Good christ on a pony - they're saying at least an EF4, maybe larger.

and it's just gobbled up energy from another storm so it's refueling. Holy Hell!

I'm okay! Just talked to Trish... the OFG household is kinda in the crack between the Piedmont tornado and the one that's headed up from Chickasha along the highway... that will probably go to the south of us...

Just saw that two TRAIN LOCOMOTIVES have been blown over! Lots of damage, lots of ground/trees/power poles are being destroyed. Trailers, houses... it's ugly.

I'll check in as I can...

3" of rain in about 30 minutes... my two fifty-gallon rain barrels are now officially FULL. In case you've ever wondered: rain chains work VERY well.

The line has passed us but is still bearing down on many, many Oklahoma population areas. The tornado warnings run solid from the Red River, south, almost to the Kansas border to the north.

Whew.

Send good thoughts to those still under the gun... and especially to Joplin, who has to suffer through another night of this crap before we're done.

Thanks, y'all, for worrying about me, too. Loves ya.

We had an F2 tornado in a county west of Nashville yesterday. Many houses damages, but no one killed that I'm aware of.

I read "Ok city tornado" and thought "that stupid thing better stay clear of OFG if it knows what's good for it."

Good to hear you're okay :)

Hang in there, Shakey, and stay safe - we'll be thinking of you and keeping our fingers crossed.

Thanks for letting us know you're okay, OFG!
