I'm thankful my family is safe and so our homes. We had SEVERE storms
yesterday- been without power for most of 2 days. Tornados were
spotted in nearly every surrounding county- I played dodge the debri
in my tiny Hyundai on the way home from work last night.

Several of our neighbors lost machine sheds, combines, car
windshields and so forth- one tornado overturned a police car right
after I had passed by.

I managed to stop in time, before driving off into a creek that had
overflowed it's banks. I had to sit and wait nearly an hour for the
water to go down enough to cross. My usual 1 hour trip home took
almost 3 hours.

AND they are callig for even more storms tonight. :( Anyone have an
ark for rent?




I forgot to add that there was soft ball sized hail- it knocked all
the windows out of our friends NEW van and put 2 cracks in my mom's
windshield *sigh*

I just talked to my mom and found out that the main power transformer in Palmyra was hit, and is now under water. They estimate it will be 3-4 days before power is restored to the town.

We have power (obviously) but we live out west and have a different substation.

Glad to hear that you got home safe. Living in PA, we have not had many tornadoes to worry about. Hope all stays well with you. I have heard on the tv that there are more storms all over the place. They are calling for severe weather here today, but so far it is ok. Stay safe.
