Storms rumbled through the south again yesterday but this time the most severe of the storms were across the river in TN and MS. The death toll just keeps climbing in TN from the tornado strikes. I've lived most of my life in this part of the south and on several occasions I've within a quarter of a mile of where a tornado touched down but I've never actually seen one because we normally have so much rainfall during these bad storms that they're difficult to see unless one forms during the daylight hours before the rain begins. If I ever see one of those, I'll be sure to take a photo of it before I head for a safe hidey-hole. Since we also live in a rural area, there isn't as much damage to homes and lives as there is in the cities and towns.
