When I say I've never seen this before...

March 12, 2023 08:18AM
I mean not anywhere which includes lots of video of actual Tornados. Not sure how to explain it.

This was like a tornado in the sky but it was the entire cloud... which had to be maybe 15.... maybe 30 miles in diameter. Is that how tornados start in the clouds?

My son-in-law was sent on an errand right when the storm was hitting and as he was driving it began to hail.. so much that the road turned white and his car lost traction and began to slide.... so did the firetruck ahead of him.

by the way.... this was the first tornado warning we've ever received.... or is it 'alert'... I'm not sure. I was wearing my hearing aids when it came in and I thought my brain had exploded. laughing smiley
