Blogging is a Moving Meditation.

BLOGGING as a MOVING MEDITATION: Liminality's thin passage untangles as it weaves, fits in the ineffable nooks and crannies of my heart's prayer wall, like the cracks in pavement, mile markers on the road, windblown whimsical napkin poems written in eyeliner.

Yesterday's Semi-tornado

Ok- here is a pic that some one took of the storm that went thru Austin last night.
Phil and I were at Derek & Amy's when it hit.... (12:30 AM) We had come back from looking at a house that Phil and i are considering buying! Soooooooooo - we're just hanging out talking - and i was doing some triage on Derek's eye- when all of a sudden we heard the hail banging hard! Next thing we know... the winds were ripping through and the windows were rattling! It was INTENSE! As soon as it was over Derek and i went on a little RECON to see what happened- and it really was a sight! Derek kept ribbing me that it had to do with Phil and I moving to Austin and the Atmospheric Shifts in the Heavenlies! I Ain't taking the blame...! I said semi-tornado, because according to the news- the way the trees were twisted at the top... they think it was a tornado that hovered just above the treetops but didn't touch down! So much for our second week in Austin! Things are "a shifting"!
Just thought i'd share it with ya all....

    Glad to hear you are safe! We had tornados some days ago also. There were 4 that came through Guilford County, one visited the Airport & Timco (where I work). It damaged buidlings near Colfax, killed one guy, ran down the long runway and totaled 2 FedEx Turbo Props, then pushed a UAL Boing 767 off it's locks and into the hangar doors, damaging the hangar, the doors and the airplane, then bounced this 100,000 lb. airplane up and down, then pulled it out of the hangar, spun it around and out into the grass. It missed my work truck by 30 ft., but the paper trash in the bed of the truck never moved, go figure.

    God Bless!!!
