Too Close For Comfort

Friday evening, around 6:30, a quick moving storm came through here. It brought with it a tornado that touched down on the south east side of town. We were in the stuff*mart (they made us all gather together in the back of the store) which is about a mile or 2 from where the tornado touched down. Thankfully there was only a couple minor injuries from it, and it looked like only 2 homes were completely destroyed. There was a mobile homes sales business that was destroyed. I only ever recall seeing 6-8 trailer homes there at a time. That is where they showed all the damage on the news though.

Here is a link to a video of the tornado that came through here. July 11, 2008 tornado.

We got 2 pictures on our way out of town on Saturday morning.



Nice timing on the second picture, huh?

Yikes! I may have been hit with two floods in six months, but at least you have more WARNING with them...Hurricanes, too. Tornaoes scare the **** out of me!
Glad you are all okay. Blessings, E
