Closer Than I Want To Be

We had a series of killer tornadoes come through the area over the weekend. We were fine. One tree limb broke off and pulled on the power lines, but the house was okay. In the next town there are homes destroyed and trees uprooted.

This couple had a very close call and recorded it. They were much closer than I ever want to be to a tornado. The location mentioned in the video description is on a major highway a few miles west of here.

Leaves stood still, and our hearts stood still,
But the sky was a-boil with clouds,
A coppery wrack, and the greenish black
Of shrouds.
We dove for shelter and none too soon.
The universe swayed and swirled,
And the monstrous horn of a unicorn
Gored the world.
