In the words of the immortal Shirley Temple "Oh my gooness!"

That was some video - elevated my heart rate from 10 states away. Keep reporting in. Glad to know everyone's OK so far, and hope the news continues positive. Really it's just a miracle that one of those trailers didn't land on a school.

Please repurpose your 50's vintage bomb shelters for tornado shelters.

Unhappy Update, As Darkness Falls

Spooky colored skies around these parts today!! The tornado siren's started barking in my area at around 1:20 PM central time. It sounded like everyone in the State was testing their siren's all to once until I turned on the tv news. WOW! I never saw Doppler Radar screen shots look so mean!

Before the storm font left the Dallas/Fort Worth area late this afternoon, off to the east, 5 Counties were hit by up 12 tornado's! They say that they won't know the final number until they can get out there a survey over the next day or so.

Thank God, so far there has been no serious injuries or death reported!

Was indeed a spookie day in the big D today. Entire office crammed into a small room with pillows and couch cushions. Hail was baseball sized and made minced meat of our Audi and the truck!!! BUT we are all safe and sound. Both Airstreams were under cover. Now THAT would have made us cry! Stay safe all. Lots of good thoughts for all you folks in Lancaster and Arlington.

Hail and lots of thunder/lightning right now in South Mississippi at 0100 - same front passing through. Hail looks to be smaller than a dime but will have to wait for daylight to assess damage if any. Winds are real bad. Trees are really twisted with gusts over 60 mph easy. It's going to be a long night.

I'm with ya Clancy! We were very fortunate here in the Dallas / Fort Worth area today in that there was no reports of serious injury or death from the otherwise devastation that was on top of us. Lots of damage to homes, although so far Mother Nature is trying to send us a very conservative message...

Let us hope that she will be more tolerant of us humans again in the future! And yes, we have much work to do!

Be looking soon for some great deals on slightly used Airstreams from Texas!

Probably not a lot of slightly used ones coming out of this storm. Most of the dealers have only 3-4 units on thier lots and the three DFW locations seemed to be mostly in the corridors between the supercells... but you never know.. if you see an AS headed up I35 that looks alot like a golf ball, it may indeed have come from around here

Somehow I'm thinking a hail-dimpled new one is still going to have a price tag that would choke THIS old mule. Esp. if the savings includes a salvage title.

That is true. Did you guys escape unscathed over there?

No word from Shane yet, wondering how THEPILL made out....

Yes....let's hope all our streamers from that area check in to tell us they're okay.

We just had heavy rain and moderate lightning (just west of the Botanic Gardens) and didn't even have a power failure. I didn't have an excuse to interrupt my workday.

I went last night down to the storage facility and verified that the Argosy is fine as well. It's covered but not enclosed, so flying debris or horizontal hail could conceivably be a problem.

All of us here made it through, lots of cleanup and rebuilding to do though.
