Hopes and Prayers

My thoughts and prayers are with my friends and family back home this morning. Mom and I watched Ned Perme and crew last night over the Internet as the storm cells continued pounding the central Arkansas area (be sure and hit the jump for KTHV's story with some amazing accompanying pictures of the aftermath).

It is hard to fathom so much rain that I-30 has been closed in places due to flooding. And the damage between Alcoa Road and Reynolds Road sounds prolific (but fortunately, it doesn't sound as though the Chick-fil-A at Bryant was touched...thank goodness!)

Between the tornadoes and the flooding, it has been an unforgettable spring for Arkansans. Here's hoping and praying all of you back home are safe and protected this morning.
