We were out and about today on our bikes but just got back to the condo when it began to blow and rain.

Weatherdude had reported this was coming and I really do not like it, but it just happened-- alert from the Feds came via cell phone text.

Extreme Tornado Warning.
Take Cover Now

We first retired to a remote fishing village on Galveston Bay, later sold it and now spend part time in Santa Fe, NM.  Not used to getting Tornado warnings while here.

All  part of our shiny new weather patterns these days.

Guess I'll keep kosing until I hear the choo choo train sound of a tornado coming.

Did you see this?

or this ?

Whew, it had been raining and

Okay, now back, big gust!

Just checked out NOAA radar loop for Santa Fe and looks like a big storm cell is heading our way.  http://radar.weather.gov/...

5:00 PM PT: Just checked the NWS site for Santa Fe and they have taken down the Tornado warning.  Thanks for all the good wishes!  They worked!

6:09 PM PT: Update 2 While the tornado watch ended, just saw this on NWS  "

.NOW...

THROUGH EARLY EVENING...SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS

WILL CONTINUE TO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE UPPER RIO GRANDE VALLEY AND

NORTHWEST MOUNTAINS. STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING

WIND GUSTS AROUND 50 MPH WITH SMALL HAIL...A BRIEF DOWNPOUR AND

OCCASIONAL CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING."

50mph gusts, now that's 10 below hurricane force. Ack.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
