Ok, I'm a bit calmed down now that the power is back on and the storms seem to have moved on. But, I was freaking out for a while. I was at work when the sky just got so dark, and the wind was blowing every which way...I couldn't leave until 9:00 and between 8 and 9 we heard that there were tornados touching down all around us, in a 30 mile radius. Now, we live in the mountains, and tornados are NOT common here! I leave work and call hubby...he is a volunteer fire/rescue, and he is out in all of this moving fallen trees! He told me there was no power when he left, but told me to listen to the scanner (hello! The scanner doesn't run on batteries!) The power came on about 15 min ago, and I tried to call Chip, but no answer on his cell. The storms were nasty....lightening dancing all around, and I know a few things were hit. I'm just worried right now...please tell me I'm over reacting. My MIL doesn't answer her phone either (they are both volunteer fire/rescue).
