Minneapolis Tornado

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

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.

it must have been an act of god that your house remained unscathed.

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.
