Gusts of wind. Dark clouds coming.

Topiary is home where the wind cannot ruffle the serene composure of trimmed branches.

The reason this may be rough? The temperature here is in the high 70's. And the front moving in will be in the 40's. When weather collides, tornadoes form. Very strange for Christmas. Here's a picture taken at noon today.

Hope everyone is enjoying warm breezes without the threat of Weather. What is that creepy banging noise outside the house?

How different your view out the window is. Here it is blue sky and sunshine. However, Mr Weatherman tells us all it will rain tonight.

I would be a bit scared to live in and area where there may be a tornado. Then again, others may be a bit scared to live in a country where a spider bite can kill you. Just whatever you are used to.

Has Ms Cow ever chased a tornado? It must be quite an experience.

Fortunately no tornado, but the summer-like breeze does put a damper on the Christmas spirit. :(

Watercolor: yikes.

Linda: I understand right now it's summer in Australia. It's supposed to be winter here...but it's almost 80 degrees!

So far we've had 108 tornadoes in Mississippi this year...

Super: yep! It was fun!

Kevin: New Year's festivities

Gorilla: Cow not only doesn't chase tornadoes, she tries to run as fast as possible the other way!

Sandi: Cow cheering her holiday with thoughts of her low power bill!

You never see tornadoes on Christmas cards or in Christmas specials, do you?

I can see it now; 'Nader Miser ...

Noooo. And they don't warn you about it when you move here, either.

The first time it started raining really hard and these sirens started going off, Cow thought it was WWIII starting or something.
