Tornado Hits First Monday Canton, Texas

Wow! A tornado hit in Canton Trade Days and makes Cnn and the weather channel across America..I can't believe Larry and I were standing right there just watching it go by! I have to say this is the closest ever we have come to a tornado. The NWS said it was an EF-1. It was yards from us and fear was on everyones face! Shock was on ours. No warnings whatsoever..just BAM!!! Tornado...Some vendors had everything destroyed while must of us Thanked God we were all unhurt. This same tornado storm hit Aranksas and killed 7. And today we are expecting some horrible storms..I must say I look alot closer at the clouds now. In the end..we are all Thankful and feeling lucky! I also would like to say..I never want to be that close again. It was amazing the damage done in secs..enough to make me want to duck and cover..lol...huge trees were snapped like toothpicks..we for sure are no match to mother nature!

So glad nobody was hurt. We have been through quite a few tornados and it never ceasese to amaze me the people that still stand around and watch (esp. when they have a basement to go into)! I have heard of the fabulous Canton vendors and how sad, to have that happen. Good luck with your blog!

I heard about the storms on the news and didn't think too much about it until they mentioned Canton. Then I thought of all you lovely P.E.P ladies who go there! I'm so glad to hear you're ok.
