Coming home from the store! They didn't hit the ground, but the sirens were going off! 

Tornado season is here in Oklahoma! 

Now there's one on the ground like 4 miles from us! 

This is what it looks like across the street from us. Isn't it beautiful? That big cloud to the right produced a tornado, the other one is to the east of us and I can't get a pic. 


Holy crap! An F4 tornado is on the ground. They're telling people leave their homes and out run the storm. That's just insane! I pray for the people in those towns that they stay safe and find a safe place to stay!

That is so cool momma! Where I live we don't see a whole lot of interesting weather and I'm definetly a Storm Lover LOL. But please watch your safety as well with those but hey Great post!

BTW please send some of those cool storms this way

Thank you. I love storms, clouds and tornado season. It's crazy I know, but it's just so fascinating and amazing and exciting when storms like this come through. I love it, even though its kind of scary.

I don't think we get used to as much as we learn when we are really in danger. This tornado was 3 miles west, and 4 miles north and was traveling. North so we weren't in any danger from it. We learn all about these storms, what the clouds look like, how big the danger area is and we adjust accordingly. i just find them beautiful and fascinating.

We're still watching the news about this. We're in OK too. The storm passed over us and didn't drop a tornado on our heads, Thank God.
