    Wow, at least it didn't get blown away. My dad lives in St. Petersburg. He's been getting intermittent power there for a while now. Glad you and your plants are alright though!

    Tornadoes are not good.

    Glad that you and your family are safe Ahmad.

    Sometimes I miss living in the south and sometimes I don't. I'm glad the damage seems mild.

    The Nepenthes tipped over and got uprooted. I had to clip off a lot of damaged leaves and repot the plant.

    Wow. I'm glad you are ok. I've always wanted to SEE a tornado. Not be in it...just see it and photograph it or film it. They fascinate me.

    PAK its not fun...ill tell you that. even just seeing it is horrifying because of the things you can imagine going on at ground zero....
    having been through about 8 tornadoes myself(lived in florida for 14 years), i know that now when i visit in florida and we have a tornado working, i dont screw around....we got ourselves in some bad situations from just ignoring them.

    Glad you're ok Ahmad! I got scared yesterday, it got so dark and erie! I took my pets into the bathroom with me because I really wasn't sure if I was going to get hit by the tornado or not. We didn't get much damage, just some small trees down and branches everywhere. Not looking forward to hurricane season.
    Great Googly Moogly!

    Beware of the yellow snow!
