Not to scare anyone, but just to show how Colorado weather is, we had a massive storm cell move through North Eastern Colorado this morning that brought tornados's that cause so far three deathes, and major damage to Winsdor which never gets tornado's. Laramie just 60 miles north West of ft Collins was also hit. The moutains are getting snow dumped on them. If Colorado gets tornado's it is usually east of Greeley towards Ft Morgan and Sterling and southwards towards Limon which is east of Denver.

I have a close GF who lives and works in Wins=dsor and I hope she is OK. I am sure she is, but I called her to check in on her.

This was not the "normal" kind of Colorado tornado as it was BIG and wide. Normally they are wispy and snake like and do not stay on the ground long. This one did

SO Looks like Colorado weather is starting off with a big bang. Beprepared for anything this faire season in Colorado.

Windsos is about 15 minutes east of where I live. And I almost took a job in Windsor in January. The tornado moved near that place.

I'm glad you're alright!  I know how scary the forces of nature can be, I hope there will be no more tornados like that.

I saw footage on the news this morning, and some of those houses were just devastated. I can't imagine how awful it would be to come home and find your house destroyed.

Glad you're ok, Lady D, and I hope your friend is okay too!
Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

Thanks for the concern of all those in Colorado and to me and friends.

I have not heard from her yet, but that doesn't mean anything bad. Cell service is jammed around windsor because of the tornado. I hope I hear from her by the weekend. Then again she may have left town and headed to the mountains to camp. I just hope her place is OK as I know she doesn't have much and has lived in her van when times were really bad for her.

Thanks again.

Wow that is really crazy that a tornado that big would hit there!  Glad to hear you are fine and hopefully your friend is OK too.  Let us know.
