Remember this photo from last year?
That's the un-retouched version.
Here's the version with the contrast adjusted...
so you can see the tornado.
The above tornado was on the KS/OK border on June 7, 2010,
a Monday evening, while we watched from our front porch.
Not a very scary tornado as tornadoes go,
but it was adrenalin-producing for us.
There were tornadoes all over our area on that day last year.
Today, we are in a "high probability of a tornado" zone.
Dr Greg Forbes of The Weather Channel puts us at 8
for high tornado risk, out of a scale of 0-8.
Last year I wasn't working and hubby had just gotten home from work. This year, we are both working 2nd shift. Storm activity is supposed to fire up around 2:00 (CT) this afternoon, about the time we are headed to work.
I'm praying that our house is still standing when we get home tonight, that our dogs and horses will be ok tonight, and that the towns around us are safe and sound.
The bulls-eye area is a pretty small and condensed area, from Oklahoma City to Wichita, and we are smack-dab in between those two cities.
Keep us in your thoughts, and let's hope we don't have any repeat monster tornadoes today, like the rest of the U.S. is having.
