Ryan and I were working on drywalling his basement when we noticed that the sky had turned green outside. We went up to investigate, and saw that the storm had narrowly missed us. I got a phone call from my editor that there were reports coming in of damage just up the road so we jumped his truck and drove the short four miles to North Bradley. We found the worst of it and I took a few photos there before we went to check on Ryan's sister's home which was near the damage path. The twister passed within 200 yards of her house. Fortunately, no one was injured in the storm.
