Exclamation Tornado warning!!!!!!!

Just to let everyone know, I am about to take cover from a tornado warning. There has already been 1 tornado spotted west of town and is heading east south east. I will log on to post again after it is clear. It has been really nice to know you guys and I don't mean to sound pessimistic but I am absolutely terrified of storms.

Hopefully talk to yall later.

Wish me luck.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Ok, the serious danger has passed now. Now all I have to worry about is large hail and damaging winds. :( Sorry, just was really panicked there for a minute and didn't really know what to do.

Yipes! I forgot it was hurricane season again! Hope everything turns out ok where you're at.

In the early days of the Indian Territory, there were no such things as birth certificates. You being there was certificate enough. -Will rogers

Whew, its all clear now. Talk about a panic rush. Now the sky is clear....stupid Texas weather. I would rather take on a broncy horse every hour of every day than deal with one tornado.

Wow Smrobs! I've never experienced anything like that and hope I never do. The worst thing I have to deal with this time of year in Maine is the black fly season (just about finished here). Will NEVER complain about them again after reading what you all have to deal with out there!

Glad you're okay.

Thank you all. Yeah, it is so ridiculous. One minute I was sitting there watching TV and then I heard the sirens go off. They mean that a tornado has been spotted and you need to take cover NOW. So I changed to the weather channel and started watching. From the first blow of the siren until the skies were nearly clear again was about 40 minutes. I just wish that we would have more warning when the weather is going to very bad almost instantly. Oh, well. That's one of the risks of living in a place that I love.

It's cute you came to us here I was sitting at home, would I love to see a tornado! not something you would see here. We deal with snow and hail storms. It seems over the years we have gotten more and more tornado warnings but they are nothing compared to what you guys deal with there.

So glad to hear you are ok now. Please post pictures!
