My folks from Mississippi

I just spoke with my mom and stepdad. They live in the East Central part of Mississippi – Meridian. The entire city is without power and could be that way for another two weeks.

Thankfully, my folks are just fine. They had trees falling all around them, but none hitting the house. My brother-in-law, on the other hand, had 4 trees hit his house. My mom said that its’ the worst thing she’s ever seen hit that city – and its’soooo much worse on the coast of Mississippi.

Rob, I didn't know you had family in Mississippi. I grew up in Natchez and graduated from the University of Mississippi. Did you grow up in the state?
I lived in Meridian for 14 years. I graduated from Mississippi State in 1995.
Always good to know another Mississippian, Rob. And you are a youngster . . . I graduated UM in 1990 and served on the faculty there from 1997-2000. I'm now over at Birmingham at UAB. Let me know if you are ever near here, I'll take you to lunch.
