Tornado Afternoon

http://www.beaumontenterprise.com/multimedia/tornado_strikes_near_mall_in_beaumont.html

A storm brewed all morning while I worked outside. It thundered from 9 am ...it still is.... around 130 or so I had my two walls finished and ready to be attached. It started raining hard and a ton of lightening. At 230, I was still attaching and Donald calls. He asked if everything was ok and I was kinda clueless, ummm yeah.
A tornado just hit Dowlen road (main bussiness area in our city) and I live about 4 miles from the mall.

10 people were hurt, not seriously. Walmart and Kohls had sections of the roof ripped off. (I despise kohls for the their employee treatment, and lack of donating clothes to charities they cannot sell- so the evil side of my heart just leaped for joy at the amount paperwork they will have to do)

We have another HUGE cell that might be headed for us and it is a wierd feeling of wanting to run.

  1. Good grief! Stay safe and be sure to get back on here once all the weather passes to let us all know you're okay.

  3. I'm glad to hear that the storm has passed.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. It's so easy to get so wrapped up in being so attached to another person and having no free time that I sometimes (often) need to vent.
