  • Unanticipated Campout

    earlier today a front that spawned heavy thunderstorms and spawned tornadoes from Texas all the way NC hammered our area ..... almost all of our 100 counties had severe thunderstorm and/or tornado warnings ..... tornadoes touched down all around us but none in our immediate area .... thankfully we have seen and heard of damage to property but not of any injuries .... our power went off around 5PM and is still off as this is being typed .... so, we fired up our camper's generator and have moved it for the night ..... back in '05 when we had it built we chose to add a generator and we are glad we did .... in thinking back we know we've used it for shelter during power outages a half dozen or so times

        you would be most welcome to keep such fronts down there .... our power came back on around 11PM and we have moved back into the house .... sure hope we don't see any more such storms for a long while

            Heavy Damage But No Injuries pretty well sums up the impact of yesterdays storms to our area .... the best part of the news is no serious injuries .... very soggy this morning, after lunch I plan to mow our yard for the first time this spring .... life returns to normal ( I HOPE )
            Severe storms that spawned several reports of tornadoes left behind damage across the Triangle on Friday.

              My sister and bro-in-law have been visiting for about a week; they are staying in their RV a few miles away and were very interested in this weather event as their place is on the banks of the French Broad River just over the line in E. Tenn. He has cameras to monitor his property and was glued to his phone while the water rose. Neighbors moved his lawn furniture as it would be gone now as the river crested its banks.
