We had an F2 tornado northeast of me in Cridersville, OH
and south of me two barns were flattened. I was out and
about and heard tornado sirens going off while I was in
the parking lot at a Burger King. Wasn't sure what to do
at the moment. Here at home not much happened. It was
windy and rained about one inch.
Flyers are definitely survivors and can get by adversity.
I wonder if they got to the tree with the feeder by air
or by land. Sure would be interesting to know...
