I just found out that TopAlarmSystem.com is implementing a wonderful program that will allow bloggers to assist in the recovery efforts from the recent severe weather. For every 400+ word blog post written about the disaster or the tornado outbreak of 2011, $25 will be donated to the Christian Service Mission in Birmingham, AL.
I remember being in the Enterprise Walmart with my mother within a month of the March 1st tornado when the sirens went off. All of us shoppers and the employees were quickly herded to the center of the store where it was supposedly safer. We could see through the doors that it was rapidly getting as dark as night outside, heavy rain was beginning to fall, lightning was flashing, and I think we even saw a couple of police cars race down the highway with their sirens on. We were positive that another twister was hitting, and that we were all in one of the worst possible places to be. After many tense minutes, we were finally informed that it was just rotation and an actual tornado had not formed.
