Weather Porn

Trailer Up





In case you can't tell, that's a trailer from a semi that is several hundred feet up in the air.  Several of these were lifted up and blew across the highway and crashed on houses.  Needless to say, yesterday was a wild ride of tornado sirens and everyone's new favorite obsession, watching weather porn.  At work, we were told to take shelter immediately, and everyone in my building huddled in the basement.  Fortunately, or unfortunately, I already work in the basement, so I spent the time at my desk, on the phone with my mom.

Fort Worth proper was spared, but it was a wild ride at my other place in Johnson county.  No damage, but more severe weather than here.  Everyone in my family is okay.  And from what I understand, there were no fatalities yesterday and few serious injuries.  Always something to be grateful for.

Take good care of yourself.  Be kind to others.  Stay Safe.

  2. Was thinking about you yesterday. Glad to hear you weathered the storms well. Gotta love working in the basement! The scenery isn't always the best, but where does everybody go when things hit the fan?

  7. My clinic is about 6 mi from that shipping yard; my son & I drove by it the next day. Pretty impressive devastation.

    (I think I spent a good portion of the next day answering emails from concerned friends/family members/acquaintances who wanted to make certain we were alright)
