Killing time in small town Alabama

Broken but Upright: Stevenson, Alabama: February 27, 2012

A bare tree broken from a tornado stands against the sunset over a creek with mountains in the background.Broken but Upright

This tree was damaged during the tornado that hit Stevenson during the April 27, 2011 outbreak.  It used to have friends but most of them are gone now:(  This is below the baseball fields, & from here it destroyed two ball fields, part of the park, & then a few homes as it made its way to us & went out.  Thankfully since we live on a hill it jumped us, because people just a few miles from us were not so lucky.  Several people as well as homes were lost in nearby towns & it is still a very difficult thing for me to talk about.  Easily the scariest day of my life.
