tornado Cornell, IL June 7,2008

Ok this was one of the scariest moments in my life. The news said there was a tornado in the Flanagan area moving in our direction,we of course,being the curious people we are,went directly to our back door and looked out and low and behold there it was. A cloud the size of Texas rotating and we new what was going to happen.We stood there about 5 minutes maybe longer and could start seeing the funnel cloud at the bottom of the cloud.I kept saying it's going to come down it's going to come down.Needless to say I was freaking!Grabbed my camera,and of course hubby was yelling at me to get the ground and I was shaking so bad I could hardly get the pics.I was also crying cuz i didnt know where it came down and I was praying that noone got hurt.It did land in a field and nothing was damaged and there were no injuries but it did come back down about 20 miles from our home in the Dwight,IL area. There was one farm that was hit but no one was injured. They did lose there home,barn and one cow.
