Today......I bring you tornado's and hail. That's right tornado's in Feb!! We got evacuated to the basement at work, and a funnel cloud went right over us. A tornado hit and tore the roof completely off the Target that I shop at (and my parents live by). I have been in contact with both of my parents all afternoon. My Mom was on lock-down at school, where my Dad eventually joined her. I drove by their house on my way home (and stopped for a few minutes in their garage while the hail went past) there was NO damage at their house. Then I was off to get the kids, as soon as I drove into the parking lot the tornado sirens went off AGAIN. So it was inside to sit in the shelter with the kiddos.
We had a small break in the storms and I headed out and came home. As soon as I got the kiddos inside the rain began and quickly turned to hail! Lots and lots of hail. It winds were blowing about 65mph so it was into the bathroom we went. The bad part of the storm passed after about a half hour.
We are all ok. I no longer have a Target to shop at and there is extensive damage in Edmond. Please keep all of those folks in you thoughts! The storms have weakened, so hopefully no more bad weather tonight.
Update....Many stores and homes have been damaged. Thankfully my family can count ourselves lucky, no damage to any of our homes.
I hadn't realized it at first, but Jay had let my cat out this morning! She came back just a few minutes ago. She is fine, wet and tired, but fine!
