Guess my post was to alarming - not my intention - the tornado was spotted just off I-10 and heading NNE towards us onlly 5 miles away. A county sheriff spotted it not quite on the ground - I looked and could see the cloud but it never dropped. When the radio went off the TV started beeping and there was a gust of wind - we went for cover.
Thanks for all the concern - it has passed but we are still under a watch for the next 4 hours.
The old saying - "when it rains it pours" is very true. We have had 3.5 inches today - more than the last 3 months.
Again, not my intention to scare - I was in front of the keyboard about to send Sugarfoot a PM and just started posting.
P.S. Yes, Dacia - the dogs are in the house and all safe - the third dog is Boudreaux (it fits).
My weather radio is at work
I guess it's working. More rain coming, tornado watch for a few more hours. Our dogs won't go out!
