A First

After living in this area all our lives, my husband and I saw our first tornado in real life yesterday.

It was awesome and disturbing at the same time.



Thankfully this weak funnel was actually 6 to 8 miles away (from our house) in a more sparsely populated area and from what I saw on the news it only touched down for a few seconds doing little damage. For two minutes or so we watched it until it shriveled up and dissolved back into the sky. My husband was entirely excited about seeing it but it was way too close for comfort for me after seeing the unbelievable devastation in Alabama, Missouri, Oklahoma and other areas lately.

These are very impressive pictures! I wouldn't like it either if it were that close to where I live! Stay safe!
