RE: Tornadoes - is everyone OK?

We were just outside of the path that created all that disaster. Very high winds and lots of lightening. Knocked a few plants off a table that I forget to sit on the ground.

There were tornadoes from Oklahoma city, OK thru east of Chicago yesterday thru early this morning.

Lots of rain, but haven't checked the rain gauge.

Hope everyone else is ok, I know my family members in OK are.

RE: Tornadoes - is everyone OK?

We didn't get as much rain as I expected, only .2, just seemed like alot inside the house with all the wind.

Indiana had some minor damage, only power outrages from what I've heard this morning. But there was a line from the OK area up thru IL, into MI that headed east. We are still under a threat of severe weather from OK/AR thru MI today. Tomorrow it heads east for OH and east.

Tom and Brooke, I seen last night that there were tornadoes in your neck of the woods. Hopefully not anywhere like OKC.

RE: Tornadoes - is everyone OK?

Other than wet all OK here. Apparently they had some wind damage just north of me (trees and powerlines) as Dad called at 05:30 this AM to ask if I was OK (other than grouchy from being roused at that un-Godly hour). Have not heard from Brooke but the radar looks like his side of I-70 is getting the bulk of the rain tonight. The gauge here had just a touch under 1.5" last night so no field work for a couple days. Starting to look like a pattern.


RE: Tornadoes - is everyone OK?

We're not getting the rain that you'all have had. Very dry, thank goodness for all the moisture this winter.

Glad you're OK, hope Brooke is also.

RE: Tornadoes - is everyone OK?

We lucked out overall, and I'm extremely thankful. We did lose a huge Bradford pear in our yard that I've been sawing up and hauling off the last 3 days, but we really didn't get the rain we could have. We had .9 here and a little less than that at the farm. I will try to get back in the field this afternoon.
