Thankfully yes :) And thank you all for all the prayers and well wishes.

They were originally predicting that the remnants would stall over N.E. Texas and this thing would just sit there spinning tornadoes into the state all day today, but it moved further north and east than they orginally predicted before it stalled out so we got all our severe weather Saturday night and today the severe stuff had moved on into eastern Ar, western Ms. and western TN so we've been pretty much in the clear today.

Our winds at one point maxed out at 40mph and I stood there at the door amazed (though I don't know why) that the rain looked just like it did on TV, raining from left to right rather than from up to down. It was raining so hard you could barely see the cars and I thought "the only thing missing is Jeff Morrow and a Weather Channel camera crew in the parking lot"

We didn't have much damage here and very little flooding.

We had a total of 18 tornado warning which was far far less than I anticipated. When they began saying we were going to be stuck in the infamous "right-front quadrant" for 3 days my mind immediately went to the super-outbreak we had back on January 21st, 1999 when we had 56 confirmed tornadoes in 8 hours (5 on the ground at one time). It set a worlds record until the next day when it broke out again in Texas where they got 57. Anyway that's a day I never want to see again. :)
