That is way too close! I'm glad you made it through with no damage and especially that everyone is OK! The weather certainly has been strange..........................it will May 1st and I am still looking at snowbanks after just receiving another 15 inches last weekend! Where is Spring??????????? Again, I am so glad you are OK!!!!

Warm hugs,

Peggy

I am so glad that you and yours are okay, Barbara... thank you for letting us know.
It was a very odd pattern that tornado took, wasn't it?!

As Peggy stated, the weather is doing very strange things!

Oh how scary!

I was in one tornado once and it was quite mild, but still very frightening. Glad you are OK.

THANKS GUYS!!!! I just heard on the news here that there were 9 confirmed tornados in Virginia that day!!! We have a saying here in Virginia....If you don't like the weather, just wait 15 minutes, it'll change :P . We've had LOTS of rain this past few weeks and all they were officially calling for on the day of the twisters was rain, not even thunderstorms!! It was really weird,m because, we didn't have thunderstorms, but had tornadoes anyway!!
Peace :)
