"There is a tornado on the lake!"

Thunderstorm approaches

So as everyone on campus was waiting in the FEMA shelter/Cultural Arts Center someone burst into the main hallway to announce that a tornado appeared over the Lake... you know, the one right next to the college...

While I am highly doubtful that an actual tornado touched the banks of Longview Lake, the police and administration were taking zero chances.

And so that is how I spent two hours in our emergency shelter playing Scrabble and waiting for the official tornado warning to go away.

We hit the basement here on the Plaza. First time ever.

We are all lucky this cell didn't spawn an F level tornado on ground that went all the way through the center of the city. Which is exactly where the storms path was tracking.

Very very lucky.
