Drove to Illinois to go to a horse show.  Loved watching the Lipizzans.  It almost didn't happen.  An hour and a half before the show a tornado blew through town.  We were in our hotel on the 3rd floor.  Sirens went off and announcements to take cover.  Those of us on upper floors had to go to the first floor bathrooms.  Everyone was freaking out but all I was worried about was whether the show would go on.  Remember, a tornado hit our town last week.  I'm so sick and tired of storms!  Anyway, the show went on indoors so all is well.

Maybe those tornados are following you.  Hey, don't come to Kansas City!!

lol.  just kidding.  That is some scary stuff!  And yes, once again, too close for comfort! 

I'm glad you are safe (x2) and that you enjoyed the horse show!

I am sorry about the tornadoes.  They are really scary.  I am glad you got to see the horse show though.

I know, I seriously thought of you as I was driving in Illinois.  Temple Farms is about 5 miles from Gurnee Mall.

My cousin lives in that area, and my ex's oldest sister did for many years.  That's about 1 1/2 hours (ish) northeast of me.

My dd's boyfriend was in town and we saw him on Sunday and he said his father does business with Temple Farms and his brother use to work there during the summer.  (He's from Racine)
