We kid here that high wind is a 'spectator' sport...when the wind starts blowing everyone is out on their porches to watch things blow up and down the street. But once the sirens go off, everyone heads for cover. I'm not originally from here so it's an odd thing.
I am in Massachusetts & we had a few tornadoes touch down last night. There was lots of damage in the western part of the state & some lives lost. Very scary stuff. My husband is a state trooper on the search & rescue team & has been working non-stop. I can't believe some of the pics he has sent me. Very sad. I can't imagine living someplace where tornadoes are common!
