Default Rough Day & Night with yesterdays Tornandos

Up here we listened to tornando sirens through the night and one touched down just north of my sons home in Paulding Co. and many other areas and states had multiple deaths and damages. Send out a prayer if you don't mind to some of these families, thank you.

I pretty certain you know where you are, at least I hope so, but it would be enlightening for us to know where you are talking about.

It rocked and rolled here in ATL last night. My generator cut on for an hour or so. A tree must have come down somewhere in the neighborhood.

I was in three separate tornado WARNINGS yesterday. My drill is to watched the radar until the cells gets too close, then head for the basement. Our son and his family got wiped out (but not hurt) in Tuscaloosa last year, but we all were missed yesterday.

I went through hurricane Andrew and it was really bad but I don't think there is anything worse than a tornado. At least with a hurricane you have a window to prepare but not with a tornado. My prayers go out to everyone affected.

My wife is headed to Lousiville in a few months to spend a year training. I have lived my whole life on the east coast. Hearing how close they were to the KY border is really freaking me out right now.

Weatherman sorry to hear about your son.

My MS daughter has sorta made a job of this since they closed her place of employment. Last year she went to Tuscaloosa, Huntstsville Smithfield and Belmont and so far this year she is now in Branson MO but was in someplace outside Birmingham earlier this year. Flaming Liberal do gooder and chip off the old block and scaring the crap out of me. Uses up all her unemployment check and then some doing this .... Very proud of her.

Sorry to hear of all the losses and devastation and hope everyone recovers soon!

LI Sound Grunt - Kudos to your daughter - she is giving something back!

A few days ago it was rough here in Kansas. There was one fatality south of Topeka along with a lot of damage. However, it seems like Missouri, Indiana, Alabama and some other places have been hit even harder.

It looks like we are moving to Connecticut, so this may be our last season in tornado country.

Prayers out to all those affected by these storms.

Pete

Thanks. They weren't hurt, so everything else can be replaced. They were in Gulfport during Katrina, and Tuscaloosa during the tornadoes. Don't want to be anywhere near them in 5 years...

Had one touch down a mile or so from here and another touch ground a few miles from here, luckily no injuries.

Myself, wife and four cats huddled in a small 'walk in' closet for a few hours listening to weather reports, two different times. A very interesting day yesterday.
