The Tornado in Childress
June 15, 2008 "Father's Day"
Childress, Texas was hit by straight winds of 80 mph from the east!! Every one in Childress suffered damaged - What a night! We were all safe in Kyle's Aunt Rosie's cellar (down the street with Rosie, the Randy Allen family and Dallas). We did not suffer a great deal of damage - but WOW - it was something! The third pictures shows all the hail on the ground afterward. The other pics are of our backyard and our damaged fence. The hail was deep and cold - in June! Check out the link to the picture of the "Mothership Cloud" over Childress, it's amazing...
