    Must be the ones that came through Northern CA recently!!! I love storms. We lost one of our ancient acacias in the last two storms. Barely missed taking out out barn.


    Hope you guys are hunkered down.

    ya--Austin dodged the first wave with only some minor hail damage. Tornados in only a few rural areas so far. Round 2 on the way !! :rock:

    I gotta admit--I like em too ! They remind you of who's the boss. It still amazes me that people expected authorities to somehow be stronger than Katrina. I guess the concept that the is something stronger than man is just too far fetched for some.
    Plan away but nature still owns us.
