House tornado

Pardon the crapitude of the shots, but Randal had a shaky hand 'cause last night Callahooga County was under a tornado warning. Egads & gasp!


















Hail, hail, the hail's all here.


















Damn precipitate splatter, ruined my chance at a Pulitzer.


















Objects in lens are not larger than they appear.
















 


Splish splash my car was taking a bath --



















-- but didn't stall, even the manly men of manliness in their extra manly SUV speed machines speeding up like a nuclear-powered steroid injection.

We know it was hail the size of baseballs. How else would the Indians get free batting practice? Hope they were all wearing their batting helmets though.

Maybe that was God's way of telling you to shape up, Randal. ;-)

With all the hot air in Chicago politics, we have the equivalent of an EF5 during every City Council meeting.

Tornado hit western wisco sunday night. I was drunk and I missed it. But I vaguely remember things spinning around a little more than usual.

demeur, practice? We're talking about practice? Everyone knows their hot start is due to sacrificing blonde virgins to Baphomet.

nunly, bah, I'm the most righteous dude around, mouse assassin!

thatgirl, fine, try and kill it!

okjimm, see how much damage you cause whilst blotto?

It hit my windows like a ton of bricks (actually, hail, as the windows are still here).

Here's a radar screengrab.

You're not in Kansas anymore.

Randal--

I don't see anything wrong with hail. Just think of it as a good opportunity to have a party, you supply the scotch, mother nature supplies the rocks!

Kinda like the old adage, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

P.S. The mouse was a terrorist, he had to die. At least I didn't blow his head off. Also, after further investigation, we found mouse porn stuck between the walls in his nest. Sicko mice.

if, I think our awnings saved the glass from a serious rupture, sounded like it, at least.

Tornado of souls!

tengrain, of course not, plus I lost my sparkly red pumps.

nunly, but I'm all out of scotch, why can't the rain be made of scotch?

Boy, between mice and ducks, I'm starting to wonder if you're one step away from exploding-frog serial killerdom.

What a storm. God must be punishing you Clevelanders for your sins.

Interesting pix, but you should've made like Gene Kelly for the camera.

Did it manage to douse the flames of the burning river? If you need a match for re-lighting I'll send you some.

Randal Graves said...

if, pope hats for everyone!

tom, at least we're not as homersexual as Missouri.

SWA, would that require an ability to dance?

susan, you Canadians & your potsmoking.
