Storm Check-in Cmitch, CLK, MorganA, Yosey, Edfreeman, chromey

Guys,

For those who question the climate and the lack of hurricanes this past year, we just had one. The barometric pressure dropped to 29.55 at 1000ft. Winds hit 78mph on my Davis weather station and 74mph at the Airport 2 miles away.

There are 23 reported dead already and it is not dawn yet. These storms moved through Arkansas, Tennessee, Bama, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio like a rocket.

Everyone check in so we can make sure we got all the toes in place.

McBear,
Kentucky

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Yes, heard about it on the news on the way home tonight, sounds bad...

Best of luck to those affected/involved.

Sorry to hear such a loss of life, the physical destruction must be severe (I still don't have TV in my new house - only got internet back tonight so haven't seen any vision)

Hope all our fellow BWrs and theirs are OK.

Having lived through 2 cyclones and 1 hurricane - they are not fun...

Present and accounted for, sir. Thanks for asking. Looks like we'll get the real winds here over the next couple hours. The guards told me of a tornado watch as I walked in the gate.

I was outside drinking last night and I noticed everything was spinning around I thought it was because I was drunk, and that would also explain why I woke up this morning with grass in my mouth.

Thanks for the concern, mcbear. It got ROUGH here about 1:30 a.m. CST, winds about 60 mph and hail hitting the windows. But, it was small hail and no serious damage. However, Moulton, Alabama, a town about 45 miles southeast of here got it bad. There are already 3 found dead and possibly more to come. They figure that the super cell that dropped the somewhat large F2 tornado in Lawrence County, AL spawned actually 3, but only one touched down. I'm so glad I live in a brick home because I think I would have lost some vinyl siding on that one last night.
