I can’t believe I am writing this again, but a tornado went through today. This time there is a lot of damage to property in our area, thousands without power and we were, again, very fortunate. Nothing was damaged for us this time around, but there is significant damage where the tornado touched down short distances from us.
I have lived here my entire life and I have never experienced a summer with this type of tornado activity. In fact it is rare we have tornado sightings, much less have them touch down on the ground. This is quite a shock for us all.
And, of course, our youngest daughter(who just got back from being a camp counselor in the U.P.) had things to do today and took off in her car. Which promptly died along side the highway. During the severe weather. I was a wreck!
We just returned from towing it back home from it’s place of death along side the highway.
People are idiots.
There we were, attempting to get the dead car on the car dolly, and vehicles were flying past us at 85 miles per hour.
Inches from us.
It was unsettling and I have a tremendous respect for road construction workers. What a harrowing experience that must be everyday. I could not stand the stress.
