    OK, you haven't been up in the air and it wasn't your house that was hit it was your parents'.

    Good call, NWS! From the air you can see the narrow path of destruction that winds from field to field, unfortunately including a lot of my neighbors' property. My family spent a lot of Wednesday helping the neighbors repair--and in some cases, find--property.
