I'm glad you and family are ok. Are you at home or camping?

I'm at home. I spent a lot of time last night in the basement while the storms rolled through....scary stuff.

I leave for vacation camping in about 2 weeks. Going to Utah for a week to camp with my daughter who lives out thatta way and hopefully a week to spend around the Redwood National Forest. I want to stand under the canopy of those awesome trees. I want to hug a few :lol: want to be a treehugger of the biggest kind :mrgreen:

Did your already compromised greenhouse fair well through the storm?

Greenhouse did fare well....I was surprised :o

My wife and I drove past the touchdown area and was in awe how powerful the winds were to have caused such devastation. I should have take my video recorder. Will go back tomorrow to do a video.

Thanks Cadyak. In my lifetime I have seen the results of tornado touch downs here in the county where I live. I stay well alert when severe thunder storms are in the area. I respect the warnings to the max. My basement entry is at arms length away ready for me to make a mad dash downward. ;)

So destructive! We caught some of the high winds and a neighbor who just put up a large barn on his farm, had half of it blown away. Mostly the roof and some 4x4 material ended up across the road.
