The tornado hit our complex last night at around 4:40. TDSKid and I were outside when it touched down. We saw it briefly before we ran for cover. Debbie was lucky enough to be away at work. Everyone here is OK, but the property is well...

Our office and pool house are destroyed, and we have many trees uprooted. One of our buildings has a 15'x20' hole in the rooof and side. We have yet to find the roof of our office building.

I'll post pictures to our WGA Photo album in a bit.

I'm sorry you suffered the damage and fear, but glad to hear everyone is okay. That storm was almost one-of-a-kind, from what they're saying.

Glad to hear that you and your family is safe and well. Good luck in the clean up, and I hope that repairs and rebuilds go smooth for all of you.

I just drove one of my snow mobiles through just a little bit of the Mountain/Riverview tornado damage from this last Summer, and I have to say....I can't believe the power that it must have packed.

I hope things work out for you! Crying or Very sad
