    Sure hope all are safe and well. I was looking at the pushpin map and see we have quite a few members in or close to the affected area.Chime in if ya can and let us know your ok.

    Looks like the system has picked up strengh and heading towards south Texas and Louisiana. Keep an eye on the sky all, I don't know why, I just got a bad feeling about this one.

    I live about 10 minutes from where the tornado touched down in Haltom city. It did a lot of damage to a Minyards grocery store and some houses, and other places. My son was not far from the tornado when it first came down and he got pictures on his cell phone. I personally have never seen a tornado. My place was not hit but the hail busted the windshield in my truck.

    We had some strong winds and extreme lightning around 3 AM. Tornado's were reported about 15 miles northwest of us along with some hail. Seems to be about over with here now and I'm glad of it. We got 3 inches of rain in about 30 minutes.

    we're just getting a piece of it down here this afternoon. They're calling for high winds (jeez we don't know anything about those!) a ton of rain and tornado warnings, rare in the Keys. I wonder if I should delay my smoke until Monday.....
