"It's a Twister....It's a Twister!" (The Wizard of Oz)

Sunday night I got a call from my little sister Kelsee telling me there had been a tornado in Billings, MT. She and Tyler had been out at my parent's house for fathers day (poor dad only had two people there on fathers day.....sorry daddy, we love you!) anyways, there was a storm warning scrolled across the screen. They changed the channel to the local news and they were surprised to see a tornado had hit the area, there was massive flooding and hail, and that the tornado had ripped the roof of the Metra Event Park.

Kelsee and Tyler jumped in the car and headed home since their house was only 5 miles from the Metra. Plus they are moving out in a week and what a bummer it would be to have your house flooded a week before you move out!
Tyler's mom and sister were also traveling home from a basketball tournament and were called and told by friends to get off the road and under shelter. The friends' windshield and back window had been completely busted by baseball sized hail. Kelsee told me the next day she had walked out onto their lawn and found huge divots in the lawn from the hail.
