Tornado

Power came back up about 30 minutes ago, it had been down about 2 1/2 hours. The first half hour of that was... interesting... and largely spent in a sweltering bathroom huddled with a cat under sofa cushions. Not a whole lot of damage in my immediate vicinity -- the rain hasn't yet let up enough for me to take a good look around outside -- but what TV stations are still on the air (and they're on bare bones) are showing extensive damage very near here. KWTX is still on backup power, they're reporting. KXXV sustained a direct hit and still is not back on the air. More later...

ADDENDUM: Looked to see if any of the other folks on my f-list around here had posted -- no one yet. bkwrrm_tx? txanne? You guys OK?
