    Strange aftermath of yesterday's tornados in Houston

    There were several twisters in the Houston area yesterday. Where I work was hit with high winds that damaged the roof of the building, and we had water pouring through the ceiling. They still don't know if that was a tornado, but it was pretty scary. We all went underneath our desks when the lights went out, just before it hit. Before we had lost power, I was running GRLevel 3, a weather radar program, and could see a hook echo right on top of us. That is when I ordered everybody under their desks, right after we lost power.

    But that is not the strange part of what I am posting about. A tornado that touched down in west Houston severely damaged several homes. One of those homes had the roof ripped off, and most of the inside destroyed. Amidst all of the debris inside the home was the breakfast of the home's owner, a plate of eggs and bacon, toast, and a glass of orange juice, sitting on the dining room table, all untouched. While the news crew was there, the homeowner noticed the untouched breakfast, and proceeded to eat it while doing the interview. Even mother nature does not dare to mess with a man's bacon. LOL.

    That "like" was for you being all right.

    Not for you almost getting hit by a tornado!

    Apparently, that particular tornado just wasn't hungry. It probably already ate an entire cow before it got there.

    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Recall the picture of the sole surviving house in Galveston after Ike hit us. That was incredible.

    Re: Strange aftermath of yesterday's tornados in Houston

    Strange stuff. In 1977 or 78 (can't remember) I was helping family clean up after a flood in Pa.
    My uncles piano was sticking out of a wall half way onto the porch, if the porch had still been there.
    Next to the piano always stood an aluminum music stand which was used by friends playing with him.
    The stand never moved and according to my uncle and church choir members who'd been practicing
    the night before the flood, the music on the stand was still open to the same page. 300lb piano
    vs 8oz music stand, go figure.

    Damn - Who the hell in the Houston area asked Mother Nature for an encore? I'm gonna kick his ass. LOL.



    Anyways, we could definitely use the rain.
