Should have been studying for a final
exam but couldn't concentrate with a PDS (Potentially Dangerous
Situation) tornado watch box for our area until 9 PM.
Left Norman around 4:15 PM with Valerie and headed north on
I-35. Took exit 117 (US-37) in Moore and drove west just
a few miles. A tornado was reported in Tuttle moving east,
directly in our path. With rush-hour road congestion,
we decided to play it safe, turn around, and drive south on
I-35 to keep a safe distance. Just before we got to the
on-ramp, we observed the tornado moving through Moore...only
a mile or so to our north.
