    My wife works in Windsor

    Just missed her. There are lots of members who live near the path, I hope they're all right.

    No laughing matter

    I live/work in Longmont and at 12:30, my wife called to tell me that she and the young'uns where huddled in the basement. 15 minutes later, my employer hearded 2000 of us in to the interior of the 1st floor (hallways, conference rooms, etc) for about 15 minutes. We where told NOT to leave the building.

    I think it's in Cheyanne right now.

    Crazy! I was home for lunch watching CNN provide live coverage. One reporter said that the tornado was so freakin huge that their film crew didn't even realize it was a tornado at all. They thought they were filming a large dust cloud and realized it was a tornado only after they backed away a bit.

    It was a bit sketchy here in Longmont, sirens going off, forecasters giving tornado warnings (not watches)....Just like living back in Oklahoma.

    Sustained hail for about 20 minutes as the storm passed, got to be somewhere around quarter size at the biggest.

    I was out doing a training ride in Poudre Canyon. Nothing crazy other than steady rain, wind, some small hail, and then some sketchy lightening...which had me turning around to head low pretty fast. I dropped back into Fort Collins, and the skies were black. Turned on the TV when I got in the house and see a tornado rolled through Windsor...about 5 miles from my house

    Funny, Jdub, my wife said exactly the same thing. In Oklahoma, this wouldn't be a big deal at all - it would probably make local news coverage, but most likely after the "Oh my god the price of oil hit another record high" report that has been coming out daily these days.

    Not to make light of the tragic aspect of what's happened here - my best wishes to those effected by this storm. Mother nature always manages to remind us who's the boss.
