While my mother told me tornado stories from yesterday, and another friend had to interrupt a phone conversation as she paid attention to a tornado in another part of Oklahoma, and as my daughter called me from Dallas to tell me of hearing sirens go off and trying to remember what to do in case of tornado warnings.... this photo of the sunset behind the lighthouse by Michael Danielson at Oklahoma City's Lake Hefner, where I once worked with a friend to establish a system of trails around the lake, is making the rounds. Long sentence, great photo. Such a place of beauty in an area of the country that has more tornadoes than anywhere else.
We used to yell cheers: Go, Cyclones. That was what we called our sports teams.
My first home survived (barely) a tornado that was so destructive it's damage path made the cover of National Geographic. That was in Oklahoma. Many sunsets ago.
