The Tuscaloosa Disaster
I have been moved by how many people have written to express concern. We are safe and family and friends (thus far) are safe and accounted for. Allthough Northport (where we live) was in the original path, it was by-passed entirely at the last minute. The Univeristy of Alabama campus was also spared though much nearby student housing was deciminated. Parts of 15th Street (a main drag through town) and the Tuscloosa community of Alberta look like post-war Tokyo or Berlin. At the same time, it is inspiring to see the outpouring of volunteers and donations.
