We are all OK! We could see the tornado from Our back porch and went to the storm shelter. It hit a trailer park 6 miles southwest of Us. We have insulation and stuff from the trailer park. It went up I-40 and pushed tractor trailer rigs off the third tier of the I-40 onto highway 177. Homes along that highway (which I take to work) were torn up. We had golf ball + size hail. One of Our plumbing truck had hail damage-not to bad! A niece lost a barn and (I have been told) a niece-in-law lost Her home. I could hear sirens all night long on I-40. We still did not have power when I left for work. We have a generator that kept the fan in the house going and the frig. We may have more storm today. Please everyone take care and be safe. Love Y'all!1 ((HUGS))

    My thoughts are with you , it is so scary to be in the middle of that. I am sorry to hear of how hard hit your area is right now. I was waiting to see if I got deployed to aid in disaster relief into Texas but I am thinking they may divert to Oklahoma now. Be careful, stay safe.

    So glad you're ok, Susan. I just heard about the tornados and came here to check to make sure you're fine. That was very close.

    I am relieved to hear that y'all are all right! Praying for your continued well-being! Thankfully, the storms are petering out by the time they reach us and I pray that trend continues, but I do mourn for those not so fortunate!
Continue to keep your eyes on the skies and stay safe, my friend! And I will do the same. ((((HUGS))))

    After the crazy weather we've had the last few months I figured the tornadoes would be bad. One town in Nebraska went from 56-109 degrees in just a few hours the other day. You know that's going to stir up bad weather. Glad you're safe and really feel for all those folks who have lost everything.
