Default Dallas tornado 10/20/19: Everyone OK?

For those that don't know, last night a tornado went through NE Dallas and Dallas area suburbs. Fortunately I'm well north of that area, so all is well up here in the rural area north. Everyone OK in Dallas? Check in and let us know how you're doing!

Morning,

Other than losing power, we didn't have any damage. The first storm skated around us, but the second one came on the outskirts of our area. Lots of strong winds blew some of my empty wine bottles over and around the patio. Earlier in the evening, we were able to look towards the east and see the light show (posted on Facebook). Donny - you ok?

I heard from Donny...thankfully it missed him, but not by much. He may have needed a shorts change that he's not admitting to, but that's about it.

Was a bit north of me, had a lot of rain and wind. Most damage was in Dallas metro in path of tornado. Part of Texas weather.
