thunder lightning tornado alley

great big storms coming through okc tonight... I got back from the gym and had dinner by 7pm and then went over to A's house to take her a few issues of TIME OUT New York magazines that I get in the mail. She and the wife are going to NYC tomorrow so I thought they might find some stuff to do etc.. came home and began to survey and walk around my yard some, then the winds started blowing, sun shining from the west but some clouds getting dark in the north coming over my neighborhood, but no wait, that was pushed away by a separate storm blowing up north from the south.. so I stood out and watched the clouds blow around and looked for any circulation type stuff, and after a while some rain, then all the sirens were going off in town. I kept outside since it was still mainly right over us and either to the north or east... I stood out on the sidewalk staring at the skies for while, other neighbors doing the same, coming in and outside checking the sky and going back in to watch the news on tv etc... there was some tornado north of okc but nothing near where I live. and luckily no hail either, okc had baseball size hail come through tearing up car windshields and even a hotel northside had windows busted out. My buddy S in N okc had two storm windows busted out etc.. whew, what a night. now I'm about to crash and sleep with the wonderful rain and thunder going on all outside. nothing puts me to sleep faster. :) only thing could be better would be a nice strong man in bed to cuddle up with.... ahhh. nothing doing. I have only 2 more days of school left, woot woot! tomorrow I'll be boxing some stuff up between classes and getting everything ready and stored away so that Friday all I have to do is CHECK OUT. :)

so glad you and the flowers are OK! after a gorgeous day, we had a storm come out of nowhere at supper time and lost power for 4 hours. spent an hour resetting clocks, timers and electronic toys. ugh!
