Well, we are doing fine. We live in Hillsborough which the tornadoes grazed on either side but thankfully left us alone. During the action I was driving my kids to ice skating lessons and looked up at the sky. "Look at those clouds, girls! They are moving so fast!" I said. Little did I know that to the east and to the west they were moving A LOT faster.
Here is a picture of a Lowes store in a city near us.
Can you imagine being in a Lowes store during a tornado? With hammers, nails, 2x4s, lawnmowers, toilets flying all around? Here is the story of how the managers saved the people inside: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=135498048
I have heard several Carolina natives say these tornadoes were worse than anything they've ever seen before in North Carolina....including hurricanes.
I guess it could have been worse, though. Naomi keeps telling people that North Carolina was hit by a bunch of volcanos.
