I live up towards Alexandria, Louisiana; almost a stone's throw away if you will, and it's just occurred to me how surreal this all was as I was able to pretty much still go about my day with barely a cloud in the sky and a mild breeze. While at the same time, all of this was almost literally happening right next to where I live; I still can't get over how unreal that is.

Those waving live powerlines reminded me of Final Destination it's like they were trying to lure you in closer. My anxiety wouldn't allow me to be a storm chaser. I'm a storm runner.

Brave effort 👍. Those trees that could weather this storm are really hard. And wonderful to see those cattle fighting the storm in their own safe way!

That "roof" was a glorified awning to make the doublewide trailer look more like a regular house. It probably wasn't the best idea considering their location. Having said that, it still sucks that this happened. I'm glad the debris didn't hit their cars or take off the real roof.
