when there was tornado warning after tornado warning after tornado warning all around us from this humongous thunderstorm.
We like to call our present house our "practise house", before we actually build our "real actual final" home if/when we settle in the final place where I would hopefully be practising medicine. So, we bought a double wide and plopped down on our property. Hence, it's not going to be all that safe if a tornado DOES hit, but we are planning to build an underground cellar for that reason.
Anyway, we had to drive over to david's dad's house, about 7 miles away, while we waited out the storm and prayed that our house and animals would be safe, and tracking the storm on the computer over at his place.
I don't have screenshots of the tornado warning right over our property because we were over at Walter's and the above was the last screenshot I captured before we got into our car and drove to safety.
Thank God the most there was, was massive rainfall, winds gusting to 45 mph and pea sized hail.
