Oh yeah, it got bad last night.
I knew it would be as soon as I got out of work. I thought the wind was going to blow me away. And it only got worse as the evening went on.
Before long, it would become The Night Of The Psycho Windchimes.*
I was keeping a pretty close eye on the radar, and when tornado warnings were issued for Leflore and Sunflower counties (just to the South and West of me), I decided it was time to abandon my mobile home for a sturdier building.
I went next door.
Aaaand after looking at the forecast for the rest of the night, I came home. But just long enough to walk the dogs, brush my teeth, and get my nightgown.
I was going to take my frou frou scarves to knit on, but I couldn't find them, so I just grabbed some yarn and cast on a new hat.
The yarn is Knit Picks Swish in the color Bordeaux. The picture is from my camera phone because I was too lazy to go get my DSLR.
I spent the night over there, and despite some kicking winds, the worst of it passed us. There was a tornado touched down in Sardis, which is just North of us, but I haven't heard of too much damage here.
Now I'm praying for my friends on the East coast, who are going through it tonight.
