We've had to go to a tornado shelter for 2 days in a row here in Oklahoma.
Bigshooter hates tornadoes and can't wait for the twister season to be over with.
They touched down within a few miles of us yesterday and today.

I have high regard for them now. I've lived in tornado country nearly my entire life. (SEKansas) I never paid too much attention until my home was destoyed with me in it. We were more fortunate than others, at least ours was still standing. I had neighbors next door that were completely leveled.

We lived in central Nebraska for years and also went through a tornado while hiding in our basement so we know what they can do as well.
We live in a small apartment complex and it is a short drive to a good shelter nearby, our neighbors just laugh us off when we try to tell them they should take take it seriously, I am hoping they never have to learn the hard way.

Oh my goodness-I just can't imagine the devastation of a tornado-within a FEW miles-you bet your a$$, I woulda went to a shelter,too! Good for you and I am glad you are well!
I was watching the news and saw tornadoes going through Illinois and emailed a few friends here on the board-they are fine, but Blackheart sent me some pictures of a house a mile from him and a golf course that use to be surrounded by trees-unbelievable!
Take care!
Carol~also hoping "twister season" is over soon! /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
