And, other than spending the morning going through stuff in the freezers to see what might have spoiled (which, thankfully doesn't appear to be too much), I'm good
And how was your day???

I love the Dallas area but I could never live there in peace because of the tornado alley. I have a friend in McKinney who seems to fare well having been raised there so I'm sure that makes the difference. As for me? I'd have to be plumb damn blind in love and I'd still be a wuss living anywhere in the area.

IMO, the City of Dallas has been exceptionally fortunate over the years to miss many of the tornadoes that wander through the area. The last major tornado to hit the City of Dallas was an F3 way back in April 1957. I think most of the recent tornadoes that have impacted the area have hit the outlying subarbs of the Metroplex or come down in mostly rural areas. Most of our "wind" damage comes from the extreme blustery winds that come with our violent thunderstorms. The downpour that occurred this past Sunday produced winds in excess of 70 miles per hour which is what caused most of the tree and roof damage. And, of course, that caused the power outages
My body is a shell; I will modify it.
Death is a disease; I will cure it.
Extinction is ever-looming; I will fight it.
