Sunday Thought: The Groundhog Day Storm, 2007

That's what they're calling it. The storm came through a few nights ago in the wee hours. I guess a lot of those people were awakened by the trump of doom, and others probably never woke up at all. Now I lay me down to sleep... 20 are now dead. A few of the sights:























The Lady Lake Church of God:














A couple of the victims:

Danny Dowling, 15, one of three triplets. His sisters survived. His Mom and Dad perished



Brittany May, 17. She wanted "to become a doctor or nurse specializing in pediatrics":


A complete photo gallery from Lake and Volusia counties can be found in the margin on this page.

The path of destruction was a few miles north of here. But the weird weather woke me up. I recognized the sound and feel of it from a tornado storm that tore through Gainesville back in the 80's. You never forget it, but it's hard to describe.
