We had some of the most severe storms I’ve ever experienced yesterday afternoon and evening. Hurricane-force winds (clocked over 80 MPH downtown), at least two tornadoes that touched down (one of them only a few miles from where Kelly lives). It was absolutely incredible to watch it all happen.

We were safe and secure at Kelly’s place last night. I have yet to see what my yard looks like when I get home this afternoon.
