    At least most people's lights aren't up yet...

    Good question. Clemmons must have a curse or something to that nature.

    It was an interesting night - stayed up till about 12:30 to see whether one of those storms was headed in my direction or not. I know there was some damage reported up near Sandy Ridge...

    William, were you running around with Craig Thomas up and down I-40 last night?

    Mark thats what I was thinking or was he making Craig run solo last night. I was the same way staying up and watching way to close for comfort, and todays were even closer! One of our rent houses had a Leonard outbuilding float into the yard talking about a shock to stop and check on the rental property and find a out building sitting right next to the house that wasnt there before the ran. And the bad thing is it literaly floated seeing that it stradled the top of the septic tank lid. Lets just get through this last line and wipe ou hands of this one........heres to fingers crossed! Everyone stay safe out there.

    LOL. I was watching from the comfort of my chair last night.

    By the time I would arrive, they would have been gone.

    Tornados were spotted near Vic's house. I called him and left a voicemail. I hope he is alright.

    A couple years ago, I was up at Kerr Lake setting up our RV for the weekend (by myself as Deb was still at work) when a tornado actually passed over where I was. It destroyed on one side of the park then skipped over me and tore up the area on the other side of the park. It could not have been more than a few hundred yards that it missed. I had advanced warning from the weather radio, and as soon as I heard it and knew the tornado was near I called Deb and told her I loved her as I knew death was near because no shelter was nearby. But the storm skipped over me and now I can be a pain in Dave's butt. I wasn't skeered.

    Scarey enough last night rotation passed within about 3 miles of here, then today rotation was seen by radar within about a mile of here and then they spotted rotation again tonight within about 3 miles again.........getting tired of this! Now speaking of camping we were in Myrtle Beach back in the earlier 2000's when the tornado hit during the July 4th weekend and it passed right over the campground we stay at and by the time anyone knew what was going on there was no where to go.
