The beauty of the situation is that, since you-know-who has made it clear that he is always too busy and important to concern his august self with disaster relief, coverage of such tragedies will be tamped down on the MSM.

Unless, perhaps, a Democrat governor or black mayor decides to hold his feet to the fire...

My girlfriend’s parents live there. Houses on each side of them where damaged and their yard is full of debris. All we know now.

This tornado outbreak started here in East Texas last night. Damaged at least two towns in our county. We were without power for nearly four hours -- and we live on a main rural highline that serves a quarter of the county.

Prayers for the folks who have been hit or are still in its path!

Sitting here at work, watching it come in from the west. It’s been twilight all day - doesn’t look to get any better.

Good Friday Outbreak - I hope it doesn’t become a historical term.

Watching East Tennesse at Weather.Gov - warning red popping up all over the place. Looking kind of green outside.

We're getting rain, moderate winds and some lightning here in Knox County...as of 5:44 PM EST.

There goes the rolling thunder. It looks ominous.

I'm near the Anderson/Knox/Union line. Looks like we escaped a lot of it. The way they talked about 45 minutes ago a tornado was headed my way but it looks like it's pretty well died down. I sure can't gripe about the rain though. Rain patterns are getting back to normal finally. We're finally out of the drought as of this week I think. Clouds breaking off now around here.

I remember the Union and Grainger county tornado in the 1970's. It started out on Chuck Swan managed area in the Pond Hollow area and went all the way across through Washburn climbing the ridges. Very unusual. And the Mossy Grove tornado in Morgan County about 10 years ago was a real bad one. TEMA couldn't even reach them that night.

I’m on the Knox/Sevier/Jefferson County lines.

It seems to have passed over us now. I’m surprised to still have power. I’m grateful that the predicted bad stuff missed you guys too. Thank God.

Yea up your way White Pine used to get quite a few of them. I watched one forming up above me right over my house once. No mistaking it either.

WBIR still showing Murfreesboro man what a mess.

I worked on East Emory Rd. for some years and that area for some reason was a magnet for tornado's.

It's the long wide valley between Black Oak Ridge and Copper Ridge that makes it tornado friendly. Copper Ridge itself seems to produce storms in the Halls area. I've gone up it both on the Interstate and Freeway and it would be pouring down rain till I got across it. Going north after Copper Ridge the ridges are closer together and higher with the exception of areas like Big Valley in Andersonville that runs up through Sharps Chapel. That was the area that produced the bad 1970’s tornado I was talking about and Loyston Sea on Norris Lake seems to feed it also.

I used to drive to work down 75 to Emory Road, and that stretch between the Merchants Rd. exit to the Callahan Rd. exit, had the strangest weather. It could be nothing but sunshine before Merchants Rd. and BAM!; it would be pouring down in buckets and then stop at Callahan. Or, a blizzard would start at Merchants and you couldn't see two feet in front of you, and when you'd pass the Callahan exit, it would be clear again. It happened too many times to be a coincidence, I always figured it was some kind of geographical phenomenon.

LOL There's a ridge line there causing it. Black Oak runs out there I think but I might be wrong. I have weird things happen where I live. I live about half way up Chestnut Ridge. My parents live at the foot of it both of us on the north slope. It can be snowing at my house about 80-100 ft in elevation above them and raining at theirs. We live about a half mile apart. I also learned it can be raining on one side of Chestnut Ridge or Copper Ridge and snowing on the the other. Quarry hill on Norris Freeway is a real bad place for that.

There's other places too like just north of Lake City along Pilot Mountain. They get real heavy rain. Wytheville, Virginia sticks out in my mind also. I used to drive through there in the late 70's going to and from the ship on weekends etc. In the winter it was always snowing there. About 5 years later I was driving an 18 wheeler a lot up I-81 same thing Wytheville in the winter meant snow especially at night.
