Talk about CLOSE!
For the first time in the 9 years I've lived here, we had a serious, close tornado threat. One touchdown was about 10 miles from me. I know that doesn't sound like much to those of you who regularly deal with tornadoes, but we simply do not have them here. Something about the mountain ridges keep them away. But tonight, the Lab went and hid in the bathroom (normally she plants herself on top of me during storms) and the Poodle had to be in physical contact with me (normally, the same room is close enough.) Didn't get to see ANY of the programs I usually watch because the local weather people just kept updating their reports which were coming in hot and heavy from all over the area. I tried to find some photos on line but even the news stations haven't posted them yet. Apparently there was little to no damage to people and/or property. Still under a warning, but the bad weather is well away from me. In fact, I just made a group of dogs go outside in preparation for bedtime. I hope I'll get everyone out before the rain starts up again. And, other than that, nothing new to report!
