It’s a little gloomy in in our neck of the woods this morning. Southwest Georgia got hit hard yesterday by a tornado and our neighbors across the state line in Alabama lost at least 2 dozen people with more expected as first responders are able to clear debris this morning. Living in a border community, it feels less like another state and more like another subdivision or neighborhood. We are so grateful for our first responders and weather folks who saved innumerable lives yesterday with their fast response and up-to-date information. Our hearts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones. We can rebuild homes, but the loss of human life leaves a void that can’t be filled.
