Last night we stood out on the deck and looked toward the Northwest of us. We had the unique position of a clear view straight toward the town of Clinton, Arkansas, a mere dozen miles away. They say the huge funnel cloud stayed on the ground for approximately 100 miles and had a force of up to 200 miles per hour. While we didn't actually see the funnel ourselves we saw the extreme lightening and heard the roar that really does sound like a train. The devastation such a storm causes is heartbreaking, and death is sometimes part of the mix. Our heart goes out to all those in harm's way.
