PostSubject: Tornado out my Back Door   Sat Dec 12, 2015 11:20 pm

Just had a Tornado pass yards from my back door about 2 or more hours ago. As bout the most frightening thing I've seen, a man with a gun I can deal with but, Mother Nature on the rampage is uncontrollable. Thankfully it was a jumper and didn't do any damage here except knock out our power till now. !/2 mile away it torn roofs off and got nasty and then left in a hurry. Our warning sirens didn't even go off till after it pass us and hit the center of town. I heard the roaring noise and sorta knew what was coming. By the time I made it to the back door it was in walking distance from me and left as fast as it came.

Holy fright! Glad you came away unscathed Ron. That's just too close for comfort!

Shocked 

Used to live in tornado country when I was a cheesehead. None visited me very close, but came near to a couple at various periods.

So good to know you're OK.

Exclamation 


Cheers,

RR

Wow! I'll bet that stiffened the hair on the back of your neck! I'm very glad to hear that you and yours are okay though. Nature can be a scary thing sometimes. You can shout at it or plead with it, but it doesn't matter. It's going to do it's thing whether you like it or not.

Thank you all for your concern Wink
It frightened me but, not to the point of being traumatized, went out for supper not long after it.
Just too boring at the house without power. Now I gotta order a new power supply for my PC and I reckon it's time for a new surge protector. 5)


And Richard, I wanted to but, it came and went before I could reach for my shot gun. Laughing
Raining like mad dogs here now but, it suppose to clear Monday...........I hope.
Had to wade to the shop this morning. Rolling Eyes

Even tornadoes avoid Ron's House!!!

Seriously though Ron, glad to hear you're ok.
Have never experienced a tornado but have come face to face with some Forces of Nature at sea and when Mother Nature decides to mess with you there ain't a lot you can do.
