Glad to hear it bypassed you. We were sideswiped back in '80 and like you, I knew something was wrong. ITornado came through just after dark set in. It sounded wrong, smelled wrong, tasted wrong and had my hair standing on end. Didn't know what happed until the next morning. Changed course about a half of a mile from us and turned north. Lifted the top two stories off an old three story Victorian and sat it back on the wall plates right where it belonged. Looked really strange with the curtains hanging out over the outside of the windows
Of course you knew something big happened ... the barn was in pieces sitting on the other side of the highway!
