Oklahoma Crazy & Table Progress

I don't know if everyone has heard or not but we've had some crazy weather in Oklahoma lately. Earthquakes, tornados, crazy wind. Luckily I was out of town for most of the earthquake action; but driving home on Monday this was going on not far from our home:

The sirens went off in Altus but it never touched down. Later we found out the tornado touched down about 20 miles down the road. Scary stuff! We've only lived here for 5 months and I'll never say that there's nothing exciting happening in Oklahoma again.

In spite of all that action I was able to do a little bit of work on my reclaimed wood coffee table. I began taking the nails out of the wood. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I used a hammer to pry most of them out.

There were a lot

Some of the other nails needed a little more work. These were hammered down at an angle, so I used my Dremel Tool to saw the ends off.

I'm heading to the wood shop on Base tomorrow to work on this and another project. Hoping to get this done before any holiday parties come up!

Yikes! I'm so glad I don't live in an area that's prone to tornadoes. Are earthquakes common in OK?

They are common, but not felt very often. They believe it is due to fracking.....oil drilling technique. Tornados are extremely common but at least with those you can find shelter under ground.
