Funnel Cloud touched down! (XP and OT)

A Funnel Cloud touched down outside the big city near me last night (about 20 min away).

I am soooooo freaked by tornados, and that just blows me away (pardon the pun). Friends of mine saw it and took pictures - I just know if it had been me I wouldn't have been taking pictures, I'd be hiding! This isn't the picture my friend took (hers was on Facebook and super tiny when I tried to 'save as'), this is from the newspaper online:

Just a little too close for comfort!!!

Wow!! That is so scary!! We get tornado watches here sometimes and my husband totally freaks out. I probably would have tried to take a picture as well (Gwen, you're not alone!) - after my kids were in a safe place first. Wink

I'm glad it didn't amount to much and that everyone is Ok. That is a scary thought. I would also be in the picture taking crowd I think.

Scary! Tornadoes are so strange here that everyone still remembers the ONE that touched down 10 years ago randomly.

Yes, TOO close for comfort! Scary! I live in the "tornado alley" of America, but still get nervous when we have one touch down in our county.

So last week or so it was really stormy...(well by my house it wasn't but the rest of J-ville). DH left the house to go to Blockbuster since I had my eyes dialated that AM. On the way there he called me and said if your eyes can handle it go out side and look towards Shindler there was a "tornado". He actually turned that way to go try to get a pic! Our friend took pictures of one by the bridge. My mom works in downtown and called me to say they were moved to the interior of the building. There were a total of about 4 funnel clouds (waterspouts). Only 1 was confirmed a tornado.

It was pretty scary.
