We’re in a western suburb of Chicago. We had a few very tense minutes where the sky turned black and there were strong gusts. Our TV went out, and we’ve got lots of street flooding. At Mass there were only eight other people. Smallest crowd ever! All schools (and several stores) are closed too. More rain is on the way...

My wife is on a plane headed for (I hate to say it) chicago. It has been delayed twice, but is now headed into it.

As my flight instructor said, “Happy Landings!”

There’s a bit of eyebrow-raising and head-scratching from a few people on weather boards at the PDS watch.

Yeah, they had a moderate risk of severe weather yesterday for Oklahoma and that never really materialized. Nothing currently on radar in the area that looks that bad.

Tornado touched down in MO last night, in Monroe County, a bit southeast of where I live.

Thank you, dear. We're in northeast Ohio, so the tornadoes should be a state away to the west.

It's bright and sunny here with puffy white clouds, and it's 82° with a south wind at 8-15 MPH.

The barometer was dropping, but is now leveling off again.

And we live in The Fortress, our brick home that survived the last tornado that passed through here.

Yep, they sure wiffed on that PDS watch. Had some wind reports along the western edge and then nothing the rest of the day.

The entire moderate risk of severe weather yesterday from the Gulf Coast to Michigan largely didn't pan out.
