The rain will transition over to snow as we head into mid to late morning across the area. We will see the chances for light accumulation in the valley areas with 1-3" possible on the ridge tops above 2000 feet. Slick spots are possible on untreated roads. While significant snow is not expected, we have issued a Severe Weather Alert Day to keep you informed on possible negative impacts to travel through Tuesday afternoon.
Even though the buildings lie in ruin, the congregations that made them churches gathered in an auditorium turned sanctuary to worship.
"Some of us lost homes. Most of you all who are seated here today, you lost your worship halls, your church buildings," said one church leader.
"Many of you have went through it, and were spared. And it causes us to realize how thankful we need to be."
So they sang and listened to words of encouragement from the various church leaders.
"It's a wreck. It's a mess, but He makes us whole and we will be made whole."
Throughout the service, the unified congregation embraced, shed tears, and even shared laughs.
"Amidst that disaster, the mess my office was...if you'd seen my office before the tornado, you know it's probably an improvement. Amen."
And as the group looks at the challenges ahead, they do so as a single unit, bound by faith and the love they have for each other.
