Well, quite a first week of marriage.... 

If you hadn't heard about my hometown, 
it was hit by a F-4 or F-5 tornado last Wednesday.

I have never seen so much destruction
in all of my years and after a similar tornado
in December, 2000. 

Our midtown area was almost completely destroyed
except for the new shopping center. 

Many lives, homes, apartments, businesses, etc. were 
destroyed in a 10 minute window
from something we didn't even see coming. 

On Friday, after many relief efforts were 
begun, President Obama
visited our town to survey the damage. 

President Barack Obama and Tuscaloosa, Ala. Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Kevin Burgess tour tornado damage in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Friday, April 29, 2011.

Many churches and organizations
have completely astounded the residents of
Tuscaloosa and surrounding areas with their support
and contributions. 

Today, Tuscaloosa had another surprise guest:

Yep. No joke. 

Hopefully, his appearance will spurn some sort of outside
effort from other like-minded celebrities. 

We'll see.
