Happy Sizdeh Bedar

One of my favorite holidays!

Part of me wishes I had been in Iran instead of in a tornado shelter with my heart beating fast and the power out. Woke up to find our most beautiful tree snapped in two, part of the roof gone, and our neighbor's fence just sliced at the base like someone sawed it off.

First time I have been scared in a storm since I was a child.

Hope everyone is okay thereabouts. I'm in Indiana...we personally got missed, but it was a "doozie" as they say here. They are terrifying. However, prefer them (with radar on radio/TV) to earthquakes....tsunamis

Thanks, we were lucky too. It's just we could hear that freight train rumble they say accompanies tornados.

I don't visit for awhile and you get socked by a Midwestern tornado!

What a world.
