Thanks Aforred, that's is very sweet of you too offer. I gotta have a good look around the property tomorrow, that's all I saw on a quick run around between storms. Good news is, Fraidy Hole is very secure and QUIET, I couldn't hear a bit of the storm once we got down there. Before that, in the house? OMG, it sounded like the whole thing was coming down.

I went out just before everything went to Hayell and took some pics that I'll get up tomorrow. Hopefully it will show how black and green the sky was, it was pretty freaky lookin'.

Thanks all, I'm fine. The storms came scary close to our house. We were actually about to leave for a horseshow when they starte rolling in, so instead we had to leave our home and horses and take shelter south in Tuttle. The storm caught up with us however, and tried to take my s10 off the road. Didn't get back home till 9ish, and my parrots cage (I felt so bad, I had set it on the porch so he could get some air and the storm came up so fast we forgot to put him inside) was thrown 20 feet and the bottom of the cage had him pinned down. He's okay though!!

My boyfriend (thank god!) beat me to the house to check on my horses. I sprinted into the rain to see if they were okay when he said "is your gate supposed to be open?" The words no horse owner wants to hear during a tornadic storm....

I remember praying to God while bunkered in Tuttle to keep my boyfriends house (they said his street addresses on the radio), my horses, and ourselves safe. God must have heard me, the horses were bunkered down no more than 20 yards away from the wide open gate...they stayed in the shed the whole storm. Little Dusty came running out in the pouring rain to see me, then ran back to the shed. My boyfriend and his friend were clear in the back pasture frantically looking for them when they heard me screaming for joy. We regained electricity about 10 minutes after we got home. So thankful...

We are all safe, our horses are safe, and we made it to the show the next morning (priorities! Lol).

Thank you for posting that link aforred. It reminds of what is still happening in OK. It isn't on the news anymore and we tend to go on and forget about it. These poor people still need help.
