Tomato Trauma!

OMG.

Today's 4 o'clock rainshower have taken out my beautiful Stripey Tomato! Here's a picture of my beautiful fruit this morning:

Well, I was JUST contemplating how to make a cage for it, pruned off some lower stems and noticed the storms approaching. The wind was blowing so hard that Allen and I heard a loud "CRACK" from outside. When we looked out the window we saw that the tomato had collapsed!
It snapped at the base so I'm going to try a couple things to salvage my dear Mr. Stripey (I'm so attached!)
First I'll make a clean cut on the stem and hope a new sprout begins. Then I'll take the top half and put it in soil - maybe with luck and attention it will grow some new roots.
I'm so sad :(

Poor tomato plant. Hopefully your tlc will revive it.
