A TORNADO, A FIFTH WHEEL AND FOUR MILES
Today began with a four mile walk and the I settled into a normal quiet day. The quiet lasted until about three this afternoon.
I had walked to the Camping World Store to replace a retractable leash that broke on my walk with Oliver and Olivia this morning.
Returning to the motorhome, dark clouds formed in the west and a gentle rain began to fall. The rain turned from gentle to a huge downpour just after I shut the door.
Turning on the television, we find the screen filled with tragic scenes of the tornado destruction that took place just miles northwest of our location.
Below, you see one of the tragic scenes that was broadcast from where one of the twisters hit.
A fifth wheel was picked up and it landed on the roof of the house. This surely gives us an appreciation of the strength of a tornado. Thankfully, no one in either the home or the fifth wheel were injured.
Our rain at our location was just the outer edge of the storm. We were very fortunate as we have been for the last two days.
Looking at Weather Bug, it appears that there will be more storms in the next few days. Ask me if we are ready to leave Indiana!
Only one problem. While parked at Camping World, a huge, really huge wrecker came to pick up a totaled motorhome. After hooking the rig to the wrecker, the driver proceeds to back the motorhome into my Miata, my baby.
Now, we wait for repair. When repair is completed, we are out of here.
The plus point? We get to see family more. THAT is a good thing.
Thanks to all who are making purchases through my blog. Every purchase is appreciated!
How much did you exercise today?
God bless y'all!
