    OMG!! 20 mins ago i layed down to take a nap an my sister came bangin my door down sayin a tornado is coming and i was like whateva leave me alone... cuz Maryland never or hardly ever gets tornados and if so it's just a watch

    well she wouldn't leave me alone so i got up an turn on the tv an it said Tornado Warning for Prince George's County and my heart droped in my stomach

    then about 10 mins later me and my sister heard somethign like a train an we looked out the window and omg it was the tornado!!!! it didn't even give us enough time to grab our pets.. we ran as fast as we could an grab a mattress an ran into the bathroom.....it was sooooooo loud an my sister was screaming like crazy...

    when it pass.. it busted most of the windows on our house an there is a really big tree on our front yard.. and my parents left to the store 15 mins before the storm came an we haven't heard from them yet and i'm nervous!! i hope there ok... an my gawd our farm house.. i hope all the animals are ok.. i'm not leavin to check on them until i here from my parents an know there ok first... this was soo scary :eek:

    THE GIANTS ARE BOWLING AND THE POWER IS FLICKERING HERE IN MARYLAND IT DOES NO SAY TORNADOES FOR MY AREA BUT I HOPE MY FELLOW MDer's are safe ! this has happened twice in my 16 years of life in maryland you can tell when they are coming because of the sky it turns orange and green and last time it was a bit purple in daylight I just sprinted across the yard in pooring rain and thunder and lightning and scooped up the hens and herded all 11 into the coop. We are supposed to get rain like this all tonight so I but 3 flakes of straw down in the chicken tractor. Oh *&$% forgot to do a head count but I though I saw all the hens go in I have to go out again and check also I will look If I see a funnel then the hens are going in the shed ! or in the house with me :mad: Chicken boy hope your parents are alright and they just stayed in the store stay safe tonight!

    Well lets hope the giants stop bowling and leave MD alone but it doesn't look like that is going to happen!

    it scared me because the hens did not know it was coming usually animals have a sense of these things but they stayed out until they got trapped by the shed under the conoe in the back the dog is not freaking out so I should be ok. My mom and dad are both out but I am not to worried I am just worried about everyone else in MD and hope they are ok

    Hope everyone (human and pets) are OK!

    Wow - how frightening - but great that you knew EXACTLY what to do to help ensure your own safety!! Quick thinking!

    Glad you are OK and hope there is no worse damage than a few broken windows and a tree or two...
