Default Survived the Tornados

We were lucky-we didn't get hit by any of the local tornados. Unfortumately others in our community weren't so lucky. I have some good pictures but of course, being a little computer illiterate I can't seem to upload them-as much as I hate to I will have to get the hubby (computer geek) to do it.

Thank God that you are okay!

Pictures of stuff like that is so eerie because you see everyday items in such unnatural ways.

I hope everyone in your community is safe, even if their possessions aren't.

Default Tornado Last Night in TN

Here is some pics she took.

These are pics of 4 houses across the street from my Parents house, where my dad was keeping our 5 year old daughter. They managed to avoid any damage at all, which we are all grateful. The people across the street were not so lucky.

yeah, she is doing good. They closed the school today too, power was out. She stayed the night with them last night, and apparently woke up around 3am wanting momma. We were going to bring her home last night, but she insisted to stay, so we let her.

All of the people were at home in the houses above. One of my cousins that lives next door to my parents took a few of them in last night. It would be very scary to hear your house ripped apart while your in it

I bet! We had a really bad one about 15 years ago and it did a lot of damage. Mostly farms and their live stock. It took out a shopping mall in Orangeville. We get a lot of tornado warnings but rarely get any. If one does touch down it doesn't last long. Every so ofter Toronto will get what they call Micro Bursts which will do a lot of damage in one small area.
Keep safe.

WOW Glad to hear everyone is doing OK!

Great photos (I think) I always feel weird saying that because it is devastating to see.

Naw they did NOT get the truck, i wish they did take it actually as I would have been better off!!!!! They were too STUPID to get it, they just made a big mess broke the window, broke the lock, screwed up the starter, ignition battery etc. I was outta town which made the whole experience worse, truck still has to go in to get the lock replaced.

I hate theives and I told the cop who responded that if he had to repsond to my location a second time to bring an ambulance with him as I was gonna beat them before he got there, he said what I dont see I cant report... Very few like him let me tell ya!!!!!

Man that stinks l2l, hate to hear that. I dont blame you, someone coming on my property is going to have to answer to several people...Smith, Wesson, Remington, to name a few

Someone must have known you were out of town huh? If its never happened before, and it coincidentally happened while you were gone.
