Are we home, yet, Dorothy?

Tornadoes in California? Maybe in the central valley, but not very often (if ever) in the Bay Area. Yesterday was an exception. I was minding my own business, doing my early afternoon yoga:When I heard a rumble in the sky:What did I see?Yep, hunky clouds heading our way. Crazy lady said she hasn't seen clouds like these since her days in Colorado. Me? I just stared and scorned at her worried expression:I mean, there are at least 15 miles worth of trailer parks between her house and the tornado warnings. And, she knows what it's like to be trapped in a trailer park during a tornado storm. It wasn't fun hiding under the Chevy station wagon with her parents, brother and sisters. She did not appreciate the belching contests beneath a leaky oil pan. Anyhow, what are the odds of being hit in California?Okay, don't answer. I don't want to know.

I heard about that tornado moving stuff around down there in Californa!
How dare that tornado disturb you while your just minding your own business!
I think those clouds got lost and ended up in the wrong state!
Geeze, I sure am glad that old station wagon never flew off- the one that your mom was hiding under.
Enough is enough for this bazar weather- do you agree?

Fine, I won't answer, even though I live in Cali. I don't want to upset you. As a matter of fact, I wish you'd keep staring and scorning because it suits you.

We get a lot east and west of us, but the mountains really protect us from them. They are very scary. Stay safe!

Well, we get lots of tornado warnings here in the midwest but we sure were surprised to hear they were in CA and AZ too. Stay safe, they are not the kind of storms to mess with.
