Wednesday night I had my first tornado in Tennessee. I really liked living here previously because the mountains usually kill any severe thunderstorms that move across here. As you remember, in North Alabama I had my fair share of deadly tornadoes. The one that hit near Greenback, TN was massive. EF-3, 160 miles in hour winds, and left more than 4 miles worth of damage. It threw cars around like they were toys. The miracle of the whole thing . . . no one died. Several homes were flattened, but the families were gone for some reason or another. Everyone was really blessed here. I just hope this is the last tornado I have to experience in Tennessee.
