I live in Joplin, Missouri. Lots of business, shops and restaurants. I don't think I'll ever move back to MA.I literally read this yesterday, the day before today's terrible tornado struck down. According to CNN and the local paper, the scale of the damage is massive. Potentially more than half the town was destroyed or severely damaged, including its hospital, high school and middle school and huge areas of its business district.
Thankfully, my friend and her family is okay, but I know many others there won't be. I guess we should all feel a little lucky today, and a little sad.
