was paralyzed shielding her small children.  2 children in #2’s class lost their homes.  It was a humbling day.
