Here are some pictures of the tornado we saw on Saturday. These pictures were taken by one of Les' co-workers who was driving home from the city. It's not the same view that we had from our back-yard, but it give you a glimpse of the action the be-fell us.

Wow, scary! It's like what you see on the news but always have that feeling i n the back of your head that that is something that happens ot other people.

Jenn said...

I love your newspaper headings!

Jamie said...

Wow! Glad everything was okay (and I'm glad I don't live in your town anymore, though I'm still close!) And I'm sure you weren't the only scared adult who saw that!

Wow - aren't tornadoes just the creepiest looking thing on the planet! With that snakelike "tail" and the big nasty in the sky . . . give me the chills just thinking about it!!!

Pam said...

you title says it all!

Daphne said...

so glad y'all are okay!!

mama said...

wow....glad you didn't have to actually "experience" it!!! My sister lives in tornado zone. They had 2 touch downs already and the summer has just begun!!! How do you prepare for something like this at night when you can't see?? Do you have a plan of action? We live in earthquake zone....just great huh?
I think tornado zone is better!! At least you can see it coming and can watch for it. Not so with earthquakes!! Lets hope it never happens!!

Love the newspaper slideshow!! What seems really weird to me is that it isn't all cloudy and stormy ~ like, there's patches of clear blue sky! I thought tornadoes happened only under storm conditions, but obviously not!

It's like the dust devils we see all the time out here. Just all of a sudden, there'll be a black column of dirt rising a hundred feet into the air, moving across a field. There doesn't have to be ANY clouds!! Bizarre.

I had to walk through one the other day and though I knew it wasn't strong enough to pick me up or anything, it still felt a little freaky having my breath halfways sucked out of me and to feel the wind blowing in two different directions at once.

Take care- Kellan

Tara said...

What a cool idea! Nice pictures..lol, although I hope we don't see anymore of that kind anytime soon!

Melanie said...

WOW!! That sure does deserve a "holy crap!"

MamaGeek said...

HOLY CRAP is right. Thank GOD you are all safe.

Regina said...

I love that scared children ... and scared Andrea! Very creative
Has everything settled down yet?

That is what was so weird, it wasn't even storming then. We had friends in that Town for a wedding and they were completely oblivious to any tornado. The stranger thing yet was that it was storming in the morning but no tornado then. Shrug.

Need slide show!

I love the movie Twister but I don't want to be a storm chaser - give me thunderstorms and lots of rain but not the winds. ;)

And the slide show you made is really neat!!
