A tornado watch is in effect in my neck of the woods -- namely, the Bay Area, including Morgan Hill, where my favorite cigar store is located. Call out the national guard! Sandbags now!!
Seriously, I have never seen a tornado in California, though I lived through several as a child in New Mexico and Missouri. Winds have been strong here and it has been raining heavily. My band practice was called off due to a prolonged power outage in San Jose. Tornado? I'll believe it when my roof disappears.
Right now the weather is fairly mild -- no wind, but the streets are still quite wet.
Update for Jan 21 (Thursday) -- The U.S. Severe Weather Map doesn't show any tornado warnings for California today, but there are plenty of warnings about possible flooding. See the map here.
