Many are watching/hearing the news that tornadoes have hit Oklahoma. We are Oklahomans and grieve with those who have lost loved ones and their homes.
We are fine here in Skiatook (just outside Tulsa, OK), however, I did have 3 funnels make an appearance during the storm! God was watching over us....
It was actually really weird. I didn't even know there
was bad weather happening. The kids had just finished mowing our
property and had come in for showers. I had 2 grandkids here watching a
movie, so we didn't have the news on to even know there was bad weather coming. My son says..."There is a guy in on our drive sitting in his car." I go outside with my son to check it
out. The guy says, "I just love watching the clouds and saw your
vantage point was cool." He stayed a few moments, then left. I look up
at the clouds and see the rotation; tell my son go get the pantry/storm shelter ready
and get the kids in the pantry w/ bike helmets; and tell mom to get in the
pantry. In case you are wondering why bike helmets, I put them on my grandchildren to protect them from any possible falling debri.
I stayed on the drive trying to determine the weather...the clouds....I see 2 small funnels come down over the trees south of us, but they quickly sucked back up to the clouds. This is a first time ever here in at our Skaitook home! Then, a bigger funnels
starts to come but goes back up into the clouds. The wind hits hard and
strong....the clouds/storm moves east. This whole episode lasted
probably 20-30 minutes. Crazy, but that is Oklahoma weather for you. Anyway, we are fine, the storm is over
BUT there is so much damage in OKC. :( Time to pray for the needs of the people.
