Okay in OK

I am still here. Happy Tuesday didn't end up that way. What a day! It started out rather nicely, another no coat morning. But all of that changed in a blink of an eye.

This is what I did for the rest of the day. Warnings on TV, sirens blaring, in and out of my safe place with the cats.

I kept an eye on these two clouds approching each other from opposite sides. They say that is when they start to swirl ( I don't like the word rotation since moving here) And then the darn thing drops out of the sky.

We got away with only marble size hail. Target, Hobby Lobby and Chuckie Cheese were hit hard.
Then later after dark a huge tornado hit down south of us and so far 15 people were killed.

On a brighter note I got my Valentine's in the mail. This was my favorite. Front above and back below.

Have a safe and artful Wednesday

I'm glad you are safe! We had a tornado watch several years ago and I'm in Southeastern Pennsylvania so it's not usual to get them. however, me and the fam cowered in the basement for most of the night with the radio. lol It was frightening. I can't imagine living somewhere where that is the norm. Anyway, glad you are ok and lovely valentines.

Glad to hear that you made it thru ok. I lived in Wichita for 6 years... many a night spent in the basement. I can't believe how weird the weather is this year!
Your Valentine was beautiful!
Stay safe...
