The governor is calling it "serious devastation." It's gotta be a terrifying experience to be in the middle of one of those things, heartbreaking to see all of one's personal effects lost.

I'm not aware of anyone on this board who lives in that Suffolk-Norfolk-Virginia Beach area. Am I overlooking anybody?

I saw some pictures and "serious devastation" is being kind.

umm....anyone heard from Gary or Bill?
Larry posted, so he's ok. He probably tied his house
to his head.
That's what we did in Myrtle a few years ago when a
white squall blew in on us.

Bill and Gary (especially Gary) are pretty far removed from the Tidewater area. I don't think their areas were hit.

That's the meanest thing I've ever heard. I need to remember that.

Seriously. I hope everybody made out OK.

I hate tornados. Give me a hurricane anyday, just let me know
