The storms stayed south, east, and north of us, and we were in the middle zone that didn't have any tornadoes, thankfully! Just hail, strong winds, and crazy rain.

What's strange is the night before all these storms hit, my wife and I found our VHS tape of the footage I took after a massive tornado we had back in 1999. We watched that Saturday and showed the kids.

Hope you all had a great weekend! And hope you have an even better week!
wow, scary stuff, so glad you are all safe.
I listened to some of this on CNN, pretty bad in some areas.
We live in an area where tornado's come too, the last few years there have been more and stronger ones.

Wow, that sounds like it was a close call for your grandparents - I'm so glad you and your family are okay! My prayers are going out to the family and friends of the fellow who was killed and to all those affected by the tornadoes.

Good morning, MMC!

A very Happy Monday to you!!! I love Mondays - so many good things happen on this day. Already I was hugged by my cat, picked out a new book to read, and, best of all, found a Christmas ornament on my desk as I was clearing it off. I just know the rest of the day will only get better - but, seriously, it will be hard to top the hug!!

I read there could be some horrible storms today - please be safe, everyone! We could get some thunderstorms later this afternoon - my garden needs watering so I am hoping for a nice soaking rain.

Again, be safe! And MERRY, too!!!

I didn't hear about this, praying for Ryan, his family and all that are affected.
Thank you! And thanks to Xmas365 and everyone else who thought of us last night! (I'm still not sure how to quote multiple posts). But thank you all so much!

Here is one pic I took last night. We were with our friends across the street (they have a storm shelter we use). Don't know if you can tell by the picture, but the clouds where swirling, and it looked pretty cool.
