Thanks PF. It's not a good day to go to the pool either.

Apparently there was a tornado touch down a few miles north.

Did a quick perusal, as far as I can tell, there are no big branches or trees down, but it's still pouring rain, and thunder just made the house shake.

I was thinking about a bike ride, but the thunder has changed my mind. I will just go for a walk with the umbrella.

Whoa. Our little area got hit pretty hard. Many semis and cars overturned, lots of folks without power, lots of trees down. They're sending news crews.

Beagle and I are lucky.

Still feel yuk this morning, but I think a bit better than yesterday I think!

Anyway, we are still going out regardless!

We are heading into the city today and we are going to have a look around the Central Market and probably buy some nice cheeses and wood oven breads etc

Then we are going to have lunch somewhere in the city, just walk around and see what takes our fancy

We are then going to look around at some shops, including the new Rundle Centre that has been built

The office building that Steve works in is just across the road from this new, huge shopping complex and he has watched it being built, so he is just as eager to go in there and see it as I am

So a nice day ahead!

They're saying that the tornados were wrapped up in the rain, so it's very hard to see them and determine that they're tornados.

It ripped the roof off a church and a car dealership. I'm so hoping it didn't go through the trailer court.

Thanks Taxy.

Weird stuff. The gnats and mosquitos are loving it. Hoping they got blown away!
