This is Just to Say...

... that we survived without any tornados on campus - in fact campus is just fine - but the rest of the state isn't looking so hot.  South Jackson experienced some pretty bad flooding; Nashville seems to be pretty well completely underwater; and lots of the little towns got hit really badly.  Travel is difficult due to roads either still underwater or completely washed away; bridges are out, there are sinkholes everywhere, and fields now look like small lakes.  We are fortunate to have escaped so lightly on campus - other than two nights of interrupted sleep, and some minor electrical damage from a lightning strike, we've sustained no damage.  But I know the rest of the state would appreciate prayers; for the waters to recede, and for repairs to be swift.
