    I like the energy and emotions portrayed in this one Donna.Like Timothy and Becca I'm not familiar with tornados but thanks for the succinct glimpse into it my dear.

    Tornadoes aren't common where I'm from... but you've captured the feeling of it and put me in your shoes. Like Becca it has intrigued me as well... but I suppose to people that are used to having them around it's really not all that "cool" anymore... Hope you guys stay safe!!

    I can't begin to imagine what's it's like to see a tornado approaching! YIKES! Mother Nature can be so sweet but at the same time be OH SO CRUEL! Stay safe dear Donna... we pray for you guys down there! Big hugs, and much love, Jack xoxox

    I live right smack in the middle of it!! I've seen many up close...too close! It's freaky to be so helpless in the face of something so powerful. But hey, you can't fight tornadoes...you just gotta dance with em.

    My goodness, I was taken in to the point of fear! The closest I have come to a Tornado! Impressive, dynamic, real!

    Sorry to hear you are part of this sad tale. It is very sad to hear about the back to back tornados and the loss of life. Prayers from Canada.

    So you were part of the storms too. All Oklahomans are. I don't know about you, but we spent the better part of a night in a backyard shelter, listening to the rain, hail and occasional tree branches hiting the door. We now keep our survival kit at hand. You've captured it nicely, especial the green sky. I hope you are well and safe... Jack

    And very good write. I've seen a couple of tornadoes in my life time. Nature is a very powerful force.
