Oh ... Really?

Storm of the Century?

They have been warning about this storm system for two days ... it's here now. Tornados have already touched down in Middle Tennessee. There is now a tornado warning in Morgan Co, about 40 miles due west of here. It's coming this way.

Will update as long as I have power and cable internet!

Local radar

7:19 TV news is now telling people in Morgan Co to take cover immediately. Tornado Warning.
7:27 The storm with tornadic activity is head straight for me. Yikes! (I have a bathroom under the stairs I can shelter in)
7:42 It looks like this first storm is tracking to the north some. But there are more cells behind it. It is going to be a long night.

I'm going to try to get some video of this.

Internet service just hiccupped ... TV cable didn't even flicker. And my web server is all flakey tonight too. Gotta do something about that ..

8:25 - Just confirmed, 10 people have died as a result of this string of storms.

Dark now ... which makes this even more scary. You can't see the funnel clouds form ... you don't know there's a tornado until it's right on you. Gah ..

10:10 The second line of storm is here, not as strong as the first, but this time it is right on top of us. The TV news has already gone back to regularly scheduled programming. They spent several hour going on and on about the storms. The weather guy was having a joygasm while he talked about the storm cells, funnel clouds, and on and on ... then one of the news anchors reminded him that the storms that were getting him all excited had killed ten people so far. Man, what a sheepish look he had then!

Yep, gonna be a long night. Noisy one too. Meanwhile, Preston wonders "Where is George Bush?" Nice snark, Preston. Heh.
