Toto, I have a feeling we are not in Yonkers anymore!

Amazingly a Tornado has struck Westchester county. Fortunately our house was not hurt (other than being completely rained on.) The lightning was incredible and the thunder was loud and long, but we didn't have any damage at all (as far as I can tell)

Others were not so lucky. The Tornado hit harder about 20 minutes north. The California Closet store that we used for our closet was actually destroyed! A closet system was lifted out of there and deposited by the wind across the street. Many trees came down. The destruction was pretty amazing-- but somehow nobody was killed, Thank God! Although a state trooper's cruiser was lifted up in the air with him in it.

You can see the picture of what happened to the CC store below:

Weirdly, this is not the first time a tornado has hit in New York. It seems that several of them in the last few years have been spotted, and in the 1970's, and a couple of major disasters in the 20's. Cyclical cyclones, I guess!
