Toto...I think we're in Kansas again!
Here's something you usually don't see around here. A real tornado warning on the tee-vee. Just like in the Midwest. Except now I don't have a basement to hide in. Someone told me to go in the bathtub instead. But I did gather some flashlights and the crank-up radio and made sure my shoes were next to my bed.
We have been having very stormy weather this week. Every day there has been heavy rain and last night the wind was pretty strong--I guess strong enough to make a tornado. Torrance was in the tornado watch area.
Forty miles of the state's main highway, Interstate 5, was closed for about 24 hours yesterday due to large amounts of snow.
I took this shot on the way home from work Thursday.
