    hey!

    Just wanted to check in on everybody and make sure everything is ok. Those storms last night were crazy!!!! Our sirens were going off and there was a small-ish tornado just a couple miles down the road from our house!!! Luckily everything at our place is ok. A few trees down in the neighborhood, some bits of fences broken etc. But nothing devastating for sure. It was nuts driving to work today...no power in a lot of places, roads closed because power lines are down in them, uprooted trees...it was like an obstacle course on some streets! I'm realizing that David and I were very lucky this time around. all our patio furniture got blown around and stuff...but at least it was still in our yard!! AND I think I managed to NOT get hail damage on my car!!! Which is amazing 'cause there were ping pong ball size to golf ball size chunks of it in my yard!

    Anyway, I hope everyone is safe and didn't get any serious damage to their homes!!

            Oh my goodness- that's crazy. I've always wanted to see a storm like that because our weather is always so tame. I'm glad nothing was damaged though!

              I didn't go out to look, but it surely was windy out there. No damage close to what you described though thanks goodness.

                  yeah, they're pretty impressive. And I really did miss it when I lived in CA for a few years. There's just nothing like it. But it sucks when it's bad enough for the tornado sirens to go off...it kinda stops being fun then! lol! And you can't really watch AND be safe which sucks too...'cause that's the crazy sh*t you kinda want to see! lol!

                  Apparently! lol! But I slept through the storms on Tues night and everyone I talked to was shocked...their kids, pets etc were all up freaking out etc. I guess it was pretty intense, but I woke up the next morning, saw the ground wet and was all, "It rained?!" lol! So I get where you're coming from! ;-)

                    It hit hard here about 230 this morning I was up watching the news. There were two tornados just like nine miles from here!! I was freaking out. I was home alone my FI is up in Wichita Fallas working. My poor dogs were hiding under the bed. I was up for about two hours until it died down enough I could get some sleep. There were trees down everywhere on my way to work. I am glad to hear you girls are OK I was pretty worried last night.
