Will We Be Ignored?
The President is rightly in Ababama survey storm damage today-I just hope the feds don't ignore us like they often do:
How bad was the storm damage in East Tennessee? It has been bad enough that Governor Bill Haslam canceled a scheduled event in West Tennessee to visit storm-ravaged places in this part of the State. An apparent tornado ripped the roof off of the gym at Cocke County High School, and essentially destroyed the Adult High School. People still seem to be in shock that the storms were so severe, since the mountains very often break up the worst storm systems that might blow through the area. This writer detailed some of the damage to his own home yesterday, but in fairness there are many people, especially in neighboring Cocke County, who have had to deal with much worse.
