Too close for comfort

Last night I woke up to Kia (our dog) prancing around frantically at close to 4 a.m. I thought she might need an early potty break, but she went out really fast and then kept freaking out and then the tornado sirens started. If you think only trailer parks get messed up from tornadoes, think again. Here is the destruction from a neighborhood just 4 miles down the road from me. We have had the sirens sound 2 times now in just a month. I guess I should expect it more often (we do live in tornado alley), but I hope that's it for awhile. We were lucky and didn't even have a shingle blow off the roof. I didn't get very good shots of people's actual houses because I didn't want to be rude. Crazy!@
Yeah, that's heavy duty guard rail!


check out how mangled the trampoline is!
This is at the movie theatres, which are only about 1 mile away.

I didn't know you lived in a tornado zone. That is crazy!

Holy cow! If I am having a nightmare, it is usually concerning tornados. Glad to hear you guys are alright!
