I just discovered the first disadvantage to being an empty nester...how to get a 100 lb. arthritic dog down the basement steps by myself.

When those things come through a metro area, it’s chaos. I lived through one here in Nashville back in ‘98. The warnings should be taken very seriously.

Thanks. Metro looks in the clear now, but the hinterlands are still in for it.

Hopefully this doesn't go on all night; that's happened before.

Here in Groveport, just clouds. I was golfing at Thornapple until 3:30, and it was just starting to cloud up over there when I left.

Thanks Buccaneer. In all the years I lived in the Midwest, I never recall hearing about a tornado touchdown in Upper Arlington, nor close to O.S.U., nor anywhere near Columbus. It was always on the outskirts, or in some trailer park.

My only large city remeberance was Kansas City about five decades ago. Sorry if I’m forgetting another important event in someone’s area.

The basement is the place to be. Everyone in the midwest should have a comfortable one, for these eventualities.

I’ve never understood why each home isn’t required to have a storm celler of some sort back there. Out here in California the codes require earthquake safety measures. IMO, that has saved many lives.

Had one last year in New Albany that did quite a bit of damage, and one that actually skipped across I-270 in Hilliard about 15 years ago.

It sure is. During these situations a system should be set up to allow flexible work conditions so people could leave to be home safe during the most problematic hours.

An alternative would be to have a place available at work where folks could relax and spend a few hours holed up.

Some of these storms last quite a while though.

A few years ago, I had an appointment with a strict time commitment to meet in Indianapolis, Indiana. I was leaving Columbus, Ohio and there was a hail and rain storm with similar looking clouds all the way from Columbus, Ohio to Indianapolis, Indiana.

It was about 2:00 p.m. yet as dark as 9:00 p.m. I was torn between getting off the highway completely or continuing driving, hoping and praying for the clouds to clear. Fortunately and thank God my Dad taught me how to drive in bad weather conditions.

Despite arriving safely and on time, I think it still would have been the wiser choice to get off the road completely, especially when the wind kicked up several notches a few times.

DoughtyOne, I like the way you think! Those are great ideas. The only hitch I think is that many folks in the Midwest tend to feel the weather is "never that bad and even if it is, it'll probably happen to somebody else."

A professor in College ignored several hours of blizzard warnings saying "They always say that. A little snow is not a blizzard and nothing to fear." She refused to cancel Zoology Lab or even end it early.

After lab, I drove home not being able to see anything but a faint glow from the street lights above my car and horizontal heavy snowfall. I couldn't see any cars parked at the curb until I was inches from them. I tried to drive a straight line guesstimating the distance from the glow above to the curb.

Fortunately the only thing I hit was a huge snow bank right in the middle of my side of the road. My car got stuck there, a fair distance from my front door so I had to hike the rest of the way home. The city issued a curfew that night and I was housebound for 4 days.

“how to get a 100 lb. arthritic dog down the basement steps by myself.”

Take a large bath towel and put it under the dogs chest - side to side - then either straddle the dog or stand next to it holding the two ends of the towel.

Lift with your legs - not your back - and assist the dog in walking.

If you have a large wood carrier (canvas with built in handles) it works better.

Your Vet probably has meds that would make this a non-issue.

Please ping me when you post them. Clouds are fascinating. Speaking of which, it didn't seem like rain today because there was no thunder and no lightning. Did you get any of it? We did have very high in the sky gray clouds. ;-)
