A monster black cloudmass ran over us in Austin on its way to you this noon. It was hauling ass. Black clouds don’t typically haul ass.

Git underground. GO!

Yeah...They are exploding.

This early in the season you have to wonder how many residents in the area are paying attention?

I'm over here in central AL, and have the local NWS page up and the weather radio on standby...........national Intellicast loop is looking hideous.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Yeah sorry....I don’t know the code to reduce it.

But PDS is a well known acronym in the area and carries a lot of weight as far as knowing the seriousness of the matter.

For two years it’s frightful to watch tornadic storms build over Texas and wreak havoc over the more Eastern states. It’s usually Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas get the storms at 4pm so everybody west has warning but now we can only warn y’all since we don’t get them anymore, y’all do, and AT NIGHT.

Prayers and get those weather radios.

I'm not trying to make light of it, but we have a really good warning system here and it's early enough that the word will get out via TV, radio, weather radio, word of mouth and neighbors helping neighbors...should be fine...material damages suck but lives are the important thing here..

I'm glued to the coverage, and I see potential but no hook echo anywhere.

We err on the side of caution for early warnings in AR.

Crap. I hate being by myself when this happens. They just increased the torcon for Memphis to 8. Looks like I’ll be sitting up reading on the couch all night. They’ve got Mike Seidel reporting now a few blocks away from me. Stay alert and safe... everyone in its path tonight.

Late night/early morning is the WORST time!

We purchased an excellent weather radio (hat tip to Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit) on sale a year or so ago. It only alerts us to what is in our area...instead of half the world around us. Lol...

Pay attention all the way up into Indiana and Illinois. The tornado threat is limited up this way, but there will be some phenomenal winds. With the saturated ground and the snow melt on top of that, we could see a lot of trees tumble in the area tonight. Plus, after a overnight high around 50 in Indy (higher south, lower north), the temps will go down to low 20s tomorrow night, freezing any standing water.

Still, it’s better than 3” of sleet.

I know how you feel. A couple years ago we moved to a more tornado-riddled area of IL and when we purchased the house I didn’t even think about that issue. I know, pretty dumb. Anyways, in these two years there have been so many siren warnings and one happened to get me out of bed and being alone in the house, with nowhere to go but the bathtub or closet and I was frantic.

Based on the weather pics should be fine. just a little longer and it'll be through that area,

You poor thing...you really ARE like at the mercy of it all. It’s a sinking feeling. My house is all larger windows and many sets of french doors/transoms—upper and lower. And all rooms are exterior except for one...a small closet on the first floor...that’s only about three feet in from the exterior. Nowhere to run! I’ve thought that I’d just jump in there and put on layers of coats and hats and my ski mask and goggles and gloves...and burrow in all the crap on the floor. It won’t be a pretty thing. So now you know what to tell the rescuers what kind of creature to look for if they need to go through the rubble. LOL.

I think we’re on the edge of it tonight. We’re in Rocket City USA (Huntsville AL). It was really stormy yesterday a.m. about 5:30 . . . same stuff that was heading to SC. We were under a tornado watch then and didn’t know it. Sounded pretty rough out there. We need one of those improved weather radios that doesn’t sound for everything within 300 miles of here.
