__The tornados passed well to the north of us causing, though not to compare with Tupelo, severe damages to Springfield, Worcester, Munson and more towns and cities; sadly, four deaths. Here, near Plymouth, only some very severe thunder storms, and the weather bureau in Taunton recorded along the South Shore, 300 lightning strikes in a mere 15 minutes.
__This time in one's life... just one lightning strike.

tear away this history
lightning strikes

"Tornadoes" - the 'do' 'tear' a lot many i write south-west monsoon is active over Kerala-God alone knows,

Lightning -- frightens me, but they say- a human life is but a streak of lightning, without thunder,

it does make life feel more real and more fragile... brings us all closer to the edge of our own skin... one whim of nature, or even a whim of fate... at any time in one's life... just one lightning strike.

wishing you well... and safe.

We were under the watch, but it was cool here by late afternoon, so I wasn't too worried. We did get that weird yellow sky, though.

Glad you and yours are safe. I feel for the people caught in the wind.

So glad you and Kathy are okay. Such a horrific tornado season this year. Thoughts and prayers are with those who have been so tragically affected.

I have seen picture from town over there totally leveled, it's not mere history that is teared away, it looks like a culture that is uprooted - it cannot be easy to begin again

We lived with the fear of tornadoes when we lived in Chicago. We had many dinners sitting on the floor in our hallway! Scary!!
