You two are Quad Cities then! Not too far from my neck of the woods. I'm up in the middle of cornfields in the Land of Lakes.


That pic is...wow. Is that a funnel cloud or was there actually a tornado?

ETA: SHould have continued reading - so it was a tornado then!
I'm glad you guys are ok. That thing looks mean!

Thanx about My Story entry!

Yep Quad Cities is correct! Just next to Moline, in Coal Valley actually, but close enough to be called a Quad Citian!


Armed? Oh!! LOL! Those 'visitors' are from the Orion Star System. They have four arms and stand 15 feet tall, have blue/grey skin, and wolven looking snout faces... Razor the Male was banished from His 'Hometown' for killing. He was turned into a statue of stone, until being released from anyone who read a spell/breaking poem, on the base of His statue which was inside a pyramid...

The Female, Mawn, was brought here to Accasia through a portal, that had just appeared near Her close enough to suck Her right into it!! She ended up here inside the same HUGE pyramid where Razor was, that was uncovered by a race of tiny aliens, in spaceships, that used lazers to burn away the fallen trees and brush that covered the pyramid!!

Here's an article about the Storm here yesterday/last night. They aren't sure if there was actually a tornado on the ground or what I guess!? But some damage is evident, from this clip... Will post a pic also of Jumers Castle lodge, (Not really a castle but inside it was all decked out with lots of wrought iron sconces, suits of armor, coats of arms, etc... that is in process of getting torn down anyway, but took some storm damage last night...
Here is the short article that accompanied the photo of The Lodge...

There was an estimated 20,000 MidAmerican Energy customers left without power as the storms rolled by. Crews worked overnight to get power back on, everything should be restored by noon today.
Parts of the QC were under a tornado warning late into last night. The National Weather service will have crews in the area today to figure out if a tornado actually touched down.
Here’s footage of some damage left by the storms on Tanglefoot Lane in Bettendorf. Make sure to take note of the transformer that caught on fire.

Continued from page 136...

He was taken quite by surprise when the woman from the stable glided through the door. Of course, it made sense in retrospect, and he was slightly ashamed he did not draw the logical conclusion as soon as Macosai had given him the order.

Nevertheless, the woman who walked through the door made the nightmare of watching a child at play absurd. Lady Siere Meron must have been nearly his age, although beyond “adult” he had a hard time putting an age to her. Her face was delicate, with porcelain skin and the darkest eyes Gaalen had ever seen, framed by straight chestnut-brown hair that, now freed from its leather binder, fell softly past her shoulders. She had a serious, business-like expression on her face, much as she had in the stable, and carried herself confidently, even regally. However, unlike before she did not appear at all disheveled or tired, and her clothes bore no travel wear. He wondered when she possibly had time to freshen up – he hadn’t been here that long.

Lady Macosai and Gaalen both stood and touched two fingers to their foreheads in respect. Gaalen waited for Lady Macosai to take the lead.
“Lady Meron, it is my pleasure.”

“Lady Macosai,” she replied, offering her hand, “My mother sends her well wishes, and has asked me to convey that you are always welcome at Maarke Lithelwait. It has been too long,” she smiled warmly at her, lighting up her face.

“My duties here keep me in this very room most of my days, but I admit it would be good to see Maarke Lithelwait again. You, my dear girl, are the very image of your mother. I daresay if you stood next to her portrait I would not be able to tell you apart.” She shook her head slightly, then motioned to Gaalen. “May I present Lord Captain Braeghe?”

“Lord Braeghe? Of Braeghe Maarke?” she inquired, turning steady eyes on Gaalen. She did not even glance at his kir.

“The very same, my Lady,” he answered, lowering his head to her. The daughter of even a powerful Easthold Lady was not his equal – at least, not unless she inherited her mother’s Hold – but the woman had an air of authority and elegance about her, and Gaalen did not see the harm in being cordial. Nevertheless, when he raised his head she had arched one eyebrow at him, and a corner of her mouth had turned up in a small, quirky smile.

“It is an honor, my lord,” she said, much to Gaalen’s surprise. “Your father was a great man, Lord Captain,” she continued seriously, “House Meron was grieved to hear of his passing.”

Gaalen was stunned into silence. He recovered quickly, pulling his jaw back up. “I…ah…” he stammered, “Thank you, my Lady.” Gaalen lowered his eyes, embarrassed. Who is this woman? How does she know Father?

“Lord Hyn Braeghe was a man of uncommon virtue,” intervened Lady Macosai, “Fortunately for Avalae, Lord Gaalen shares both his father’s mettle and his mother’s wit,” she finished with a smile.

“You give me too much honor, my Lady,” Gaalen said softly. He did not like to be compared to his father. Lord Hyn’s legacy was…complicated.

“Not at all,” Lady Macosai countered, “but that is a discussion for another time. Please, my Lady, Lord Captain, let us take our ease.”

“Thank you, Lady Captain Commander,” Lady Meron responded.

The grace with which Lady Meron moved as she took one of the other seats in front of Lady Macosai’s table surprised Gaalen. He found himself comparing her movements to the Princess. The Princess has more elegance and grace than any two women you know.

“I understand you are to study at the Temple, my Lady,” Lady Macosai began. “Do you hope to become a Seeress of Aavelae, then?”

It seemed to Gaalen that ice filled Lady Meron’s dark eyes, but her face remained as unreadable as when she walked in. It was gone as fast as it came, leaving Gaalen to wonder if he was imagining things.

“I fear you have been misinformed, Lady Macosai,” she began slowly, “I already hold the rank of Seeress.”

Waves at everyone!

It's been quite a while Pinnochio, nice to see you!


Wow, Syx, scary storm pic!

Shep, some amazing writing there! Good story!!!!

Had fun today with my friend Diane. Tomorrow I should be heading out by noon with my friend Linda to go to the Autumnfest. I have to find my purple floral cane. I don't usually use it, but I don't know how much walking I'll be doing before I can find a wall or bench to sit on when I need to.
