This was the itty-bittiest of tornadoes but it was a real one, touching down Saturday afternoon, north of St. Louis (our nearest city).
It’s typical, too: you go, ‘meh, thunderstorm, wait…is that a funnel? Oh, man! Lookie thar!’

They’re heading away, you hear sort of a thud and then it’s over. Those are bricks the building was pummeled with for you know, 2 seconds. Some tornadoes ‘sit’ on you. Most pop down and up. If you had been outside, that wall of bricks wouldn’t have cared you were human.
Talk about getting shredded at the gym?
Glad they were okay but I also don’t watch TV, so there could’ve been dog-knows-what. Again, this was the tiniest recordable tornado and that brief. It would still have killed you.
