Weather this past week in Ada. OK

 Every city has its name printed on a water tower. This is how you know through what city you travel.
Our tornado warning on Saturday, May 23, 2015. The orange cone shows the tornado area near Ada. We were caught in a torrential downpour of hail and rain, could hardly see to drive, as we headed to a member's shelter in the area. We stayed inside for about 45 minutes.  The kids were playing games on my Ipad to keep them occupied. We think the tornado was spotted about five miles from us. We heard an alarm on our phone, then the tornado sirens in the city as we hurried to the shelter. Quite exciting!
Storm clouds gathering on Memorial Day. 

This is a picture of our friend's ranch south of Ada. They sandbagged the patio area near the house. This "pond" is now a lake and the dock has been underwater for two weeks. Notice how high the water is on the trees. This is the largest amount o rainfall for more than 100 years here, and the most rain in May that has ever been recorded. The ground is saturated and there is flooding in the low lands. The weather has been stormy all through the Midwest, Texas and Colorado. There is not a drought anymore!
