  • I just want to say thank you to all Toomer's for Tuscaloosa! I move...d to Alabama in late 2010 and started following your page after the tornadoes in 2011. I admired the network you created and the message of love and all the help you sent to those in need at that time. I am amazed and thankful that you continue to bring awareness when bad weather is upon us. You have been my number one source for weather info since the page was created. My prayer is that you will be hugely blessed for all your efforts. <3 See More

Crews from NC headed southbound on 20/59. Huge convoy pulled onto the shoulder. Say a quick prayer that the two trucks having trouble get back on the road soon. These folks have work to do! All of the utility workers in affected areas work long hours away from their spouse and babies. They are ALL IN to clear roads and get utilities back on. If you see them headed in, honk the horn....if you're near the work sites - take them a cold drink, a hot plate and some sunscreen. Will never forget the NC tree crews in Tuscaloosa who hugged me over deodorant and bug spray. #Isaac #Louisiana #Landmass #NorthCarolina #TownsendTreeService #theyworkhardforthemoney -M

Most people in Alabama, AND across the nation, can't find their location on a map. This, needless to say, presents a major problem for those of us trying to com...municate critical weather information during high impact events like tornadoes and winter storms. Good read on the subject here: http://www.al.com/…/…/02/many_alabamians_cant_find_them.html

Friends I am writing today to share with you something that has broken my heart. My very precious friends mother lost everything in a house fire. She had recently canceled her home owners insurance policy to save money after having to be out of work for double knee surgery. You can imagine the devastation. If you have $1 or $5 could you please share it with them. Katelyn, my friend, works full time at the happiest place on earth making magic for others so their happiest dreams come true, can you join me in helping give some magic to her family?

*****THIS POST IS OUTDATED*****

We've been analyzing the latest forecast data in terms of severe weather potential for this evening and tonight. Scattered stro...ng to isolated severe storms will be possible for all of Central Alabama. The isolated severe storms will be capable of damaging winds up to 60mph, large hail, and perhaps a tornado. We'll be watching the latest trends through this afternoon, but current forecast timing is between 6pm to 1am tonight as a cold front moves across Central Alabama.
