I hope every is safe and doing well in the Midwest after what happened Sunday.

Luckily my family and myself and homes are all fine. I had a friend who wasn't so lucky. Took out his attached and detached garage. Luckily he is fine.

We had another friend who was in his truck with his son on his way back from a motocross track and they got caught right in the middle of it. Flipped his truck and toy hauler with them in it. They are both ok just a little sore and still shaken up.

We spent Sunday evening and all day Monday helping clean up and trying to salvage what we could. My home town is pretty beat up. I ask people pray for those affected by the devastation.

Here is a link to some aerial footage of the town.

got pics from the industrial complex in Lebanon Indiana where we have another warehouse. missed our building by 2/10 of a mile but some of the other pics were amazing. glass shattered and 53ft trailers tossed around like toys..

glad to hear the death toll wasn't worse.. lots of rebuilding to come so here's to the snow flying late to allow everyone to get their bearings before the ground turns white.

Glad to hear you are ok and those you know. It's rough going through that, we went through Hurricane Sandy last year. I hope you all get back to normal soon, it will take awhile but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Talked to a friend in Kokomo, IN. He and his family are fine. Nothing but minor damage but his neighbor's house is gone. Prayers lifted for victims and their families.

Glad to hear he and his family are good. Who is he? I was born and raised in Kokomo. There is a possibility I know him.

So has FEMA come out with the free big ticket ATM cards?

FEMA cleaned my property and that was about it. I say that was about it but it would have cost about $10,000 to have it cleaned up so I guess that was a bargain. If you have insurance you're pretty much on your own. Glad to hear that nobody has been hurt.
