Being an Islander, I am already used to tropical storms, hurricane, power outrages, no phone/internet service warning, no water service and else! BUT, last week, I was ready to deliver an order for a customer and when I reached to my car to load the groceries, I saw these 4 girls taking pictures at the sky when I asked: What’s going on? They immediately pointed at the sky saying: That’s a tornado!!
I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES! I was sooooo nervous at these tornado’s forming that I quickly loaded the groceries in my car when I decided to take a second shot. When I saw those loose clouds around of the wanna-be tornado funnel, I said: Time to move on! I had no chance to take the final pictures of the humongous-super-black cloud sitting right behind of the supermarket on Lake Nona, Florida. Lightnings, darkness, thunders all around that one huge black cloud. It was like there was an entire hurricane dancing right behind and on top of the supermarket!
Obviously, I had no time to TEXT the customer but I did leave voice mail her several times to let her know: I have your groceries in my car. If you don’t see me by your door in 12 mins (by GPS), call the police!
To make the story short, I ended up rushing this customer to help me unload my car. I guess due to this unexpected weather conditions, she had no signal to receive my communication.
….and then I wonder….HOW FAR IN ADVANCE CAN THE WEATHER CHANNELS (whatever their means) WARN US OF A TORNADO??
