No Tornados here... just one massive storm

 This is what my area looked like yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock. Thirty minutes prior to this is was 97 degrees and sunny, and I was laying out in the back yard catching rays with Chris. I went inside to take a shower and when I got out this is what we were dealing with.
 Although we didn't get hail at our house a few areas around us saw a good amount....
 There are downed trees every where.... power lines down... some schools are closed...
 If I was the driver of this truck I probably would have crapped my pants... that body of water right there is the Atlantic Ocean...
 And the weather people said we had wind gust up to 70+ mph...
I surely thought our neighbors huge maple tree (not pictured above) was going to get torn out of the ground. Luckily, we only lost power for about a minute or two... after that I was glued to the Weather Channel watching all the horrible weather moving across Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas.

My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who was effected by this horrible storm.
