  3. My daughter and family are dodging them in Birmingham, AL. They all go into a BIG closet with their phones and computers and snacks. I don't which is worse, tornados or my Florida hurricanes. They are both frightening.

    They will all be safe. Fruma in Yiddish means standing next to G-d! So I spoke to her...LOL

  11. Wow, Beth, that's awesome!! As Sharon said, be sure to keep us updated on how it goes. And I didn't hear about Chattanooga getting hit too badly by the storms (although it's a little out of my viewing area) so I'm hoping she's doing ok. Nashville didn't do too badly - most of the worst hit just south of us. Birmingham got hit bad, and my sister and her kids are there, but they're safe so far.
