Minneapolis Tornado

I think there was a Tornado on my block tonight. Here are some photos:

A tree fell on our south neighbors house

our house.jpg
Our house (in the middle on the right) unscathed - probably because the tree in front of our house had dutch elm disease and was cut down a couple years ago.

Just a couples house north of us next to the park; a guy was sitting in the cab of this truck when the tree fell on it. He was waiting out the storm to play a football game in the park. He's OK. They interviewed him on the news.

Dramatic, eh? Everyones OK. They didn't officially say there was a tornado, but only the one block to the east of us also had trees down, everywhere else is just wet.

I resisted making the same sarcastic comment in my post, I don't know why...I'm glad you made it!

Thanks for the kind words!

Actually, I think God was trying to get you. He just has lousy aim.

LOL - a few of my neighbors are atheists too - maybe god just wanted to smite the whole block.
