Here are some photos I took from the boat while we were at the lake. I urge you to click on each photo to see up close and personal.
I see a toaster in the remains of this house.
And a truck was tossed like it was a toy. We were told to be careful while boating because of all the debris under the water: cars, appliances, and who knows what.
Here's a mattress skewered on a tree.
And check out the blue recliner left sitting in the devastation.
I knew there was damage around the lake, and I knew some people here were killed. But until I saw it for myself, I had no idea how widespread the destruction here was. For those not familiar with this area, it's about 85 miles south of Birmingham, one of many areas in Alabama devastated by the tornado damage of April 27.
