March Photo Challenge: Day 8

Prompt: Heal

About this photo: Just a quick post today. This was taken last Friday, just minutes after terrible tornado producing storms ripped across Kentucky. Fortunately our area was spared, but others were not so lucky. Having spent the bulk of my life in Alabama, I am all to familiar with tornadoes and the destruction they can leave behind. It never ceases to amaze me, though, how the landscape always rebuilds and heals. People rebuild homes and businesses, animals rebuild their nests and mother nature repairs the landscape. It is awe inspiring. Entire communities can rebuild in the wake of a storm, surely we can rebuild in the wake of infertility.

As a side note: the sky was really lit up this way post storm. The only photo editing done on this was a quick Unsharp Mask and then the layering of the Photo Challenge graphic. It was one of the most awesome skies I have seen since my honey moon in Costa Rica!

Check out these other awesome bloggers and see how they portrayed today’s prompt of Healing!

    My husband is from Alabama and we lived there for 4 years together up until last year when we started moving for his job. We were there last year during the storms and 3 of his family members that all live on the same road lost their houses. His grandparents (the house he gre up in) his dad, stepmom & their 2 kids, and his great uncle.

    Hi grandparents and great uncle were both in their houses and survived. The living room collapsed on his great uncle (who is on blood thinners) and he had to crawl out. But not one person or outside animal was hurt. It was incredible.

    We called them the night of and hearing them say “everything’s gone”…we thought it was a joke. Definitely not. We went the next day to help clean up and I found photos of myself and my DH from his old room scattered in the mess. It was surreal.

    His grandparents just moved into the house they rebuilt and now the storms are back. Luckily, they decided to build a basement complete with safe room made of 3′ thick concrete :).

      Oh my gosh how scary! I’m glad to hear they all made it out safely. Those storms last year really affected me. Storms hit every city I used to live in – Tuscaloosa, Huntsville and Birmingham. Fortunately no one I knew was injured. It’s always nice to connect with another fellow Alabamian 🙂

        yeah! we lived in Hoover for 4 years while he went to UAB. I went to Samford for a year and then did ultrasound at Virginia College. He is from Gadsden.

    It is amazing how beautiful the skies can be after such powerful forces of nature happen. It gives hope.

    Oh I love the sky before and after storms. It’s so amazing. I’ve only been through one tornado and the sky went GREEN. Afterwards I don’t remember what the sky looked like, it was later in the evening so I don’t know if it looked like anything. (The tornado happened when i was living in Chicago – like IN Chicago. They hadn’t seen a tornado in the city in a long time and it happened right after I moved there. The only reason I knew what to do was because as a kid I used to watch TV shows about people who survived crazy things like tornadoes, hurricanes, earth quakes, etc!)
