This was spotted just blocks from my house and I took my own daring photos and posted them on my facebook. I am enjoying a glass of shiraz now. We were in the basement until a little after 7pm with tornado warnings and sirens going off.

we are supposed to have severe storms throughout the night and through Friday too. I almost wish it was snow instead.

Ohh.. Yikes! Glad you are safe.. That weather is on its way to us here in MI though. :( I'm hoping that it rains and gets over with by Friday. Going with the 1st graders on a field trip to the zoo!

Glad you are okay! Those are even more ominous looking than the ones we had last night. I didn't risk taking pictures. You couldn't pry me out of the basement. LOL! Stay safe!

Yikes! That is quite a photo. I'm happy to know y'all are safe. It's good to know y'all have a basement and sirens. We have neither here.

I had a glass of wine afterwards before I even had made supper since we were hunkered down in the basement for a while.

Yikes. I forgot that it's that season now. And flooding, too. Glad it missed you, but that is really scary! I wouldn't have been very calm AT ALL. There was one a few years ago that was MILES away, and I was so freaking out that my husband and father were out watching it. I guess I just don't know how fast they go, but the sirens and the "Mom, are we going to be ok?" and the like was just horrifying! Something I definitely DON'T want to remember!
