May 31 Storm Pics from OK

I don't know how well the colors will show up in these photos, I was moving pretty quickly as the storm came in.



Can you see the green tinge to some of the sky? That's typical Tornado's Coming signs.



We say, "the Devil is beating his wife" when you can see the sun during a storm like this.


He sho' nuff did too.



The sky turned BLACK before all Hayell broke loose.



Starting to rain HARD, I'm inside shooting out through a living room window. (Against ALL the weather radio's advice.)



Clouds starting to spin.

AFTER:









Thank God I have not needed this little 2 stall barn this year. It would have been devastating.



My last old growth fruit tree. The drought of the last 3 years killed everything else, now the storm finished this one off.



We lost several other trees too, but none as big as this old apple tree.

Now we're under a flood warning......Like we hadn't already flooded! LOL!





I may grouse about the damage and the flooding but truly, we were Blessed by God. Not one human or animal lost even a single hair, fur or feather. Thank God for His Great Mercies. We can rebuild and replant.

I'm glad you and yours weren't hurt. Those storms have been scary stuff. We get a tiny twister once in a blue moon, our threat is more of the hurricane variety, and we are inland enough that even that threat is fairly minor most of the time. If it's all the same, I'll stay right where I am, and you can keep all that scary weather.

Yikes! I would be shaking in my boots if the sky was turning like that around me.

Thank goodness everyone made it out without so much as a bad hair day. The Angels were watching over you.

This is the first time since we've been in this house that my HUSBAND was the one who said, "I think it's time to go down into the 'Fraidy Hole.". I had left the windows to stir something on the stove and all Hayell busted loose right about then. We had a lovely lantern lit dinner down in the storm shelter, smelling kerosene and mildew......YUM! But it was SO amazingly quiet and peaceful down there.....We were completely shocked to see the damage when we came up. We'd been thinking we ran down there for nothing. NOT SO MUCH! LOL!

Glad nobody (or animals) got injured from the whole ordeal! Definitely a nerve racking experience :3

We had a little tornado over here in Missouri the other day. A hotel, casino, and quite a few homes got quite the beating. Not many homes were "laying flat" but quite a bit of siding, roofing, trees blown in, etc happened. Luckily for us, the tornado hopped right over our subdivision :3

From being raised on the west coast then living in east TX I have a whole new respect for mother nature after seeing it first hand after the tornado hit the town I lived in. Makes you think twice when those clouds start looking like that!

That's normally what happens around here. We make jokes about the "Stillwater Bubble". Glad y'all are ok!

So with the flooding, that means no drought this year? And so glad just a little barn & tree were the only ones damaged!
