Looks like Dexter got hit badly from the damage Fox News showed. There was a tornado warning about 7:45 or so tonight. I hope all of our Michiganders are ok!

I’m about 20 miles west. It was just building here and we only got rain and some thunder and lightning. Still looks pretty nasty off to the south.

I wondered where you were and if you were ok! Glad you are ok! Looked like Monroe got some big hail and almost got a tornado about 7:45. They said Carleton and Flat Rock were in the warning area. I have a brother in Highland and he said they are ok.

Wow! You were CLOSE!!! I have a friend in Battle Creek and I believe he goes to that university Shep was saying was preparing for the storm. I have been praying for all of you ever since I heard Shep talking about these storms. Will continue to do so.

It really wasn’t bad here at all. We got some heavy bursts of rain and lots of thunder and lightning but no wind to speak of. I was in and out taking pictures of the clouds between the rain falls.

If it was that close to Ann Arbor, why couldn't it have leveled The Big House, instead?

I'm kidding, of course. Sort of. :)

Good thing most of us have basements in Michigan. I don't but I'm only about 3 feet above the water line.

Mother nature sure is amazing. But the Darwin award winners are a bunch of re-tards. Those are their neighbors they are hooting about. Sad..

An Ohioan called tonight and said they have a photographer relative out taking photos who saw a funnel from a Luna Pier location. They were on their way to Ida, MI to check out the area. Decades ago I lived near Monroe, MI.

Our friends daughter and her kids were IN the tornado. They were in a storm shelter at their day care center, and are OK. They were unable to go back and check on their house, though due to downed trees.

Our house is three miles from the tornado path, and the storm went over it. We're away for the winter, though, so every one is fine. Every thing looks OK at the house, too, through a video camera we have there. Hope all of you in the area are OK, too.

Hmm.... Was just going through some old OKC bombing files. Wonder if James & Terry Nichols’ farm got whacked...

I thought that was farther north, in Tuscola County. Just as you enter the thumb.

It was described as being in “Decker, MI”...

I’m about five miles due east of there near US-23. That was a little too close to comfort. I got some hail and rain, but missed the tornado.

Yeah, that's right. Decker is at the base of where a thumbnail should be. One of my sisters used to farm out there--a lot of helicopter traffic after OKC, coming and going from the Nichols compound.

Last night's storms were about 40 miles south of that area.

Thanks. I got “Dexter” and “Decker” confused. Never heard of “Dexter” before...
