Yesterday we had some pretty horrific storms hit Connecticut. As I was driving home there was an impressive light show going on all around me. Getting from the car to the house was a bit on the "thrilling" side as the lightening was hitting the ground around my house.
We turned off and unplugged as much as we could. All of a sudden I told my family that the sky reminded me of what I call a "tornado sky" as everything turned dark green, even the air. I remember this from when I lived in Georgia, it seems even the air turned a dark green, like being in a bowl of pea soup, before a tornado came near. And that is exactly what happened. I would have taken a picture but my camera was in the trunk of my car.
We were fine, and perhaps amazingly lucky as we didn't lose power. Although apparently I read this morning that 20% of New Milford residents were without power last night. And... it appears that there just might have been a tornado in New Milford, the weather center is coming to check it out. Our schools are closed today, I don't know what I will find on my drive to the office.
When the storm blew out of here the clouds cleared and the sun showed itself as a fiery red disk setting in the sky. I am grateful we didn't lose any trees, I do hope that if a tornado hit in town it hit an unpopulated section. I just don't know yet. And thank you Gail Robinson, I got a contact message from Gail last night (after I dared to turn the electronics back on), asking if I was ok because she heard we had a tornado in New Milford. She knew before I did! I didn't read about it until this morning.
