It's just about 9:00 on Saturday night and we're outside the police department in Des Peres.
We're editing video for the 10pm newscast.
It's starting to rain again. It's been a strange mixture of weather today. We had dark, threatening skies, then hail, then a downpour and then blue skies and sunshine and back to darkened storm clouds that looked as if they were there to deliver a twister.
We talked to some homeowners in Kirkwood who had their homes damaged from the storm. Let me say this right off the bat---if your home was damaged by the storm I understand it can be a hassle and a pain and you could have some headaches ahead of you. But tonight there are no reports of any serious injuries and no deaths. I worked in Oklahoma for a few years. I covered some of the devastation from tornadoes. I remember going to one town that had been hit by a twister and standing in the middle of what used to be a neighborhood. You could turn around 360 degrees. Everywhere you looked, as far as the eye could see, was nothing but rubble.
A headache like what we had today we can live with.
