Rough weather

The Dallas area was hit with bad weather yesterday. Anywhere between 6-12 tornados hit over the area. One hit the neighboring town of Forney. Thankfully there were no major injuries. Terrell missed the tornadoes, we got rain.


The Lady Tigers soccer team was scheduled to play Lovejoy in their playoff game last night at North Forney HS. It was postponed because of the weather.  They will play tonight, still at North Forney HS, beginning at 5:30.

My backyard yesterday afternoon
Terrell Tribune photographer and reporter Don J.  has a few photos posted of the damage in Forney

There are quite a few clips on you tube of the tornado as it hit Forney. 

Below is footage from WFAA of the tornado in the Lancaster area. You can see the tornado lift tractor trailers and toss them like they were Match Box cars.

I'm glad Terrell was spared. Tornados are a destructive force!

I have a friend who works at WFAA. The video they've been showing is unbelievable. Glad the twisters didn't hit Terrell.

Saw the videos! What a mess. I'm so glad that you were spared. And you probably needed the rain!
