Tornado season is here


Last night we thought the worst part of the storms was going to miss us. Then the sirens went off. I took the boys into the bathroom while hubby watched the weather. The sirens silenced so I thought we were in the clear. I was on the phone with my sister when she said she thought she saw a tornado. Hubby and I walked outside. We saw it briefly then it went back into the clouds. Back into the bathroom we went.

We are all ok but there was a little bit of damage. (even from such a weak tornado) I am not sure if there was more than one or if everyone in our town had seen the same one. But here are a few videos and pictures from some friends in the area.

  8. Ok, I know this is going to sound C-RAZZYY, but I just LOVE tornados. I love them MORE when they are in an open field, but that you got to see one????WOw!!! Kind of a dream of mine. The ones that come through cities...now that's just tragic and sadening, but in an open field with no one in the way.....Yes please!!! I should be a storm chaser! Glad you guys are ok.....that's crazy stuff for sure

  9. This looks just like the one near Corinth, Texas...on that one the funnel cloud went over my place south of there and then our friends watched it go over their homes. Glad y'all are safe--our town always seems to get missed!
