tornado videos

I just found videos on the internet about our tornado back on 5/24/11.  I can only say that these storm chasers have some mighty big "kahunas" to get that close to these monsters with video equipment just so us "fraddie cats" down in the "hiddie hole" can see the thing that destroyed our homes.  All I can say is thanks to you brave folks, I enjoyed watching them and appreciate the cold chills they brought to me on this very hot day. 
I am beginning to see some progress on my house.  Seems like the more they repair, the more damage they are finding.  We are hoping that they got the decking on today so they will be able to put the shingles on soon, the work can also begin on the inside of the house, as well as the outside and barn. 
DH took the day "off" from working at the house and we played a round of golf.  Now mind you that my 1, 5 and 7 woods were bent in the storm as well as my 5 iron.  The way I played today I think the remainder of my clubs got the shooie scared out of them and they did not want to come out to play.  Anyway, it was fun.
DD just brought me a nice warm brownie topped with vanilla ice cream.  Guess I better go eat it.


  1. Wow, I read your post about the tornado. I can't imagine what you all went through! And I agree, those storm chasers are brave souls. I watch those videos on youtube and I'm a wreck.
    Hoping you get your home and barn repaired soon.
    And no more tornados!

  2. Scaredie cat. Just a little humor. I think about you every day and I am glad you and Ches took some time off. All work and no play is no fun. I enjoy your blog as it keeps me up to date with you, till I see you again, much love.
