Tornado over Lancaster?!

Well.... who'd have thought it? Little Old Lancaster, where nothing extraordinary ever happens (hardly ever, remember the Earthquake of 2009?), had a tornado - well, a funnel cloud - pass overhead last night.

I heard the storm. I was just putting Tom & Georgie to bed, we'd read a Peppa Pig book where there had been a thunder storm leading to many many muddy puddles, and then we heard the thunder and pouring rain for real. It was really coming down hard!

The tornado surprises me though, because (aside from not being usual up our neck of the woods) when I stuck my head out of the front door wondering where the cat was and why he wasn't begging to come in, there was barely a breath of wind. I would have assumed it would be at least a BIT windy! Fizzy (the cat) made it home shortly after when there was a break in the rain and enjoyed a good rubbing down from me and Jack.

Even without catching a glimpse of the tornado myself I can say the weather was odd. Thunder, pouring rain, and brilliant sunshine all at the same time.

Anyway, just to prove I am not making it up (because when I saw it on Facebook I thought it was a hoax), here's the link to the local paper: http://www.lancasterguardian.co.uk/news/local/tornado-hits-lancaster-1-6664125





Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.
