Totally OT but a tornado just touched down near us!

December 23rd, 2009 at 02:54 pm

It's done some damage but is moving away from our area at this time. However, we're smack dab in the middle of a nasty cell that's spawning a few of them... please keep little ol' Denise and her family in your prayers!

Whew! That cell has moved on but more nastiness is on the way, apparently, and we're under a tornado watch until 9:30 or so tonight. The tornado touched down about a mile from us and stayed on the ground for about 20 miles. They aren't sure how much damage was done but know there was some.

I just love living in East Texas!

    Oh dear. Has anyone been hurt?

  5. DeniseNTexas Says:

    No one was hurt but it tore up some buildings here then traveled on the ground for about 20 miles, doing more damage as it went along. Amazing that no one was injured though!

    Oh, we're fine today but preparing for the "Great Blizzard of '09"! Ehh, we're supposed to get some snow and a little ice and when that happens here, it's cause for panic. Wink
