Thanks for sharing Sally K. & David L. Hanson . A family member could not land in Dallas last night do to tornado warnings and hail warnings. Here in Arizona no tornados, but we do have monsoons in July and August

Great list for everyone to print out and start filling Sally K. & David L. Hanson . Hopefully NO ONE will need to use it. BTW the choosing a room link is not working.
