Monday, and most of today was spent in front of the television watching news reporters track a super cell of storms racing towards Oklahoma City, where we have come to spend a couple of days with Terry’s oldest son, wife, and our two grandsons. We can bearly believe the weather that we are seeing here right now, truly wild! A number of tornadoes have touched down in outlying areas; strong winds of 70-80 mph have been reported; and large hail and heavy rain is occurring throughout several counties. All of this is certainly enough to keep anyone on edge, particularly those of us sitting in RV’s!
If this weren’t enough, at 8:45 pm we felt what we thought was a strong wind gust, but oh no, what we felt was another earthquake! This quake struck in the same area as the last one, about 50 miles from here and registered a magnitude 4.7. You just can’t make this stuff up! It is now 9:30 pm and we have thunderstorm warnings and a tornado watch until 4:00 am tomorrow morning. It is going to be a long night!
At some point I will write a post about time spent with family, really I will, as soon as Mother Nature finishes having her way with Oklahoma.

This weather is crazy. We had a tornado watch last night too. In the warehouse you could hear the thunder most of the night and boy did it rain. Things are calmer today, hope it is for you too!
We made it through the night unscathed! We were most worried about the large hail that was being reported and the strong wind bursts more than anything. Today is much calmer, although getting colder. Time to head south!
welcome to our part of the woods.
