Someone Grab Toto !!!!

Here are some photos from the storm last night taken at the new TD Ameritrade Park where they are holding the College World Series here in my hometown, Omaha, Nebraska.  Is this not crazy scary?  Fortunately, we only received high winds and really heavy rains, and no tornadoes were spotted, but boy the conditions sure were perfect for a tornado to develop!

That same storm came to my area (north of Des Moines, IA) around 11:45pm! We had some tornados touch down, but I'm not sure how much damage there was yet.
Thanks for sharing the picture!

Oh my goodness. I knew things were looking bad last night. We were at the hospital in Hastings and they were scouting places to put patients in case we got a warning but thank God nothing happened. We do have a beautiful new grand baby though. :-)

WOW. I've never seen a storm like that... it's almost as if you were in the center of a very large tornado. I'm so glad everyone is ok and there weren't any tornadoes.
