NORTH TEXAS -- Just when we were getting used to the early spring the groundhog predicted, Mother Nature decides to throw a curve ball!

Although this guy apparently knew what was up...

In Hood County near Tolar, a mobile home park was trailer park trashed Tuesday morning.

"Really high winds, trailer started shaking, grabbed the kids, took them straight to the back," one resident told NewsFix.

Around 12 mobile homes were damaged or destroyed and at least two people were taken to the hospital!

"This lady, we found her over on the other side in the middle of the house," one witness explained pointing to the other side of the park. "Johnny Walker had been thrown out of the house and made a big dent at the bottom of that yellow trailer is where he hit!"

Another resident says it's a miracle his trailer came out untouched!

"Not a scratch, I'm the only trailer that didn't get any damage," he explained.

Over in Cool -- 45 minutes west of Fort Worth -- things apparently didn't turn out so cool! Monday night an EF1 tornado swept through the town.

Mayor Dorothy Hall says the city council meeting was interrupted by hail then a roaring tornado.

"It was not straight line winds, it was the roar of a tornado and then devastation," Hall explained. "Straight line winds wouldn't do this."

Mayor Hall says she's doing everything she can to get help from FEMA and anyone else who can clean up and provide necessities for victims.

Turns out, there was a bright side to this dark weather!A North Richland Hills cop saved a pig from the rainy roadways Monday night!

Maybe this little piggy should've stayed home!
