It felt like Armageddon

Six tornado touch downs occurred in my part of Colorado and the Southern tip of Wyoming today.

Each system was very large and in the F3 category.

This is un-freaking heard of in our neck of the woods!

We are ok, but members of Casa del Meyer were in varying stages of lockdown at work, school and daycare today. And that was pretty dang scary.

After the weather cleared up this afternoon, we hightailed it to C-town to visit our family for an extended holiday weekend. Where it's flooding.

Always an adventure.

  1. Wow that is scary! I hope you stay safe and dry!!!

  2. I'm so glad you're okay! I thought of you immediately!

  3. I thought of you today. I'm SO glad you're o.k.

  4. Glad to hear that everyone is o.k.! I can't imagine how scare that must have been, especially considering that you weren't all together. Hugs to you!

  5. I kept getting text messages from friends and I thought they were joking around, little did I know?!


  6. Hi Red-
    Here from AllMediocre and I will return- I'm a Colorado girl misplaced . I can't wait to go through your archives a bit!

    Also, glad you're ok. Those tornados are scary!

  7. Hi. I hope you survived the 'naders we got on Friday, too! I don't think any touched down IN Cheyenne, but several were ripping up the country around us. So I just spent several hours in the basement listening to the hail and the guy from channel 5 telling us to stay safe.

  8. Wow! how scary! We were close to tornados about a month ago - nothing scarier to me..makes you feel so helpless.
