Alabama Tornadoes – April 27, 2011

North Alabama was hit hard by several tornadoes last Wednesday. The good news is Jack & Barbara Phillips are unscathed. The bad news is the damage is all around us and six people are confirmed dead in Arab just two miles from our home with many more killed around the state. Electric power was out for over five days from 2:45 pm Wednesday to 6:05 pm Monday, May 2.

Jack Phillips at a Reunion

Last week Jack attended a great reunion of his 1961 Officer Candidate School (OCS) class. Just to show some things don't change that much he showed up at one of the get-togethers in the same t-shirt he wore 47 years ago. Silly, but fun. Most of the guys would not have fit into theirs, even if they could find them.
