Holy crap, we have a tornado!! Like blocks away from my house...

Edit: I just went out to get the mail (hur dur) and the neighborhood is DEAD. All the animals in the neighborhood are going insane.

It's further away from me than I originally thought, it's travelling between I5 and the 205.. it's closer to the I5 than the 205, and I'm near the 205.

Apparently, though, there's lots of damage.

Edit again: Not THAT much damage, mainly power up by where stanieldaniel works. That was just really.... RANDOM. I love that I grew up in tornado alley in the midwest, and was never in a single tornado, but the two that I HAVE been in were in the Portland area.

Erm, what I said under that other thing I deleted :X

Well, I'm glad it steered clear of her. .
That's amazing though.

No doubt - I was just getting ready to go to bed, too!

Yikes! Tornados have always been one of my biggest fears. Something about studying them in 6th grade science and watching videos probably.

Very scary. One of the reasons I'm afraid to leave this part of the country lol

Pathetic, I know...

Glad you're okay though, that's not pathetic.

They used to scare the CRAP out of me as a kid growing up in Iowa and Kansas. They excite me now that I'm an adult, which is silly as they're so damaging and such.

The only thing that scares me is the possibility of a tsunami. We were put on a tsunami watch once when there was a sizeable earthquake off the coast, scared the bejeebers out of me.

Yeah I'd imagine a tsunami would be a might bit scarier. Can't really hide in the basement from one of those :x

So I guess I won't be moving out west anytime soon lol
In fact, I think I'll go hide in the basement right now!

They were talking on the news, too, that the only volcano in the world that is within city limits is in Portland!! Thankfully, it's dormant, but yanno....

I can also see Mt. St. Helens from my work and it still erupts (burps) on occasion and has had a slow leak for about a year or more now.

That's crazy...and kind of cool. I don't think I'll ever see something as cool as a smoldering volcano type thingy with me own peepers.

Though I agree that having a dormant volcano nearby would make me a little uneasy too.
Jan. 10th, 2008 09:10 pm (UTC)
LOTS of dormant volcanoes in my area, which makes me a bit nervous, i.e. Ranier. Hell, St. Helens was dormant until the '80's!

I'd love to come visit you, but I have an allergy to dormant volcanos :D

All we have here is Radon in the basements and localized flooding lol

Reading back through this post, and hearing that there was another tornado that touched down in the area a couple of days ago.. wtf? ;) I frequently dream about tornados, like a LOT. My most recent one, I was in a giant warehouse trying to find a place to hide, just me and my store manager.

I haven't really had any dreams about them since maybe...7th grade? That's when we studied them and I began my childhood fears and constantly listening for a freight train during thunderstorms :x

I've always loved severe weather - within reason, of course. I greatly miss the monsoons from Phoenix! We generally just get a constant drizzle.... for nine freaking months.

Yikes!! Glad you're okay; stay safe! *hug!*

That's so funny to read - most people in the U.S. don't realize that there's a Vancouver, Washington, let alone have it on national news!!
Jan. 10th, 2008 11:47 pm (UTC)
Crazy weird. I'm glad you're safe.

A very belated response to say that I greatly love your icon. Jessica Galbreth?
Sep. 10th, 2008 04:36 am (UTC)
Yep! Thanks!
Jan. 11th, 2008 09:09 am (UTC)
Take care, it's totally dangerous.
Jan. 11th, 2008 02:23 pm (UTC)
Just becareful, watch out for swirling vortexes mmmk?

P.S. Would you hurt me if I called your Dorthy?

All kidding, I hope you, all you know and the people around you are ok.

Ha - I moved up here at age 13 from Kansas, so I've been called Dorothy on many occasions ;)
Sep. 9th, 2008 09:30 pm (UTC)
I'm kinda sorry that I made that joke now.
