It started about 7pm on Good Friday. We were doing our normal pizza movie night when the tornado sirens went off. I did my normal – I’m the dad, everyone stay calm, I will check the radar and see if the alarm is legit thing. It was.
As you can see on this map above, the little triangle is the first tornado to touch down, about 10 minutes from our house. Fortunately for us (not so fortunate for others) the storm stayed south.
It took a toll on the airport…
They say it was St. Louis’ worst storm in 40 years with winds up to 200 mph. Tonight we have a 50/50 chance for a second dose. Happy Spring in the Midwest.
