I was in Tupelo, MS on Monday for business, as I have been on the road since Sunday visiting Alabama & Mississippi and just got back home this afternoon.
As you guys know by now, Tornadoes ripped thru Mississippi, Tupelo being one of the locations. The hotel room that I was suppose to stay in took major damage. The only reason I was not in the hotel was I had a headache because I had not ate since breakfast. I went to grab something to eat and something for my headache.
As I was getting ready to leave, a customer came in and said it coming in regards to the tornadoes. We ended up going into the beer freezer for 15-20 minutes. Only less than a 1/4 mile down from that gas station, my hotel and other hotels and business and vehicles were hit. I am not good a posting pictures, or I would post the pictures that I have on my phone and are on my Facebook page.
My prayers go out to the families that are homeless and that lost loved ones. Quite simply, it was not my time, and I am thankful.
I am SOOO looking forward to this draft now. Thankful to get to enjoy another NFL Draft.
When I first saw your topic title I had quite the puzzled look on my face. After reading this I'm really glad to hear you are okay and that you gave us all a good sense of perspective about things in life.
