Yeah, we're good, thanks for the concern not sure if anyone has seen the pictures from the local news station here. Pretty wicked. I still have no internet because the tower went down, finally got 4g back on my cell phone today because that tower got damaged as well hence the hiatus lol there's 40 some families homeless right now. It took the roof off an apartment building

Dozens displaced in Vinton begin search for new homes

Yikes, Matt. Glad you are okay. You said you wouldn't move to Texas because of the tornadoes.

They're everywhere. For the most part naders up this way are little ones.

Side note: I have Verizon so I'm replying via cow.(this won't make sense unless you watch the video in the news link I shared)
