Tornadoes and Lightning and Rain . . . oh my!

Visitors to my website know and love Kali the Food Goddess, my brilliant writer/cook friend who provides the monthly recipe and food chat. What you might not know is that she lives in Brooklyn . . . or that she just avoided being swept away in a tornado Tuesday night!

Yes, a tornado in Brooklyn. Bay Ridge, to be precise. (Bay Ridge was the setting for Saturday Night Fever. Not exactly Kansas.) The tornado hit one block to the right of Kali's house and one block to the left. But for some wonderful, inexplicable, blessed reason the tornado danced right over Kali's house and she and her mom Marie are both safe and sound and possessed of one hell of a great story to tell!

Did you hear that sound? That's me, breathing one huge sigh of relief.

If you can't be a good example -- then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Ah the power of denial combined with lack of caffeine...

Every time the report came on the radio, I just assumed they meant Brooklyn, Texas!

I heard the report on the news about the tornado..........never dreaming a friend was in the center of the storm. Breathing a sigh of relief in Arizona for Kali and Marie.....Jeannie
