I have been following it on the news as well. The film of the semi trailers being tossed in the air was incredible ! Crying Praying everyone gets thru this unharmed.

Sheila too Sad I hope they check in, but thousands are evidently without power.

Selfishly, I also hope it dies down soon, since it is on a bee-line to us!

Oh thank you for directing me here Hetty. So glad you seem to be safe at this point. Hubby turned on the t.v. and said honey look. I right away went to this site. I've been sending you safe and genlte hugs thoughts a prayers ever since I saw it on the boob tube.;

I saw where Arlington got hit. I used to live 10 miles from there when we lived in Texas and 3 miles out of North Richland Hills. Prayers out to all out Texan friends.

Josephine (frostweed) posted elsewhere a little while ago that they are fine in Arlington and just had very heavy rain without hail

Dennis (dfwdennis) posted they were okay in Grapevine and had only dime sized hail.

All intact here. Not even wind, but some welcome rain. The bad stuff went around my neighborhood. What happens when a big ole 53-foot trailer is tossed 1/4 mile into a house was a wild sight. Blinking
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
