Tornado in NY?

tornado-ny1

OK. Mah name’s not Dorothy.

I sure aint twelve years old and the “tornado” last night did not transport me or Toto to a strange town outside of Kansas.

But the wind storm we had did manage to blow off rooftops, down nearly every tree in the ole neighborhood, knocked out several phone and power lines, and sadly even caused one fatality.

A huge tree limb collapsed seconds after I pulled my car up a few feet, at the roaring request of mah dear friend sittin in the passenger seat hollerin: “Angel, Pull up , Pull up!”

Apparently the meteorologist jury is still out on whether this is bein classified as a “tornado” but the “storm” offered us 109 mile per hour winds.

And I swear I saw a tornado.tornadoclip-art-3

    I’m glad you’re safe and unharmed. You can replace possessions, but you cannot replace your life.

    Stay safe. Have a good weekend.

    Oh wow! I’m glad that first picture wasn’t your car! Gaia has spared you her wrath! Do you recycle?

    I am glad that you are alright Angel. Years ago, I was a medic on the Rescue Squad when a microburst blew through the county and the damage was substantial so I have an idea about what you lived through. Again, I am glad that you came through no worse for wear.

    Angel! I’m SO very glad you stayed safe! That had to be frightening! Hopefully the damage can be repaired quickly and easily.

    About two years ago this month we had a high wind storm that left us with no power for nine days. That was a trip; like camping in your own house. I was on the way home from work; a trip that normally took me 20 minutes took 90 due to traffic and downed power lines. Then, we opened up all the windows to prevent breakage. The dust and dirt flying through the air was insane! We had enough sticks and branches in our yard to burn campfires for the whole week!

    Glad you are safe and sound. Thanks for the pics- always the best! Have a good weekend.

  6. KingShamus says:

    That’s some crazy stuff, Angel.

    Stay safe and be well, mi amiga.

    heard about them storms up your way – - glad you and everyone else is ok….unusual weather patterns across the northern tier…..meanwhile we’re baking down here in the texas desert – 98 again today!!

  8. Bunni says:

    Wow, you weren’t kidding. I hope this isn’t your car. God was watching out for you, Angel dear, as you know. If you had been in that car, wow.
    You should buy some lotto tickets.
    God Bless and have a nice weekend. Happy Holidays.

    Oh Angel, is that your car? I know that tornadoes are something new for you there in New York. We have them all the time here in the South. Scary stuff. No predicting exactly where they will go. Hubby watched the radar and bow/hook and is pretty good at predicting if we are in a direct path or not.

    Take care.

  12. z says:

    OH, MY GOSH! I’m so glad you and yours are okay, Angel!! What a storm!
    I must just add that I LOVE THOSE OLD BUILDINGS in your pictures…being from LA, that really wonderful old type of building really appeals to me…beautiful facades, etc….
    That car isn’t YOUR car, I hope? xxx have a blessed weekend…stay out of wind :-)

    So very glad to hear you came thru the storm unscathed. I sure would miss the wit, charm and insight that you bring to us bloggers and followers.

    Being a Redneck and all, I find G-d in pretty much every thing (yah think that’s why the libs despise me?) and I am thankful G-d gave you a friend to speak at the very moment that was needed.

    You folks sure got a bunch of sticks laying around, so I figger y’all might pick some up and use them. There is a Holiday coming up, from my limited understanding, that is sorta camping out in tents and celebrating the transitory state of this life we understand it to be. Might as well build a big bonfire, roast the fatted calf, give praise and remember that it is G-d’s grace that cares for us.

    Okay I’m a blow hard and talk tooooo much, I’ll subside and will give thanks you are still well after last night.

  14. Christopher says:

    Angel, I am happy to hear and see you are ok! 109 mph is wicked!

    (p.s., You manage to be fashionable no matter the event!)

  15. Karen Howes says:

    How awful! I’m glad you’re okay, though…

  16. Paul Champagne says:

    Glad you’re okay … have a great weekend

  18. Kid says:

    I’m glad you and friends are Ok. Cars come and go eh?

  19. Matt says:

    Glad you’re OK, Angel.

    Hate to tell ya, but Chrome keeps telling me that your site is hosting malware. saying something about blogrolling.

  20. Angel says:

    THANKS SO MUCH SWEET FRIENDS! :) ..AND ..NO..THANKS TO MY FRIEND HOLLERIN AT ME TO MOVE UP!…THAT IS NOT MY CAR.. MY car is safe and sound too! lol :)

  21. Layla says:

    Wow! I feel like I have been really sheltered. I have been so wrapped up with my law books I did not even know this happened. Thank God you listened to your friend and pulled your car up! That is unreal for NYC. I am just happy you are safe and well!

    God bless you! :)

    [...] Angel was in the big storm that hit NY.  Take a look at her pics, and her squished car. [...]

  23. Claudia says:

    What a dangerous moment! I’m glad you’re OK now. And that your car is also OK!! :lol:

  24. Always On Watch says:

    Microbursts can do as much damage as tornadoes and hurricanes, albeit in a limited area! Mr. AOW got caught in one some years back. Eerie!

    Glad that you’re safe, Angel.

  25. MK says:

    Good heavens Angel, hope none of those was your car. Hang on to something sturdy and bolted down please.

  26. Karl M says:

    GOD in control again…
    just a reminder to those on Earth…
    He watching and taking names!!!!!

  27. Terry_Jim says:

    During the frequent T-storms here in the midlands,
    I carry rocks in my pockets so I dont blow away.

    ;-)

    Take care there, Angel

  28. Dapoppins says:

    Course I heard about that here on the news. I live in the Pacific Northwest where we aren’t suppose to get tornado either… I am glad you are safe and everyone you know is okay!!!
