my first tornado

well after 50 years i was in my first tornado while driveing my yj,,,

i was driving down my road when out of no where the winds just hit and trees started blowing down and some being sucked up into the sky..

thank goodness i had my top off and could see the trees falling at me and i was able to dodge them ..

and i have a huge mess to clean up i lost 2 pines that were over a 100 years old in my yard and a big walnut tree down on my father-in-laws house....also no power for 4 days and it over a 100deg,s..

Wow, that sucks to lose such big trees. Good luck with the clean up and remember it could have been worse.

did,nt see her--lol

and yes could have been way worse--it was pretty cool though actually, except for now cutting down the tree off my father-in-laws house--its a 105deg..thats why im on here now sipping some ice tea--lol

and it does suck about my pines--there is a pic. of jessie james by them, he use to pass threw here back in the day and these trees were only about 5 ft tall then..this property has been in the family for way over a hundred years dont recon anyone else but GOD has owned it..

anyway back to the chain saw....

sucks about the trees and houses, but least you made it out ok!

In 97 I was in a hurricane in north carolina. Neighbors house was cut into two by an uprooted oak tree.

In 05 i was 20' from a tornado. Crazy &#*#& lol
