Sorry to hear about your tree and other plants. We, too, are in an area
where tornadoes are prevalent, though most seem to go about half a mile
south or 6 miles north of here, or high enough above that the neighbor's
cinderblock mailbox post would get creamed but the houses would be spared.
I remember a string of years where nearly every spring plant was stripped of
its blooms or knocked over. Or hail would come and pound/shred everything
into little strips.

Better things/weather will come. Just hang in there.
