    My hubby was just caught in that tonight. He took refuge under an overpass (yes, I told him that you told him that was bad but he said everyone else was doing that), and then provided refuge to 4 college girls who were under the overpass too. They had gotten out of their car because they were afraid it was going to blow away. He watched another semi get blown over.

    They had Tornados AGAIN last night in far Nor'Eastern Colorado into the pan-handle of Nebraska near Big Springs.
    I had one cross I-80 right behind me yesterday. I got video of the sudden change of wind direction and then stopped on the eastern edge to see if I could video the tornado from an over-pass, but base-ball sized hailstones chased me back into my truck and down the highway as fast as I could get. It was headed straight for Big Springs at 3:25pm MST.
    I will post the YouTube video as soon as it is processed.

    Used to travel 30 between Chappell and Ogallala daily for work. One night coming home, had three of them around me. Headed to Big Springs and sat at the TS. No safe route for me to go. That area is notorious for small F1-2 tornadoes just popping out of no where. I never messed around with getting too close to them, because out there, they jump, or seem to hop around the fields. Didn't have any desire to see if it would bounce over to me. LOL
