We awoke at 11:30 p.m. last night to thunder, lightening, high winds and hail. When we went to bed at 10:00 p.m. it was raining, we fell to sleep and then awakened to a major storm blowing through! A EF1 tornando touched down in Broken Arrow, which is about 20 miles away and lightening struck an apartment building here in town, ignighting a fire. Scary stuff! All on the one year anniverary of the worst ice storm/power outage in Oklahoma history. It shut down the metro-area for nearly two weeks with power outages, debris, etc.
Right now it's 30 degrees and the weather channels are predicting snow. I am okay with that, as long as we don't have tornados. It's what happens when we get that warm, moist air from the south and the cold, dry air from the north all meeting over the midwest. What's really bizarre is that we were in the mid-60's and sunny yesterday.
