    Texas tornadoes

    The first warning I heard on the radio was for Gun Barrel City. I immediately thought of Jackie and I hope you didn't get any damage. Everything but heavy rain missed us by about 9 miles to the northeast. I drove up to Eustace this morning to FM 2709. 2 houses were heavily damaged and the path was very destructive. Huge trees sawed in half.
    My buddy and coworker went to check on his grand dad who lives in Canton this morning. He is okay. He went to see if he had roof damage etc.
    Just hope everyone is okay.

    We skated thru. Without power since yesterday at 3:30 a blessing I guess because we had no TV nor Internet so no idea of how close it came.
    3 3/4" of rain and high wind took a toll on the corn but I stood it back up the best I could this morning. Have the generator going and all is closing in on normal. Power may be 2-5 days before repaired.

    How you make it the bad weather?

    We got some rain and wind. No a lot or very bad.
