Christmas 2015 and MS Tornadoes
Tornadoes traveled northeast clocking winds in excess of 150 miles an hour. I55 was closed between Batesville and Como after multiple truck accidents.
Holly Springs was ravaged the worst before the storm tore into Tennessee. Topped trees look like tall pencils. A car was trapped under a twisted tractor trailer and the occupants were found alive.
The death toll rises. It could take weeks logging damages. It put a pall on Christmas, but there were miracles, too. Three people left their house and piled into their truck. Before they could get away, it blew the truck into a tree saving their lives; the house was destroyed. Many homes were wiped off their foundation. Victims concurred the tornado sounded like a raging freight train.

Wed. evening I watched I Love Lucy reruns I haven't seen since 9/11. They provide light moments that shore us up for coping with life's monsters. Speaking of monsters, I do not hate those who hate us. Hating makes a negative mark on the hater's soul. Peace cannot live there. Loving creates a positive mark on the soul.
Peace and Grace to all and to all a Good Night. May your Christmas be Merry and the New Year super!
