View Full Version : Close Call Tor Tornado

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.

YIKES! I hope you guys are doing okay!

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!

Yikes! I'd be changing my pants about now if I had seen that

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!

Wow! Glad you are safe!

Glad you're OK! It's going to be a rough season, I think. :(

WOW! Close call is right! Altho I probably would have done the same thing and snuck in some pics! Hope the whole neighborhood is safe!

And I forgot you were in MN!! I'll have to find out how close that was to my parents house - I bet my dad is working like a madman today!

LOL!! Wow - how could I have forgotten - then I saw your name again - DUH!!! Sorry - preggo brain, getting over being sick = SLOW!!

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.

Yikes! I'd be changing my pants about now if I had seen that

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

05-02-2012, 02:58 PM
WOW! Crazy! Great photos

Glad you are ok! Hope you don't have to do that for the rest of week as well! That whole bottle would be gone if it was me! LOL!

Holy smokes! Scary!!!! Glad you are safe and sound ---- thank goodness for a little "liquid calmness" too!!!

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!
