Did ya' hear we done had a fury of tornadoes round heah?
Hoo-whee, iffin' ya's watchin' the news, you heered o' the trouble. Thank the mercy of heaven Aunty Belle and Uncle is OK....but 19 folks died from the screechin' banshees that tore through here last night.
'Bout 4:30 I'se waked by a funny air--ya know what I mean?
It had been warm, so we had windows open--
and the air was sorta odd...and still,
when before you could identify it in yore mind,
a hellish, shrieking monster
slashed over us, and then the night
opened its maw and torrents fell like niagra falls--
ya could not see four inches fro your face,
fer the sheeting rain....
But we's been spared the horror of the little towns 25 miles uo from us. Say a little prayer for these poor souls who lost ever'thang.
Hope all of ya'll is well, and safe.
