Close call last night.

Damn that was close. I had a tornado miss me by 2 miles last night :shock: . Power went out about 10:00 PM and they finally got it back on about 9:00 AM this morning. It took down 3 transmission lines and pretty much blacked out 4 counties. I just got my cablevision and internet back about and hour ago.

I know it got rough out there, hope everybody is ok. I like to chase um but rather it be out in the unpopulated TX and OK panhandle.

I haven't heard of any reports about injuries. What made this scary is it was dark. I was out in the shop working on the aluminum dash and I could hear it but not see a damn thing.

Good to hear your O.K. Tornado's aren't much fun at all. I thought I had it bad with ice dams, and a leaky roof this winter. Tornados are something that I dont want to have to deal with.

Thank the Good Lord there Doug. Twisters are nasty things. I have seen what happened at Greensburg KS and it wasn't pretty. Prayers went out to all down there. Drought and now a tornadoe, me thinks the Lord is trying to get someones attention.

Glad to hear you are ok Doug. I hate those night time storms can't see them coming and they sure don't give any warning.

Weather boogie

Doug,
Glad to hear that y'all are OK over there.
In Alpharetta GA...my slide-in truck camper (where I live while at the track...) was wiped out by hail.
I will have to re-skin the front portion.
My buddies' trailers had lots of 'skin damage too.
It could have been worse.
Later///
Keith
