amen! thankfully, they were a little north of us. we lost power, but that was about it. talk about skeery, though. no deaths in Indiana, but Illinois wasn't so lucky. i believe 8 people died there when one of the tornadoes hit a bar.

It was Utica that was nailed. THe place wasn't so much a bar, as it was the main hang out/greeting place for the town. People for years would take cover in teh basement of the tavern, and this includes the people from the nearby trailer park. The basement completely collapsed on them, not just the upper floors. The trailer park wasn't touched. Total population of that town was about 1000 people, and the buildings that were destroyed/damanged were pretty much built before 1900. sigh

Which practically conceal its sex.
I think it clever of the turtle
In such a fix to be so fertile.
