Ok, we had several set down around us, but we just got some hail here. A friend of the family was working in a veterinarian clinic in Windsor, where the real damage was, she left us a hysterical phone message, thought she might have just been over reacting, then we saw the building she was in on TV, only two walls standing, 80% of the roof gone. She took her dog into the bathroom and covered up with blankets. She told us later, when we saw her, that she could see the sky through the roof afterwards! Her car was totaled, but she's ok. 

Son in-law is a firefighter and in the National Guard, we was out there for three day with one or the other groups said it was a real mess, I guess they have power back as of yesterday.  Usually don't get tornadoes this close to the foothills, was pretty weird!

Yea, one guy died, could have been a lot worse. The made all the kids at my youngest daughter's school huddle in the gym, when the clouds in our area started to swirl around, just north of the school.
