 Wow, just turned on the Weather Channel..... everyone in Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas needs to be on guard.  I can see old fashion storm cellars making a comeback.

Has any one talked to OKIE today? I am hearing reports of fatalities in El Reno and no answer on his cell. I hope they are alright!

I just got home and heard El Reno got hit and ran down here to check. Phew! Thanks for the heads up van. I should have known Don was more like a gopher and well underground!  :D

We are okay, we have a safe room in the garage, and we got in it.  Nasty weather system, it got a little crazy for awhile, but the majority of it went north of us, some homes a few miles up the road are now gone.  What was really spooky were the inflows, it was pulling in so much air (feeding it) that it was uprooting trees in the yard.

Not my kind of day.

To make matters worse, it was wrapped in rain, so therefore, invisible.  It was also multiples, one goes up, another goes down, two more spring up in a different location.  Big time weather system and baseball/softball size hail.

On the whole I would have rather been in Philadelphia.

Thanks to all of you for your concern, we are okay.
