Jon,

Thanks for the expression of concern. Where most of the tornadoes hit is about 60-70 miles (by car) from where I live outside of Dallas. We had a fair amount of rain but that was it.

Thank you Jon. All good here. We don't get many tornadoes this far South. I'm not exactly sure why that is - probably has something to do with the Gulf. Of course that is also why we get hurricanes.  :'( Please pray for us they they stay away again this year.  :angel:

I was near one in Dallas once. At 2 in the afternoon it turned pitch black out; the street lights came on and damn near baseball sized hail dropped out of the sky and suddenly it turned freakishly calm as could be...until all hell broke loose. A trailer park about 3/4 mile away got leveled and 20 people died. It was as if the Devil himself came to Dallas that day.

I've seen a waterspout and they typically are several orders of magnitude less intense than a tornado. All I can tell you is that I pray I never see a tornado.

Doing it well, thank you for asking.

I have loved the warm spring of Dallas, but the tornadoes were indeed a surprise.
Fortunately, just a lot of rain, very strong winds, enough to take a few trees down in the neighborhood and thunder with lightning like I have rarely seen.

Was quite sad to hear about the casualties of the storm.
