Todays Forcast.. Frightening!!

This was taken outisde my work around 9 pm today. I went into work knowing there was severe thunderstorms but I thought nothing of it. Well, I guess I should have known better. I work in the kitchen so its extremely loud with the buzzing of the ovens and ice machine evaporator. I didn't know that the tornado siren had went off. The cashier came around and said," Where's JeanAnne, its bad outside and she needs to check the radar." So ofcourse we had a tornado warning south of us. We are right on the countyline mark so if you go accross that street you see in the picture, that would be the county that is under the warning. So we closed off the play tubes and kept an eye on the radar. Thankfully everything went okay and there were enough customers in there that we could have grabbed them quickly if need be.
Now as far as I go.... I was freaking out. I have lilapsophobia which is a fear of tornados or hurricanes. Just looking at this picture makes my heart race. I am fine if I am indoors in a home or store. When I am driving; that is another story. If I had to drive somewhere and saw clouds like above, no way would I go near them. Infact, I have drove 2 counties out of my way just to steer clear of a storm. I wont go on about it but I will say that this has been an interesting and above all stressful, day. OY!!
