Dallas area Mefites: this afternoon's tornadoes were absolutely insane. Here's hoping everyone's ok. Everyone's ok, right?

We were lucky. After initial reports that the earliest of the twisters was headed straight toward our house in Oak Cliff (and after I rounded up the cats and crammed them into the closet under the stairs), we were somehow spared from even the most minor of hail. The footage that's being repeated endlessly on television is like nothing I've ever seen before, though. That shit is crazy, what with the tractor-trailers being tossed about like they're made of balsa wood.
Unofficial tornado count today in the D/FW: 12. Holy cowshit.
Again: everyone ok?
