Lots of people hurting. This is far from the worst of it. These are the fortunate ones. Help if you can, anyway you can. First picture sent from a homeowner. Second one I took - miles and miles of this stuff. 'Gonna take 2 years plus to get back to any resemblance of normal.

Man I haven't heard of Delaware Punch in ages. Gonna have to look for some at the store. Yes, it's very bad down there. I have friends and family in the area. Fortunately, they are all ok but the folks down there need all the assistance they can get.

No, 5 of us from our church went over Sunday to help for 3 days. Drove home yesterday. Threw furniture out of a mobile home the first day, so it could be pulled off. Tore sheetrock and paneling out of a house Tuesday. Stapled in insulation and hung drywall all day Wednesday at a different house. One of our 5 was one of our pastors, so he tried to minister to the folks a little. They look like they're ok on the outside, but they break down pretty quick when they think about how far they have to go. Lots of prayers needed.

Its sad, That's folks live on the curb. Pictures, clothes, every thing. I have seen the same thing after Katrina, Reta, Gustoff, Ike, and more tornados that I can count.
I never get use to seeing it.
