My Day Yesterday

note: You might want to pause the video below until you get there. It starts automatically.

I thought yesterday was just going to be your average day. Work, followed by Greg's dentist appt, home to do grad work, etc. HOWEVER, as we were leaving work things got hairy windy DARK and rainy....REALLY windy, REALLY DARK, and REALLY RAINY.

This is where we where...sitting in a car, in a parking lot.
Watching sheds fly through the parking lot at Lowes into parked cars.
Feeling my car shake and wobble as the winds tried to pick it up...yes pick it up.

You can find the WHOLE story here. Basically we've heard it was a tornado...and I was in a car. I've never been anywhere remotely close to a tornado, and I would prefer to never do it again. I was terrified. I had visions of my car bring picked up and spun around and flying through the air. or rolling across the parking lot like the sheds. Had I been able to focus for a mere 30 seconds, I would have got out my phone to take pictures and video. But I couldn't focus for even 5 seconds on anything other than the hail that was hitting the car, or the trashcan that was blown into us, or the wind that was whipping around us, or the dark of night that occurred at 3pm in the afternoon.

The only picture I thought to take was after the storm. (I think the video shows ALOT more)

Basically, from here on out when I hear "Severe Thunderstorm Warning..or Watch" that is what I'm going to think of and it won't be pretty.

  1. Oh my goodness! I am glad you are okay, but what an ordeal. Yikes, yikes, yikes.

    PS - I am still confused about your news... do you have a garden now? Happy Friday!
