    Prayers going out to those in Cleburne and Granbury. Prayers for the safety of others in the DFW region, including my sister in Wylie.

    I’m lucky so far….it’s all just southeast of us…..Granbury is reporting multiple fatalities due to tornado activity. Please pray for my neighbors here in Texas…..

      Same here. Glad it seems to have bypassed my area, but it was close enough to make me wish for a basement.

    I definitely feel for those affected. Although I rue the possibility that Algore will utilize this to push the global warming agenda, ignoring the fact that this is still by far one of the quietest tornado seasons ever.

    Granbury, TX is one of the finest small towns on earth. It could be Mayberry. I spent great times there at the Inn on the River and I pray that there is a healing and recovery for all of those impacted. This is heart breaking.

    Tornadoes are one of my worst phobias. My heart goes out to all these poor people; I just could not imagine myself in this situation. On a barely-lighter note, those hailstones are majorly impressive. Almost beautiful, though there is nothing beautiful about the damage they cause.

    There used to be a university there in the US-SW that asked for donations of hail when they were over 2″ in size, Wish I could remember, but maybe someone with better google-fu can find it, apparently they use it to figure out how it forms in upper levels of thunderstorms and all that.
