Tornado Recovery 1

I have used Boomer in some comics in the past. My grandson is the model for Boomer who turns 10 next week. Recently my daughter's home was destroyed by a tornado. Thankfully her husband was at work and she an my grandson were out of town with my wife and I. I am going to use the weekends for a couple of weeks to depict torndo recovery through the eyes of a 10 year old boy who has lost the only home he has ever lived in.


  1. Sorry to hear about your daughter's plight, Bo. I wish her luck on getting things back together.

  2. Bo, I came hear to laugh---You just bummed me out a little =)

    Glad to see everyone is safe and sound---good luck sir...

  3. That's too bad, Bo. My wife and I recently had a scare along those lines. A tornado touched down a few miles away from where we spent a weekend. We weren't hit, thankfully, but high winds came through our area and knocked over a healthy 70 foot tall tree. Fortunately it fell away from the house, but if it hadn't we would have been in trouble.

  4. I'm so sorry to hear about their misfortune. Life sure can deal some tough blows at times. Glad none of your family were home at the time or the outcome may have been a lot worse.

  5. I'm very sorry to hear that, Bo. Having never been through such an experience I can never really know how it feels, but I know it would be absolutely devastating. Please give your family my best, sir!

    I think that sharing these experiences with us is a great thing to do, Bo. Very powerful - really does make you stop to think about things.
