This is what the skies looked like in my front yard the day the tornado hit in Edmond. I love clouds like this. On a serious note, the same line of storms hit 90 miles south of OKC in a little town called Lone Grove, right at sundown and killed eight people in a trailer park. The town has been devastated but Oklahomans have a seemingly unending ability to dig deep, pull together and help each other again, again, and again. In Edmond, a mini market in the neighborhood, when they got their power back, provided free hot food to the first responders or anyone who had been displaced by the storm. The Red Cross set up a shelter the night of the tornado but by the 10 p.m. news, they had shut it down because everyone had been provided a home in which to go stay.
