Everything fine with me. My wife's office manager nearly lost her son when his pickup was thrown and rolled 4 times. Her technician (wife is a vet) lost her house. My house is on the northwest side and was fine. Thanks for asking, though. Anyone else?

I'd say you did have a close call. I went through Moore and south OKC about two hours before that hit.

The sirens were sounded up here in Edmond, but we didn't get anything.

I took a near miss Friday night around Baptist Hospital. No fun. Did anybody get hit?

Tornado tore the shit out of everything around where I work at NW 10th and County Line.

Once again, we dodged the bullet here. I live at County Line and Wilshire, so the kids and I stood out back to see if we could spot anything. Nothing but wind, hail and rain. My aunt's place got torn up, but everyone is ok. Jim, what about your place in Edmond? Did it go south of you?

Yeah, it wound up passing to the south of us between Britton and Hefner.

I took some pictures of the poles down on NW 10th, but I can't get this crappy computer at work to connect to the camera.

My wife wants one too. After siting in the closet for 30 min last night with two kids, it doesn't seem like a bad idea.

You guys missed out on the tax break the State gave everyone for installing a storm shelter after the 1999 tornado. Maybe they'll offer that again.

Bush has declared OK a disaster area, so maybe that tax break will come back. As an aside, my wife, kids and I all went out to El Reno to shoot this afternoon. The storm passed about half a mile from Harry's range. The only damage there was from my wife using the new Eotech. I'll put up some pics tomorrow.

Glad everyone is OK. I live in southern Tulsa County and we had one run about 5 miles north of us, kinda worked its way down 67 (south end of Glenpool). There was one spotted by KTUL's spotters about 100 ft. from my bedroom window (they weren't in my yard, so I'm not sure how they saw it). I never saw the thing, and none of the other weather stations saw such a thing, so I went back to bed and slept the rest of the night.

SecuritySix, I was out that night and never saw what they were talking about. I went into T town because I work for a public safety agency and live down your way. It has been my experience that alot of spotters like hearing themselves on the radio and alot of small towns use people to spot that don't have any training or experience. I live in Northern Okmulgee County and there was supposed to be one spotted near my house too. There wasn't a bit of damage or a drop of rain there.
