Default Weather Channel

Jim Cantore of the Weather channel has checked into a hotel in my little-country-area of the world for the severe weather we are expecting today. Schools are letting out at 12:15 so???

As a former native Floridian....

I am having to do the same.

I wondered if you were included in this southern event. Stay safe!

When I check out weather.gov (NOAA) it does not sound quite so catastrophic. I will take down the deck umbrellas, garden flags and put away the lightweight playground toys. Seems the rest will be unnecessary.

"Scattered thunderstorms will occur at times through tonight. Any thunderstorm will be capable of cloud-to-ground lightning. Tonight, a line of thunderstorms will move in from the west, posing a risk of damaging winds and hail up to 1 inch in diameter, and a tornado cannot be entirely ruled out. High near 70. Calm wind becoming east southeast 5 to 9 mph in the morning. Winds could gust as high as 20 mph (yawn). Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible."

Um, that is the south on any given day.

The sun has come out here for a brief moment and that is something that we didn't want to see before the storms begin this evening. Didn't need that warmth to fuel these storms.

Ok, now it is getting really loud and a bit creepy. Boom. Shakes the house. The wind is perfectly still, though. Very dark, with HUGE lightening bolts.

Of course, the kids are down for nap.... and the dogs are losing their minds. Let's see how long it takes before everyone is up.

I have a Discord server where my friends chatter during their lunch breaks, and everybody who was in the path of the fatal tornado last year is on right now discussing weather radios and taking a mental health day from work. Lasting emotional trauma and anxiety from getting hit by a tornado is common around here! We're in a gap in the storms right now but the city is flooded, my kid's school was inaccessible shortly after early pick up, and tornadoes are possible tonight. Curses!
