Batten Down The Hatches!

Looks like we're staring down the barrel of a severe storm.

75MPH winds and TWO INCH hail. So far this year, all the big storms have slid by either slightly North or South of us.

This one is bearing down on us. passed by with only some "moth ball" sized hail, and ~20 minutes of heavy rain.

There were severe storm warnings popping up all over the area, and at one time there were 4 tornado warnings.

When the NWS declares this to be "A Dangerous Storm" on the emergency warnings they break into radio stations with, I sit up and listen......


  1. Let us know how it works out.

  2. Just back from a shopping run. Intense 30 minutes sitting in my truck along with twenty or so others under the Safeway gas pump canopy. Marble sized hail.

  3. We got some moth ball sized stuff, and about 20 minutes of heavy rain, then it cleared.

    The NWS is still calling for a 70% chance of thunderstorms, but looks like everything slid by us again.


Keep it civil, please....
