What an Exciting Weekend It was!  Did a Twister Touch Down in Willis, TX.?
There was nothing on the local news, or any other news stations, however, I have a first hand account!
It was Sunday afternoon and a storm - or at least light rain had rolled in. There was nothing showing on the radar except the typical lightning and rain storms.  We were anxiously getting ready to have lunch with my parents when the strangest noise was coming from outside.  We didn't know if it was a transformer, or the air conditioner.  It sounded like a humming sound and swishing.  It … (8 comments)
