Tornado? 2011

As I mentioned in today's Thankful Monday post, last night we had a terrible storm rip through our neighborhood. There were no confirmed reports, but the news was speculating it was a tornado.
 This car two doors down from us wasn't so lucky.
Apparently, the storm system created several tornadoes that just briefly touched down. Based on the damage, it wouldn't surprise me if that's what happened.
This is what's left of the tree that fell on the car.

It was definitely the scariest storm I've ever been through, and I'm from Texas, so I'm no stranger to tornadoes. I've never been so thankful to have a basement, where we huddled down until it passed. Thankfully, our house and cars were fine, but I can't say the same about some of our neighbors. We also don't have power, and based on what it did to our power lines, I'm thinking it might be a little while before we do.
 I'm pretty sure power line poles aren't supposed to lean like that.
 And they're definitely not supposed to do this.
 And I'm thankful for our wonderful landlord and his generator.
