Toto, We're Not in Kansas, Right?

Yesterday we had not one but two tornado warnings in Orange County.

This is not ordinary at all for So Cal. Not only did we have warnings for a tornado, but the tornados touched down in Huntington Beach and Seal Beach! Watching the "purple" eye of the tornado move from Catalina Island and then inland was intense. The weather changed quite fast. One minute we had light sprinkles with sunlight streaming through the clouds. Then just a minute or two later at about 1:20pm PST the skies darkened and the rain increased dramatically.

In our area we could hear thunder off in the distance. The sound rattled the windows in the studio.

I'm a big fan of the film The Wizard of Oz, but I'm not hoping for a repeat performance in Orange County anytime soon.

In comparison to the weather back east and other worldly events, we're all counting our blessings.

Bark at you later,
PJ the dog blogging dog :-)
