Unhappy Tornadoes here again...

Uh... the tornado sirens are going off here right now. Flipped the TV on and - this is unusual, 'cos the city usually isn't involved - they're talking parts of Memphis, including where my sister and brother-in-law live, and "possibly" my area of town. It sounds like one tornado has been seen and confirmed and another "possible" one. Needless to say I am not exactly thrilled right now... been thru one tornado this year, that was enough!!!

If the power stays on I'll post as soon as the danger's passed...

Thanks y'all. It has been really REALLY nasty here since last night with flooding, tornadoes and just bad storm stuff and pretty much all over the whole Mid-South area, but it looks like in my immediate area anyway (and the parts of West TN I'm about to be driving thru) it's just mostly lots of rain and some flash flooding. The interstate ought to be pretty much OK today tho. I'm still watching the news to make sure everything will be alright today.

Monica, check in, dear - I saw on the news weather map all that mess we had late last night headed your way before I fell asleep, so let us know you're OK when you can...

OK, the weather is still crappy but I'm on my way to upper Northwest TN... think the real danger is over in this area so we're getting on the road. Surely I can't get caught in a second tornado this year!!!

See y'all Sunday night, everyone have a good rest of the weekend...

Am back home now and thank goodness the weather stayed pretty uneventful the rest of the weekend. There was a good bit of damage around the area Friday night but thankfully nothing on the scale of a couple of weeks ago.

We have always had a couple of tornado seasons per year here, but not really at this level and this quantity... I am kinda scratching my head over why our weather suddenly seems more like Kansas' or Oklahoma's or out that way! I think we've had about enough here at this point, but I fear it's gonna get worse as June tends to be very stormy around here. Thanks y'all for your well-wishes and caring...
