calm and tornado-free
Whew. What a morning.
I got up very early this morning because I couldn’t sleep. As I was surfing the web my phone and iPad started making alert noises for a tornado warning. Over the next half hour or so there was a lot of rain and wind but I didn’t hear anything that sounded too serious. When a bit later I turned on the TV the stations were in panic mode, announcing that some tornados had set down and there was some damage.
Siesta Key got hit with a lot of property damage and there was some loss of life in a town to the NorthEast. If I connect those two locations the tornado must have passed about 4 or 5 miles to the East of where I live.
The Tampa TV stations are on now with video of the damage.
Here is a nice relaxing photo of some flowers.
