A few years ago I was traveling all around the southeastern part of the United States. I love that part of our country. One thing they do well there is play some great music and cook great food. Music has always been my first love, but food is a close second. I mean Nashville is the country music capital! I have played there many times in the past and I always love going there. I have many great memories in Tennessee. That one spring I was in the Birmingham area visiting a good buddy of mine. He actually lives in Hoover which is just outside of Birmingham city limits.
I spent a week there in his little one room apartment. It was great! We would go to downtown and just play music every night of the week while I was there. I loved it too because I was making some pretty good money. Actually my stay lasted a little longer than I expected it too. I was in town for one of their bad tornados. Well, his apartment got hammered. That night we had to go to the basement of the complex and sleep. I have to admit it was one of the scariest moments in my life. That night I will never forget.
The storm was scary, but the aftermath of it was horrible too. He had so much water damage at his place. He was in need of some water damage restoration. If he did not find a water damage company, all his valuables would be destroyed. I was lucky because my little bag of stuff I took with me in the basement. He was worried about all his stuff and also mold damage. He just had a plate full that week. He did find a water damage company near his place. They did great work at his apartment. He said that nothing was destroyed and he did not have any mold around. I know that I was happy it was not me in his situation. I do not know how I would have acted with all that going on.
