Memorial day around 3:00 PM, got home from the grocery store and sat down on the couch for a rest. difficult child said Mom it looks funny outside you better look at it. I looked outside and saw a funnel cloud right down the street. There was no warning and there were no sirens. They call it some kind of cloud burst of some kind, but there were many of us who saw the tornado. It came right off the highway and into our neighborhood. 12 homes totally destroyed and 100 homes had damage. My home and the one next to me had absolutely nothing. We were the only two in the park that had absolutel no damage. I have a caldeum plant that was on my front porch, fairly delicate plant and it was not affected by it at all. Not one injury thank goodness. 40 people were gathered at a barbecue on the next block. They all made it to their homes and no one was hurt. Amazing. Fema, Red Cross, Sherriff's office have been helping and that was great. We were able to get out and help get some light twigs up. Can't lift much with back issues. We were evacuated for only one evening because of a gas main break. difficult child alerted me and then as I told her where to go, the interior bathroom and jump in the tub, she said to me are you sure this is the safest place? I think your bathroom is better. Even during a tornado the kid questions me. Lol, I put her and the dog in the tub and I sat on the toilet lid and prayed, I heard trees snapping and breaking and at one time it sounded like the roof might blow away but it missed us. We have had a tornado drill down in every home we have lived in, I just couldnt believe she thought she knew better. She did grab her swimming goggles and put them on, lol. No MORE STORMS PLEASE.
