A Few Blooms, Tornados & a Kitten

Look what showed up

At least 15 tornados have touched down in the Tri-County Area between 7:45 p.m. and 9:15 p.m., and a tornado watch for much of central Illinois remains in effect until 11 p.m.

Two of those tornados hit Elmwood four minutes apart, causing what witnesses said looked like a war zone.

Officials there said there were no apparent injuries or fatalities as of 9:30 p.m.

Tornados also touched down in Peoria, Hanna City, Washington and East Peoria. Damage reports from those twisters we not immediately available.

After I took the pictures below

I am terrible, but I LOVE tornado weather...I could do without the tornado itself though. Growing up in Tornado Alley Kansas, it reminds me of summers at home. Your flowers are beautiful by the way :)
