TODAY - God's Safety in the STORM.... Tornado!!!

From a different storm 6 miles from our place a couple years back compliments of Mick's photography....
 
 
Usually eat lunch with girls after service - just felt impressed today to get home NOW. And the Lord indicated I was not to stop at Venture Foods either... Leaving Divide I thought there was an accident because tons of vehicles were pulled over - and there on the right was a tornado and they were all taking photos... duh....
 
I prayed and got on Twin Rocks to high tail it home... it was right there beside me - the air raid sirene noise came on the radio and they said there was a tornado in Lake George and seek immediate shelter... I sped down Twin Rocks Road to teller 12 and it looked like it was just THERE at the Fossil beds... I turned left (still speeding and praying) and some people were driving TOWRADS it....
 
I called Joe, Donna and another neighbor to let them know they could come to our crawl space (it is 5 feet tall and more civilized than some)
Got home ready to grab kitties - Park county had left messages on our machine and computer but not the cell phones,....
 
Mick is out hiking in this... left him messages...
 
They touched down on Teller 11 (the route home by the Four Mile Church) and in Lake George - yes, apparently there were THREE funnel clouds in our immediate area - the big one was headed to Florissant, Divide and WP they said. There is another storm system coming through in 2 hours (3:45)
Thanking God for being safe - praying for all - including Annie and Cricket and others coming this way... and you guys!
 
Too much excitement...
NO I did not do photos....
 
Mick is safe and found out THREE tornadoes touched down near our home. Praising Him we are ok... some friend's RV park and camping grounds near Lake George was badly hit but no people or animals were hurt!

Oh my, that sounds scary. Glad you two are ok and you didn't have any damage. Who would ever think tornadoes in Colorado!

It was way too close for comfort - and 3 funnels touched down quite near to us yesterday - 8 total touched down in all of Colorado... yikes!
