We have another evening of being in a Tornado Watch. It's only effect until midnight. We are also in a severe thunderstorm watch with winds greater than 60 mph and hail larger than tennis ball size possible. I sure hope not! The watches should expire before I go to bed, so hopefully a quiet night for sleep.
Many years ago, when we had only lived in this house a short while, there was a small tornado that went right by our place. It turned over our camping trailer that was parked by the back door and blew it up against the door. It destroyed a neighbors grain bins and drove a steel post through another neighbors steel building. We were getting ready to leave on a camping vacation, so that really put a damper on things. I think my husband set the trailer back up with the tractor, fastened the refrigerator back in the wall, replaced the glass and off we went. We used it for many years after that.
