My phone rang at the 2:30 this morning. The caller was a family friend telling me to prepare to take cover.
A tornado was on the way.
I was lucky but a lot of other people in Indiana and Kentucky were not. At last count 17 are dead.
I am proud to say the locals were on this immediately. Neighbors helped neighbors.
So far nobody has blamed Bush or FEMA or anyone other than Mother Nature herself.
Considering that this is the midwest and we tend to be a stoic sort who find emotional outbursts to be just so tacky I doubt you will.
