  • We rarely get thunderstorms where we live... I actually miss them... Not the deadly ones... I agree, hope all CMr's are ok..

  • We get spring and fall storms but the worst that ever happens is the power gets knocked out and some tree branches smash peoples cars and houses.

  • We're getting them on and off all day today. I'm hoping they clear out earlier than expected because I have a rare girls' night out planned tonight. We get really bad storms every spring here in TN, with lots of tornadoes and damaging straight line winds. Our new house is almost all windows on the bottom floor and we don't have a basement, so they freak me out all the time. I imagine my son and I will probably be hanging out in the laundry room/guest bathroom on and off today if we have tornado warnings with the storms.

  • We got the tail end of the system last night. Wild winds, hail and lots of rain. Thunder and lightening too. It was moving pretty fast so it didn't last more than an hour. We have some hellacious winds today though.
