Crazy Texas Weather

My husband called me just as I was about to leave town to tell me there was a bad storm near Millsap and that there was large hail in it.  So I decided to play it safe and go back to the office.  Just as I parked the hard rain started, then people from all over town started showing up to try to park their cars under the covered parking at my office. 
I sat there for about 20 minutes till I got the all clear call from my husband and then the call confirming it from my parents.  We lucked out with very little hail at our plave and none that I saw in town. I drove home watching the clouds, once I got home I started watching the news coverage.  We had some scary storms in North Texas and Oklahoma.  My husband kept going back out to look at the clouds.   It seemed that every few minutes another cloud was forming in our part of the county and then they blew up into huge scary storms as they moved  north east.
One Tornado touched down near Springtown and then there were reports of storms in Saginaw.  I text my friend in Springtown to see if they were OK, she asured me that all was fine.  I was a little nervous about the Saginaw storm when I couldn't get my cousin to answer.  He finally posted to FB that they were OK. 
By nine o'clock I was exhausted and decided I couldn't do any one any good by worring so I decided to call it a night.

Next Monday morning bright and early I will Leave for England, Ireland & Scotland.   The trip of a life time.  I am excited beyond words.  I will try to post some shots and updates along the way. If I can learn how to do that from my mom's iphone.  We have decided that my phone will stay at home in the states.  (Let mom & dad pay the international phone bill ;)
