Lions and Tigers and Bears

Well, we were pounded by storms last night.  Tornado over my daughter's house but they were safe in their cellar.  We'd no more finish one round of storms than another cell would form and we'd start all over again.  

Tigers and bears escaped a wild life refuge and I thought we were going to see Dorothy and her house fly by at any minute. At one time the wind was 70 mph and then we got hail.  Some places had golf ball to baseball size hail.  Fortunately we had about quarter size but the wind was blowing it so hard.

Now, we are looking at storms again tonight through the weekend.   I'M TIRED!

I've lived in tornado alley all my life so I'm pretty accustomed to tornadoes but now that we are having earthquakes that's a whole new bag of marbles.  With tornadoes I know how to get out of the way.....those earthquakes are devious devils.  There is no place to run and they sneak up on you.

Which would you rather deal with......?

Neither. But nature is the boss.

So glad you dodged the bullets. It must be so wearing to be threatened so often.
Stay safe.

There have been small tornadoes in VT in recent years, but I have not experienced them. I have felt earthquakes. Can't say I would choose either.
