Tornadic Weather

So we were under severe threat of weather. Tornadoes, hail, strong gusts of wind, etc. We go to pick up our kids from daycare and we are just going to run through a drive thru to get something quick to eat. We are in line at the Taco Bell at Kirby Whitten and Stage and here are some pics I took. We were listening to my ipod so I turned it off and turned on the radio and they said they had reports of a funnel cloud at Kirby Whitten and Yale (just about a mile down from where we were). I don't usually get freaked by severe weather but even I was getting freaked out.

Once we got home we turned the news on. The weather has been on for at least 2 hours. There are warnings everywhere. Many tornadoes reported in the Memphis area, lots of damage. No reports of injuries as of now. I will report back more if I hear it.

Oh and I sent my pictures to channel 5 and they showed them on news. A little excitement for me in all this chaos.
