    Good. We were worried. It's hard to tell on radar.
  2. Talked to my pop last night, he is in Loma Linda about 4 miles south. He's fine but understandably shaken. Thanks for those that called and PM'd with your concern... Prayers and positive thoughts for Joplin and the good people that live there.
  3. I'm about 70 miles south east of Joplin and can't believe how bad this storm was. There was the sound of constant thunder and lightning for about 2 hours. When the storm was moving you could hear about the path it was taking and you would immediately think about all the HAMB brothers and sisters that lived in the area it was headed toward. Tornado alley is a scary place to live. Our prayers go out to all affected. Keep us posted.
  4. glad to hear your alright too hopefully see you this saturday

    Wondering the same, His house is so near to The path, just east of St.John's Hospital.
    His GF lives just a block from me, I will hobble to her house as soon as the rain quits. Will let you know.
    His house and shop are on opposite ends of Joplin, but both near the path.

    Prayers sent to everyone in and around Joplin area.
    The storms rolled thru Missouri all along the same path. We had storm after storm following each other. Alert more storms today expected and the next few days too.
    Thanks to the Hamb and everyone checking in on each other and wanting to help and getting word to members, friends and family.

    Anybody know about Chuck Comer? He's not a HAMBer, but he's a regular at the Drags. Has a huge collection of cars, and may have been in the path.
  14. We used to have HAM Radio, no all we need is the HAMB. Stay safe guys.

    All, brother (WZ JUNK) and family are fine. WZ lives about 15 miles south of Joplin but another huge tornado went south of them. John's son and daughter-in-law live in Joplin but they text'd that they were o.k. It's really bad over there. I live about 180 miles east on I-44. Folks from my area are going over to help. They are calling for doctors, nurses and firefighters. I-44 was closed due to the amount of vehicles blown over. Sam

    Denise brought up a great idea: DONATE BLOOD. I'm gonna see if I'm eligible again to do so.

    Looking for Sue, Jim or Brooksie Sterrett---Sue lives on Virgina, Brooskie lives on Monroe, I think Jim is on Illinois. If anyone can tell me I would be so appreciative, I'm up in Chicago and can't get thru.
