Seriously! I had this day perfectly planned, I was going to make holiday cookies for a broker tour on Thursday, get caught up on a few blogs, update a few things on my website, exercise, follow up on some leads, you know, the everyday stuff but I have been behind the last few days. So, today was going to be my catch up day. Wrong!
I went to the grocery store, came out, it had just rained, nothing unusual there. Drove home, and the roads were white with what I thought was snow. Wrong again, it was hail, a lot of it! We don't usually get that much here in Salem Oregon.
I called my husband to tell him about our exciting white roads and the auto accident around the corner. He said there was a tornado that just blew through Aumsville Oregon (about 6 miles from our house). Wow! I get home, unload the groceries and turn on the news. They are all talking about the tornado. So I say to myself, "self, this is exciting! We should blog about it! Let's go get some pictures!
So I did. They already had Main Street blocked off, so I went down a block, parked and walked. They wouldn't allow even foot traffic on the hardest hit street, but I still got pictures of other damage.
