We had an EF-1 touch down 1/4 mile from us. Had it been one of the 1/2 mile wide EF-4/5 monsters they are reporting struck all around us, well our house wouldn't be here. Our power came up late Sunday night, internet yesterday afternoon.
A little disappointed in AT&T. When the power went out (and mind you it was pretty catastrophic the damage done to TVA's transmission towers) my wife and daughter still had service through Verizon (no 3G, but cell still worked). AT&T went dark - completely.
