Howdy All,

For those of you that might know, Interweave's Loveland offices are about 15 miles from the Windsor tornado. It sounds like everyone is OK here.  More as folks come in today.


Cheers!

 Hope everyone's ok there.  Sure can be scary we got some in the neighborhood here in Virginia, but thankfully no one was seriously injured.

 Tornado in Colorado?  Wow.  In Western Washington, all we really have to worry about are earthquakes and possible volcanic erruptions, neither of which happen too often.

Scary! Glad to hear everyone is all right. I used to live in a tornado area (Georgia) and sure don't miss them!

We have hurricane season down here in the tropics - starting June 1st and lasting thru October. I'll be safely tucked away in a marina then - not anchored out in small coves. Just gotta keep my eye on the weather forecasts and hang on tight!

As far as I've heard, everyone is OK. We had one person's father have some damage up in Laramie, and I think Sandi lost a few roof shingles. The twister passed within a 1/4 of me mum's place Surprise, but she and her kitty are well and camped with us for a few days.

Cheers!

 Yep.  I sat in the basement while one touched down 50 meters from the house on Mother's Day in Macon, GA.  The house needs a new roof now (just lost shingles), but much of Macon was more severly damaged.  Glad you're all okay.

Hope all is well out there! We had some 'reported' tornadoes around here recently. Scarey! I've lived here for 10 years and not had a single worry about them .. this year though .. I've heard those sirens go off three times!

 How are things today - May 23, 2008 - day after the wild weather and tornadoes? My daughter is in Windsor and her husband works in Laramie - but they escaped damage. Glad I live in Vermont where I don't have to worry about such weather. I was wondering about you folks. My daughter got married in Loveland last year. Maybe, if this keeps up she will come back to Vermont!!Wink But I am concerned for all the people who have lost their homes. Glad Sandi just had shingle damage. Say "HI" to everyone! Glad you are safe.

It WAS a wild day.  My son works in Windsor and was on the phone on his way to work yesterday saying:  gee MOM this hail is really big and the clouds are really low and dark and swirly!  I'm working in Cheyenne and freaking out.  Didn't  know whether to tell him to stay or go. He got to windsor just as people were coming out of their homes to survey the damage.  that kid gives me heart failure!! 

As for me I spent a few hours in the basement at work in cheyenne yesterday and today (friday).  was nervous so I didn't want to knit and screw something up!!

Sure hope everyone's okay.  I grew up in NW Florida so I know how scary and deadly tornadoes are.

Ruth, it was relatively quiet. The winds whipped up in Fort Collins this afternoon, and there was another tornado warning over in Weld county, but it all passed uneventfully, as far as I know
