    I was away. According to my wife, there was great rumbling sound and more wind than she saw in any of the four hurricanes that hit us a few years ago.

    Tornadoes are rather rare in Florida, aren't they? I'm glad it appears to have been a weak one and nobody was hurt. I was working for a news broadcaster when that big one destroyed Greensburg, KS a couple of years ago; it's terrifying how much power those storms have and very fortunate that they tend to be limited in scope.

    Florida gets more than their fair share of tornadoes unfortunately, including a rather spectacular storm system that wrought havoc on The Villages a few years back (my inlaws live up there). They aren't the kind of monster storms the midwest sees, but we are the lightning capital of the planet, so the conditions often get ripe for a twister. This one was mild in effect, if indeed it was a tornado and not just a brief squall of hurricane proportions, but it successfully took down every remaining sand pine in the neightborhood. Those trees weathered four consecutive hurricanes some years back.

    I've lived in the mid west, most recently in Omaha, and I've witnessed the ominious power of the storms up there. Terrifying is right. I'll take my petulant, semi-tropical Florida any day

    Glad you're cool, bro. I've dodged two twisters already this year...both before spring ever started.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Good to hear everyone's OK, we get tornadoes here in Ft. Wayne on occasion - I think 2 or 3 since I've lived here.
