Yesterday, a tornado ripped through a nearby town, Windsor, CO. My friend La Guera and her son live there (about 20 minutes from Fort Collins), and although a tree fell on a corner of her garage, her house is OK and they are both OK.
It's a rare thing, so the news reports this morning are saying, for a tornado to hit so close to the mountains. Apparently conditions just don't get to the point where many tornadoes form around here.
Made me think about how fast situations can change sometimes. And, I'm thankful my house has a basement.
