So I guess since hurricane season is almost over and we haven't had any... nature thought it would be a good idea to throw some tornadoes our way. These are just some pics here in Pensacola, FL. I didn't even realize it made World Wide News till we started having family call us yesterday to make sure we were okay.... which we are. I lived in Oklahoma for 2 yrs and never saw anything... so this was interesting. 4 tornadoes and a waterspout hit Pensacola yesterday and we got a little over 13 inches of rain... the town next to us received 27 inches!! Just thought I'd share pics...

So glad that you are all ok and those are great pics but sad to see the destruction.  As a kid I saw twin tornadoes and it was amazing; they never did hit anything just some prairie land.   Since then tornadoes have fascinated me but I always hate to hear that they hit where people live.

Those are really great pictures.  Tornadoes are never fun, neither are hurricanes.  We lived in Indiana and Michigan most of our lives and have always had tornadoes, even have tornado drills in school.  When we lived in VA we went through two hurricanes and those are no fun either!  Glad everyone is okay!

So glad you are okay! We get the water spouts and mini tornadoes down here too. They are amazing in that they can totally tear up one house and the one next door is untouched. freaky stuff! I heard the one in Pensacola went right through  a daycare there. Scary...Scary

Haven't had a hurricane yet since I've lived here... not that I want one! We use to have tornado drills in TX when I was in school there. Also at the nursing home I worked at in OK... so glad we never actually had to deal with one... it was a LOT of WORK and a mess just doing the drill.

Tornadoes have always fascinated me too, not sure why... just got some really good pics and thought I'd share.

Yeah... everyone from that daycare was okay... I would have been sooo scared for my girlie if she went there. The only thing I don't understand... is we had FOUR different tornadoes and yet the news is only reporting 1 or 2... 4 different parts of town... and then the water spout... which is just amazing. No one here was killed and only 4 people had to go to the hospital for injuries. I saw something about some northern states that got hit recently and they did have a few casualties... :(
