We're under a tornado warning right now.  It's been like this all spring horrible thunder storms and tornados happening in the mountains of all places.  Normally we get 1 every 20 years in our area this year the count is 2.  What's fueling all this weather?  Am i gonna have to dig out a root celler?  Man alive i know some of you have had it worse but this is really bad here.

Being in tornado alley I can tell you it has moved. We use to have warnings and watches every day in the spring time. Now for the past several years there is hardly ever one in the spring time. It has definitely gone somewhere.

Gee. I kind of miss it  Cry

We got hammered pretty good here in Knoxville last night. Yard almost white with hail some the size of golf balls, in places 3 to 4 inches deep. Right after it quit I went outside and it almost smelled like a pine tree was on fire, it was just where it had beat the leaves off of the trees and you could smell them. We got it pretty good but others were not as lucky.

Hankdog I have had the same thoughts for several years now about tornado alley has moved east.

they say the last time it was this bad was in the 70's.  i was in KY then and remember plenty of them, although i don't remember any that were so deadly...at least in my area.

We've had, during this last week, a funnel cloud (didn't touch ground), snow, hail, high winds (blew my new portable garage away), minor flooding, and the creek in my back yard that usually is dried up by May 1 is still running hard.  This winter I've seen more water in that creek than I've ever seen in the 40+ years the family as owned this place.

News report indicated that for the last 3 days of April 312 tornados touched down in the Wind wringer belt an all time record surpassing the 240 some of the previous record.   Still squabling over the number of F5's but 2-6  in one day is the latest guestamate.

Schawee and I down at Bud's this past weekend saw a good bit of devastation in the little town of Geiger, just down the road from Bud's. Trailers and trees tore up all over, roofs taken off churches and businesses.

They getting it cleaned up pretty quickly but looks like lots of people went homeless, some perhaps permanently.

Hate to see that!

Hear ya man Glade Spring over here got hit pretty good.  Alot of damage still have that exit on the interstate closed.  Just hope people remember what these folks all over the south are going through so they get the help and support to put their lives back together best they can.

i have been on the call list waiting to go.  they drew everyone from back east first.  got one call and missed it because i was outside worshiping the rare appearance of that bright light in the sky  sad

even though the news has been obsessed with the killing of UBL, you have not been forgotten.... Wink

Did some video taping over the weekend of what happened over in Glade Spring VA sure alot of damage and they have been cleaning up for a while now.  So a youtube search of it will give you videos of what it looked like after it happened.  They are just relying on charity at this point because FEMA denied the request for assistance.
