A close call for the BARN

It was a wild weather day in Western Iowa on Tuesday, March 22.  It was a balmy spring day, and by afternoon, the temps topped 70 degrees.  Stormy weather popped up, and soon, Harrison County was smack-dab in the the middle of a tornado watch.  Sure enough, the tornado touched down near Missouri Valley and was on a trajectory towards Woodbine...  It was toooooo close!  A neighbor who lives less than 2 miles away from the barn snapped this photo of the tornado on the ground.  The family that rents the house next to the barn called to report that the storm knocked one of the sun porch windows out, but the barn weathered the storm!  I'm glad everyone stayed safe.

  1. That is one wicked looking sky, 'we' are really lucky that the storm didn't take the 'retreat barn'. I'm still thinking it's a great idea.
