    Keith we are doing fine, it hit just in back of Henderson along 41 here in town about 2-3 miles the way the crow fly's from our homes, but it jumped across the river and hit Ellis Park Race Track. It was totally destroyed, and then it ran along the Ohio river up to Newburg and just about destroyed that area. I have talked to all the BOC members in this area and everyone is doing good no damage.

    Clear Here!!! We survived yet another bad one at Dreadnaught's lair, it was a little close but we were spared. It did some major damage in other places though. So far they are saying there were 14 killed. It hit so late that people were asleep when it came through, never new it was coming.

    Glad to hear you all are alright.

    Right now my county as well as some in MD and PA are under tornado watch :eek: We have some branches down in the yard already, and the temperature has dropped 10 degrees in about 15 minutes, so, if you all don't hear from me again for a few days, I'll prolly be wrapped up in that. :mad: Please keep these counties and folks in your thoughts.

    I was glad to hear you, Ryan, the rest of your family and the other BOC members made it through the storm alright, I was concerned after I heard about it this morning. It petered out by the time it got here, all we got was some wild looking lightning, gusty winds and rain.

    All is well here. The tornado hit within 1 or 2 miles of my parents and grandparents houses though. No damage there, but it was enough to be nervous as we were watching the radar last night.

    I took a few photos of the damage, some of them are in Kentucky and some in Evansville. I understand Newburgh is almost destroyed.

    Here is the last of my photos, I don't want to take up too much space but I think you get the picture..

    Right now I think they have found at least 22 dead so far. Its a shame it came in the middle of the night when everyone was asleep.

    Here is a fish caught in Evansville by some crazy guy named Deerhunter01. This was caught 4 hours before the tornado hit a few miles away.

    First time I think I have been sea sick on the Ohio River ..lol j/k :eek:

    Oh Rodpod I found two of your finger nails in my dash board today, if you want them back give me a call. If not then I will mount them in the trophy case. :p
