NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Days later survivors in some of the areas hardest by last week's tornados are also dealing with a blanket of snow as they begin to clean up and rebuild what Mother Nature destroyed.
The blanket of white can't hide the dark reality of what happened in Henryville, Indiana.
The splintered wood, shattered glass, and twisted metal still push through the snow.
The soggy and cold conditions have made the cleanup effort a bit more difficult, but when you've lost everything, four or five inches of snow can't really make a difference.
Still, somehow in all of the mess, families are finding important pieces of their lives before the storm.
At least 39 people were killed by dozens of tornados across ten states.
