I just got back in from going out and checking out a livestock pipeline and a water storage facility south-east of Crane, Texas on a ranch which splits the Crane and Upton County line, and man it rained and hailed and tornadoed. I didn't see the tornado, but they were announcing where it was at, and that was the place I had just left. So maybe what I went and looked at is no longer there.....the pipeline should still be in the ground hopefully. HAHA. I got the hell out of there when I seen it coming and heard the warnings and only drove through heavy heavy rain and hail.

Welcome to West Texas. Grew up around that area. Those city folks used to always complain about those toronados. Never could understand why they didn't just put the wheels back on their houses and move.
