Doug,
I live in Princeton, orginally from Aledo. My dad used to work in Muscatine at Berry Bearing, now Motion Industries. My aunt lives in Fruitland, I guess they made it out ok, not too much damage. Our area has been hit quite a few times the past couple of years. Nothing like OK or Kansas though. Glad everyone is safe.

Yeah, Motion Industries is not far at all from work. My understanding is that no deaths resulted from it, just minor injuries. It'* amazing......

Glad to hear you're OK.

From experience, a nighttime tornado is scary as all [email protected]#, but there may be a silver lining. You know it'* there, so you're scared and totally helpless. But you can't see it. Not seeing it eliminates some of the sheer horror. I think.

We were in Bowling Green KY for an all Buick event. My 82 GN (1 of 20) was left at the track. My 87 GN was with me at the hotel. Watching the 10pm news, the weatherman came on with breaking news. A tornado was confirmed on the ground just outside downtown BG. As he said this, the lights go out and we're left wondering if we're in the path. The storms were so bad, we heard things we never heard before. We did not directly encounter the tornado, and our cars (over 30 GN'*) were spared in our hotel lot. My 82 was spared damage at the track. Once daylight hit, we discovered the tornado was about a mile away from us. That'* when the real fright hit. It was close. I'm betting had we seen it in the daylight, we'd have been waaay more terrified than we were when we knew it was nearby, but didn't hit us.

I don't envy you the terror of seeing and fleeing one of these things. After seeing the destruction in person of a tornado on 2 occasions, I never want to see that sight in person.
