Severe Weather

Here in the midwest we get tons of bad weather in the spring. Right now it’s prime tornado season, and we’re currently having our first tornado warning of the year. For the uninitiated, a warning means that tornados HAVE been spotted. From the reports, tornadoes were spotted a few miles away from us, and the tornado sirens blaring for awhile would seem to mean that was actually the case.

I took a quick picture out my side garage door for the moblog, so you should see that to the right. My family and I have been down in the basement in my office for the past two and a half hours, and the warnings are now starting to end. They are now talking about flash floods all around us, but luckily that’s something we don’t need to worry about in our house.

Welcome spring! Looks like my buddy Mike is experiencing the same thing, and he’s about 45 minutes south of here… Pretty nasty…
