In never rains, hails and snows in California the boys only warn ya!

OMG you guys... you are never going to believe this... we are under a tornado watch! We came home from Glen Helen which normally takes 40 minutes!
It took 3 hours... why?  We had a HUGE hail storm... and then we had to drive through Cherry Valley... which had 2 inches of SNOW!!!
[see the snow on the left side of the freeway!
They had snow plows out on the freeway, in front of us!!! See the clock... 3 minutes later that tornado touched down 10 miles away]
 
Maybe normal for you Lisa Jo or Ellen but NOT in California and certainly NOT on May 22 After it was over 100 degrees in the same place 48 hours ago!!!
 
If you watch the news and they show the tornado and a train overturned...
That is where Grampa just got buried... we were 10 miles away from it...
 
We go back in the morning... unless a tornado touches down and then Kameron said "We are moving..."
 
Oh ya... and Kieffer took home a 1st place trophey... Whoo Hoo

Welcome to our weather. I'm over here still running the heat trying to keep the house at 70 degrees. According to the weatherman I will be running the air conditioning this weekend when it shoots up to 85. What the heck? I hate back and forth weather.
Take care and Hugs, Chrissie
