I received a phone call from my sister today that went something like this.....
sis: "Are you guys okay?"
sis: "Kirstin, do you not watch the news! There is a tornado in Vancouver" (said in kind of a smack yourself on the head way)
Me: "Uh....nope haven't turned it on recently"
Sis: "How is it that I am at work and know and you are right there and have no clue!" (she lives and works about an hour away from me)
Me: "uh...okay, I'll turn on the news".
I turned on the news and sure enough...there was a tornado! The area it hit was probably about 15 minutes from us, and I actually was planning on going shopping today and would have been right in the main area. They are saying it was possibly between an F0-F2..which is obviously the lowest, but for those of us in the NW who don't get tornadoes it would be a scary thing no matter what. It did quite a bit of damage. Last I heard the storm was heading East. Which is away from us. It apparently hit a little after 12:00 and around that time I actually noticed our sky darken quite a bit, but didn't pay much attention. So, gee, what an exciting day....glad I decided to stay home!
