2011 Joplin Missouri Tornado

I’m going to take an “HSS Timeout”… You’ve probably seen photos like the ones below…

Odds are that you’ve never seen a twister, but I have. I can tell you straight up that the experience was one of helpless and hollowness. I was stuck in a traffic jam, and there was no place to go. It was literally a crap shoot as to which way the tornado would move.

This isn’t just about lost lives, broken bodies, demolished homes and businesses… No one who encounters a tornado is ever quite the same again…

To help, the American Red Cross is always a good starting point…

Cisco the blogging cat…
