Tornado to close to home..........

A tornado dropped in southeast Aurora Sunday afternoon just 2 miles from my home. It was rated an EF-1 on the Enhanced Fujita scale with wind speeds around 100 mph. Did some mild damage to the beautiful Southlands Mall & our new Lowes. Here at home we had strong winds and golf ball size hail. Had some damage to our windows and glass door. I had just purchased some beautiful flower baskets a week before and did not have time to save those. The storm hit so fast. The hail was so loud on the windows and roof, it was really hard to keep Tiffani calm during the storm. She hates thunder. The weather is always scary this time of year.
