    Not a normal event in Idaho. I stood on my roof and video taped it. Interesting stuff to see.

    Re: Just had a tornado touch down near us!

    I'd love too see that footage. I used to live in a area that got tornados every spring. I used to "Chase" them. I volentiered with the local storm spotters. It was exciting getting out on the country roads reporting on locations and dirrections. Yes, I had to dive out of the truck into a ditch more thenn once. Never lost a vechile though.

    I'm going to get it on the computer now. I called the local news and they are going to come over and borrow the tape. Looks like I might be the only person that got it.

    Quite a ways off. We get a tornado about every 5 years here and never in town. the mountains mess it all up.

    That whole cloud thing rolled right over the my house. I sat on the roof and just watched it. there was more swirling stuff going on but once they get over the hills it seems to get messed up to much. Still cool to watch.
