Storms and Tornadoes

We here in Conway, Arkansas were very fortunate tonight.  Tornadoes went around us while our sirens sounded for approximately 3 hours.  Unfortunately, our neighbors 10 miles east in Vilonia weren't so lucky.  Indications are they they took the full brunt of an EF5 tornado (ripped pavement up).  Only 2 fatalities so far in the state; if this doesn't grow, it'll be a very good thing.

Glad you made it through the storms safely. We were also lucky as one touched down just 10 miles north of us.

Heather, it's just been a crazy week. The next day, a funnel cloud went right over my house. And then of course the devastation in Alabama yesterday. Yikes!!

I did laugh at myself on Monday though because I through my pillows and blankets into the bathroom, just in case. But then also thought, I need to protect my digital camera and laptop too. I couldn't lose my family info!! HA!
