Speaking of Storms... How many of you have been affected by this storm system?

I can't believe the strength of this system. Today was the first time I got to hear the new, enhanced storm alert. I didn't like it.

So, check in and let us know you are Okay.

  • first time this year (that i remember , or heard) tornado sirens
    we lucked put, seems to have hit just north and just south

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Severe weather raced through southeast Wisconsin late Sunday morning, November 17th. Those who were in the path of the storms were witness to torrential downpours, localized flooding, pea-sized to quarter-sized hail and the threat for tornadoes.

    we missed the hail, and tornadoes, not even high winds
    i went to food store after it passed, some roads, very high water
