Norman tornado

I did the dumbest thing ever yesterday.  I left work about 15 minutes before a tornado touched down in town.  I got home without a hitch and then got worried about my "new" car getting hail damage.  So like an idiot I drove over by our hospital just a short distance from our house and parked my car under a drivethru at an abandoned nursing home across the street from the hospital.  I had the radio on and was listening when they said a tornado was on the ground heading toward the hospital.  I was scared stupid and wondering why I had pulled such a stunt.  Then the radio said the rain was so hard they "thought" it the tornado might we weakening so I decided to make a run for it.  I pulled out and I could see the tornado completely wrapped in rain.  It was pouring so hard you could barely see the road.  I just kept going until I got to my house and ran inside and took shelter in the hall.  There was damage not far from our house but we were spared.

AGAIN  DUMBEST THING I'VE EVER DONE!  To heck with the car!

We are bracing ourselves for more to come........

I have been worried about you all when I heard it hit your area. Glad you dodged that bullet. It will be heading this way Sunday night. What a stressfull time of year. Stay safe and let us know.
