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

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.

This is the boat dock at the Stevenson City Park & Mud Creek.  I have no idea who those people are, but they seem to be enjoying themselves.
