A young artist friend lives near Morgan County and was greatly affected by the 3/2/2012 tornado. She and I met this fall because of our shared love of photography, so I asked her if I could use one of her photos on this blog. She chose this one and included an explanation of it. Thanks so much, Bobbie.

I also want to share some other tornado photos in the form of a slide show (click HERE) made by John Flavell, a longtime photo journalist and my friend, who showed up in West Liberty the same evening of the tornado. He returned on Saturday, and again on Monday, as can be seen by the cover of snow over everything. And perhaps other times as well. Photos by the Lexington Herald-Leader are available at www.Kentucky.com, if you have time to search them out. I know there has been a lot of coverage on TV, but both Bobbie and John are nearby. Bobbie grew up in West Liberty, but currently lives in Elliott County, a mile from the Morgan County line. (Around here that's how we give a sense of someone's place.)
