Yeah, we are over by Mallard. The West Bend spotters saw the thing south of WB on the ground. I don't know how far south of town they were though.
Anyway, the point of my post (my gosh, I'm rambling, I must be getting old) - is to say how in awe I am of our LEOs and firefighters who go out into the worst weather to keep an eye out for us.
Here's some more stories about Sheriff's Deputy Robert Jolley.
Yeah the fire and first responders really stepped up, as well as national guard and general citizens. That night, I heard on my hubby's pager our dispatch talking to county fire guys. They were there searching all houses, house to house to make sure all were accounted for. By around 10:00 that night, they had made sure everyone was ok. These guys and gals around here are ALL volunteers too, by the way!
