    Snow in Alabama in March! The daffodils have already bloomed, and the Bradford pears will be blooming in about two weeks.

    Absolute devastation in my community. Massive violent tornado hit the metro and absolutely brought with it every worst case scenario. Please pray for the people of Oklahoma. A truly sad and tragic day.

    Dear Wannabee, I am sitting in an airport right now watching the coverage. Truly tragic. Many many prayers coming your way.

    Hi everyone. On behalf of my community, I would like to ask any of my fellow DF'ers to consider donating to the Red Cross or similar relief agencies to aid us as we try to literally pick up the pieces and put our lives back together, at least those of us who are fortunate enough to still have our lives. Many lives were lost and a few will be burying their children in the days to come. I am still overwhelmed and so so thankful that some bystanders pulled my niece and 4 of her coworkers to safety yesterday and that it missed her daughter's daycare by 5 blocks. Amazingly, considering how many friends and family live within a few miles of where the tornado hit, all are alive and accounted for. Homes and belongings didn't fair as well, but those are replaceable.

    We are no strangers to tornadoes around here but sometimes, even us weathered folk, realize there is just no way to completely prepare for something this massive and powerful. Thanks for the continued thoughts and prayers.

    So sorry to hear, Wannabee. I'm relieved to hear your own circle is safe. Such a tragedy.

    I will be sure to send my thoughts and prayers for Oklahoma, Wannabee. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there a word you can text to a certain address to add ten dollars to the Red Cross, or something similar?

    Supremely cold, I dare say the winter I spent working in Alaska was a touch more friendly (weather wise) than what we've got in Chicago today through this week. I hope everyone in the area is staying warm!
