TORNADO - 5 miles away and closing

Was catching up and the weather radio went off - I'm going to the hall way. We need rain but this is too much.


Back in a few.

The pause here is getting uncomfortable.

Good Karma to you and QUICK! . . . . Mike, you and Tina take care of you first. Give us a heads up when it's over and can communicate. It's been nearly an hour now. . . .

Safe and sorry for the scare.....

Sorry about the scare - the weather radio on auto alert really works - I would recommend one to all of you.

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.

Mike

P.S. Yes, Dacia - the dogs are in the house and all safe - the third dog is Boudreaux (it fits).

Just lost power - generator kicked in and I'm up. All the dead pines by the lines from Katrina are now rotting and falling down on the lines.

Neighborhood is dark - what a flashback to Katrina.

Back soon - gotta do my power management stuff

Darkness is better than homeless

What a relief! Glad everyone is safe, you, Tina, Daisy, Clancy, Boudreaux (the Cajun Labrador ) and all. Hopefully, nothing will progress further than a little power outage.
