Tornado you say?

Wow, that was a doozy. It didn't last long, but it sure made an impression.

I remember thinking a few times yesterday that it looked like rain, but figured it was just a grey fall day. We spent much of the day outside, so I was happy not to have to deal with umbrellas and rain covers and being splashed by passing cars. But around dinner time, just after J had met his girls at the park and as we were walking home together, we heard thunder, saw lightning and thought...perhaps we should toss the girl into the stroller and skidaddle. Thank goodness for aligning stars. We managed to walk in the front door approximately 3 minutes or less before all climate-related hell broke loose.

The sky was actually green. My first thought was: Hey, doesn't the sky turn green during a tornado? My second thought was: This would make a great video! Enjoy...

Of course, the video doesn't do it justice. It was violent, it was loud, it was a bit scary, and it was all over in about 15 minutes. Our couch was soaked, there are trees down everywhere, but otherwise it's a beautiful day and you would never know that trailer parks were flying through the air last night. Just keeping it exciting here in NYC.
