Tornado hits my home town!

This sucker hit my home town when I was at work! Lived in Milton for more then 26 years and never seen anything like it! Usually a twister that heads our way glides off of the escarpment and misses us completely, but not this time! It was a total site to see! Here is how I saw it.

Outside in the smoke shack at work on my lunch break. It's me and several other people. Minh starts to point "Look look rain!" (he's from Vietnam and speaks Viet-English) so we look over. It was a black wall of rain and we were all completely mesmerized by it! It moved in fast and for a bit we all huddled in the smoke shack laughing at how hard it was raining. Then the shack started to shake somthing fierce so being the brave souls we are we all ran for it laughin our butts off. We stood in the die storage area and watched the storm through the bay door. The sky was black, then it was green. We knew something really bad was going down close by when we noticed the rain was literally sideways and the puddles were all showing rotation. Craziest thing I have ever seen.

Toto there really is no place like home!

Just a note here, no one was hurt in this twister, it was mainly tree and roof damage as well as a couple of cars getting flattened in their driveways.
