RAINSVILLE, AL - On a recent trip to Rainsville, AL with a group from Georgia delivering relief supplies I decided to venture out to the area that was hit hard by an EF4 tornado on April 27. I met a gentleman named Jack who had lost his home and was out raking up some debris. His friendly demeanor and positive attitude in spite of all that he had lost was something I have seen repeatedly with the folks I have met across Alabama. As I was interviewing he and his brother in law Harold, he told this hilarious story. Use the share buttons below to share this story with others on Facebook and Twitter!

He started stormHOPE.org following the April 27, 2011 tornados that ravaged Alabama and the southeastern United States with the hopes of capturing the amazing stories and using them to raise awareness of the continuing needs of the people affected around the country. Following the May 22 and 24th tornado outbreaks in the midwest stormHOPE has been actively involved in assisting with relief efforts there through its website and volunteers on the ground.
