This is the storm that's just hitting my house right now. The little bit of red just above the fence line is a lightning strike. A line of thunderstorms from Texas to Kansas hit this afternoon that spawned tornadoes in metro OKC, including one that was on the ground for ten minutes. There were no deaths reported so far and only three minor injuries, even though one man in a trailer was sucked through a window and thrown outside. The line has finally hit my little town, thankfully after dark where tornado activity is much less prone. I do have a storm shelter, but I don't think it will be necessary. However, with all the lightening, I think I will post this as quickly as possible and shut off my computer. The "storm season" is a month away.
