Yesterday North Carolina saw widespread devastation as tornadoes barrelled across the state. We heeded warnings and huddled in the safest place in the house. The wind blew and rain fell hard, and when it was over we were able to go outside and splash in the puddles. Not so for many others. Areas to the north, east, south and west of us saw heartbreaking damage from the storms. My heart breaks for my fellow North Carolinians this morning. Life was lost and homes destroyed.
For the safety of my family and the roof over my head, I am immensely grateful this morning.
