COME ON FAT LADY...SING!
This weather activity in Oklahoma needs to be over but I fear the fat lady won't be singing until the end of June at least. Yesterday Ron and I were running with the big dogs (big tornadoes) as we drove 80 miles to Tulsa at 9AM for an outpatient surgery. We arrived in Tulsa safely and were heading home by 4PM. It seems everyone on this earth was trying to go east away from the Oklahoma City/Moore, OK tornado that was now heading our way. Tornadoes were popping up all around us but we managed to get in the door of our home before the severe thunder storms started here and a tornado hit Twin Bridges State Park, just 7 miles east of us. I was in our new bathroom hiding in the shower stall while Ron was in the den, in his recliner eating a bowl of grits. Poor fellow had not been able to eat or drink before his procedure and we were rushing too hard to get home, so he wasn't leaving his bowl of grits for anything.
Our family has been threatened beginning with our daughter in Edmond/Guthrie area on Sunday, son and grandchildren in Broken Arrow and Tulsa to our Oklahoma City brother, sil, nieces and nephews and we all give thanks for escaping the monsters.
The devastation in Moore, OK is unfathomable. Recovery and discovery continues. More tornadoes forecast for today.
