Last night was nerve wracking to say the least. I knew it was going to be bad after watching leading edge of the storm come in. There was already some rotation and a lot lightning. The clouds themselves looked almost like bubble wrap. I which now I had taken a picture because it’s kind of hard to discribe.
The first of the warnings came down at about 8:40 for Dallas. The storm was still about an hour away from us, but the sirens starting going off about 20 minutes later. Thankfully, Jason was safely home by then. We grabed blankes, pillows, a flashlight, and the weather raido, then headed into the hallway with Hannah in
tow. We had several periods of heavy rain and rain, with some small hail tossed in. Surrounding areas got hail as big as grapefruits, which you definetly don’t want to get hit with. The Rangers game got delayed twice. I watched on the news as they hearded fans into the dugouts as tornado sirens went off there as well.
Our tornado sires went off constantly until about 10:40 when the strong part of the storm passed. I don’t think I’ve ever heard them go that long. A second wave of storms, moving faster than the first, came through with higher winds and more rain…but were as severe as the first. The city of Kaufman seemed to be the worst hit, being that they got a least two tornados, but I don’t know if there was any major damage.
Here’s some video of some of the tornadoes:
