We had a full-fledged tornado watch on Monday night. As in, wailing city-wide emergency alarm and Una, Veloc and I chilling in the basement until 10:15 PM while the craziest lightning storm raged outside. The tornado destroyed six houses in a city south of us and damaged 100. Here's a visual of what the landscape looks like:

This is something altogether new for us and apparently a common warning in the summers of Wisconsin. Also interesting? When it rains, as it did tsunami-style, it is difficult to see the actual tornado (near impossible, apparently). So you have no idea the dang thing's coming 'til your roof lifts off or a car flies by the basement window. 

A Bloom family first.
