Today started with me having to run a couple of errands. I wanted to make a couple of stops at one of my favorite Goodwill stores on the way home. My husband however, called and said to get home. Bad storms were coming......
......no sooner did I make it home that it hit! My poor dogs were going bonkers before I was even to the front door. Sophie was shaking like a leaf on a tree.....and speaking of trees....they were swaying so from the wind I was afraid they might snap into.
This storm passed right over my husbands work and was moving north east. All of this happened in the span of a few minutes...it felt like hours.
Trucks picked up and tossed over 200 feet in the air......at one time there were four on the screen of the television spinning like tops.
Tonight, there are over 40,000 people with no electricity, some are friends of mine. There were up to 20 Tornado's confirmed. We are safe. Some of our friends have been
effected but thankfully there have been no confirmed deaths at this time in all of the areas that experienced damage.
The winds blew, rain fell, hail slammed the ground and the sirens blew......loud.......I gathered my three pups up and placed them in the bathtub. I closed the bathroom door and sat on the floor petting them trying to give them some comfort. My husband called and I am sure thought I was overreacting. I don't think so.
Here is a video of one of the tornados today..... This was less than seven miles from my house......overreacting??? I think not!
I heard possibly more storms are on the way............
