Thursday Thunder!

Thursday Thunder, the Thursday edition of What's New Wednesday.  Honoring the weekly update of new inventory and also paying our respects to Mother Nature who graciously spared us in last evening's storm.

I was working away in the back office after I locked the front door determined to get What's New Wednesday posted before leaving for the day, slightly frustrated by Internet connection problems and also ATT iPhone challenges (where many of my photos reside).  To say I was focused on my task at hand, oblivious to my surroundings might be an understatement.

Yes, I was aware of the raining and wind outside, both were hammering the skylight above me.  Hmmmm, big storm.  But what is that noise, that whining sound?  Is it our AC?  Our lights? Have they over heated and started to buzz like the old halogen light bulbs?  Irritated I walked out to the showroom, turned the off the AC and the lights taking a quick glance outside at the weather hammering Irving Blvd.  That darn humming, it won't go away!   Oh well, back to my task of posting What's New Wednesday when the phone rings, it's my hubs who informs me there is a Tornado headed to Irving Blvd and the Medical District!  "The Storm Sirens are sounding...can't you hear them"???  (Ohhhh, that's what that noise is).  I look out the window again to see a picture very similar to the one above.  "It can't be that bad...I see blue sky".  (I am obviously an optimist.)

After a short deliberation on staying put or racing home, I chose racing home and no pun intended I literally raced the storm all the way home.  As I passed thru the intersection of Forest and Preston 820 AM WBAP Radio reports "The storm has traveled to north Dallas currently the center of the storm is just south of LBJ at Forest and Preston"...are you kidding me?

I run in the house, Ray has the news on and we see this photo below flashing before our eyes!  This could have easily been a photo of LHO had the storm touched down just a couple miles earlier. 

We are so thankful and send our thoughts and prayers to those affected by this damaging storm.
