Listening to NPR this morning, they were interviewing this guy who lived with his wife and foster children across from one of the schools that got hit hard. He woke up just as the cone was forming, and ran to take refuge in the school.
Their house was completely flattened, but they're all safe.
But all I could think of was that those 5 foster kids are almost certainly going to be taken away from that couple now (no home and all). And it sounds, from the way they and the kids were talking, that they were one of the foster families that actually gave a **** about the kids in their care. They had five, apparently, but it sounded like at least some of them were related. And keeping siblings together in the foster system is rare. Sucks.
Anyways, you all are horrible, @#%^ed up people
Never underestimate the healing power of a massive dong.
