ONE MORE POST and I almost went to OZ last night!!

GUYS the next post will be my 1000th post and I almost didn't make it!! Last night in Phoenix we had a TORNADO. Actually 2 of them touched down if you believe the news. Mom has been here for 13 years and there have NEVER been tornadoes. It was windy and scary and raining like crazy and I was so not impressed! I thought we might need a boat to ever get out of our house. Mom made these videos of how scary and wet it was. The street by our house was like a river!! Sorry the videos are dark but, it was night time!!

This first one has not much excitement in the beginning but then you see a van driving through the river, it was crazy!

I told Mom to crack this open...

Squall IPA

And share some with me!!! We were definitely in a squall!! Luckily we are ok and our house didn't float away. I would have been super bummed if I missed making my 1000th post!!!

Oh man Joey, I was so worried about you. I'm very relieved to hear you are okay. Were your grams and gramps okay too?

I also knew you would be so super brave and help your mom get through it. Hope you two didn't get too drunk.

Crazy weather! Guess your storm sewers aren't buildt for that kind of water! I know how you feel though, we get crazy stuff here all the time - we just expect it! Doesn't make it any less scary, mom HATES when they put up tornado warnings!! Hope that storm has blown itself out by now :)

Dear Joe and Tanner

We have been watching the weather in Azrizona, because we still have friends and family there. I have been thinking about how scared you must have been! Muzzer talked to us last night on the phone and said that this was a real a nomma lee, that she didn't remember anything like it for thirty years when she was there. She sadi to tell you not to will be a while before it happens again.

Oh, and at least the bridge across the Salt River is still holding

Crazy and insane, Joey. We heard that there were tornadoes in AZ AND three foot snowfalls how weird is that! And here we are sitting in the center of the Midwest with no snow at all!!! We are glad you are safe but we know it must have been so hard for you. Can't wait for #1000. Stay safe.

So glad to hear that you guys survived the storms and tornado. We get those kind of storms every spring and summer, but its still very scary.

Wow Joe...that was a close call!

We live near a nuclear plant, and our great aunt always said that if the "big one" came, she was going to sit on her front porch, naked, and drink herself into oblivion.

The Squall IPA is a good start on oblivion!!

we were worried about you. Glad you came out of it OK!
We had one of those tornados once. Mom made us all go to the basement and stand in the stairwell. The cats didn't want to do it cause I was barking.

omdog Joey, it's like you were in Babablama!

My favorite post of yours is that one where you and me and Sophie go to Vegas to celebrate your 1000th post - even though Tanner did have that unfortunate incident with the roulette wheel...

Joey, I hope the sun comes out for your 1000th post. It's just not right to have all that rain where you are, and especially tornados. Those are scary. I'm glad you're OK.

oh my, those vids are scary!

Keep safe Joe, keep safe!

When we had the big freeze a few weeks back, someone drove a 4 x 4 up the frozen river!

That is such a lot of water you guys are getting, hope your Dad has plenty of Scotch to keep him warm.

I checked out the cupboard here, my Dad has some Japanese whisky too!

One of my human bruvs gave it to him for Christmas.

I am so glad you are still here and going to make your 1000th post!
