What It Looked Like

Here it is... our tornado:

I don't know who the crazy people are who stay outside to take pictures of these monsters when they roll through town, but I guess I'm glad someone does it. It makes the following images make more sense...

Those pictures above were taken by my cousin, who lives on a farm just east of Memphis. This picture below was taken a few blocks from my high school, and you can see one of the tornado funnels just forming in this image:

I don't suppose there's any point in my re-posting more images of the damage, which is all over the Internet today... but it was bad. The body count from the storm has been rising all day.

Later tonight, I'll try to post something that involves reflection... but like everybody else right now, I'm just trying to get my head around what happened.

I am so glad you are okay! That thing was vicious! We had a very bad storm that night that sent all the ambulances, police cars, and firetrucks in Bloomington all over town, but nothing that happened here was even remotely close to the damage your area saw...
