After Tornados Ripped Through The Region, Downtown Dallas Somehow Shined Even Brighter.
Right around sundown yesterday evening, an eerie calm washed over the city. It was bizarre, to say the least. The entire region had been up in arms just hours prior, the result of at least a dozen tornadoes tearing through the Dallas area. There was damage, sure, but fortunately there were few injuries and, to much relief, no deaths to speak of.
Perhaps that's why things seemed so surreal right around 8 o'clock. Everyone seemed to be in shock, dismayed by the events that had taken place, but perhaps more so by the lack of extreme tragedy.
The bright yellow tint the sunset cast over Dallas last night only added to this unreal sentiments. More than anything else, the whole night felt more like a Hollywood production — one that, though perhaps not capped with an outright happy ending, sure didn't feel like a tragic end, either.
