Re: Tornadic Conditions

I'm glad that the Midwest contingent seems to be all intact. The news reports didn't look good.

I'm glad you were able to persuade your parents to stay. Last Easter we had a bad one and it was just by a ruse that I was able to keep Dad from driving off into it. (at 92, he's sure that he knows best!). That one had hail that was an inch and a half long, and the hailstones were mostly in the shape of a cross or an egg. I'd never seen that before.

We had some hail yesterday, only pea-sized though. Thunder and lightning weren't too awful, but we had a lot of phases of the storm as waves of it went through. More thunder this AM and we're under a tornado watch, but I think the air is now dry enough that it's unlikely. The wind is howling, slamming doors shut, but the clouds are thinning, too.

Cathy C., looks like you and most of Illinois are in the middle of some
terrible weather right now. Take care. We are under a tornado watch until
midnight. I do not like scaru storms.
It was a big one -- probably the worst I've seen in the past ten years!
My parents were visiting and were just about to leave when the tornado
sirens went off; they wouldn't believe a big storm was coming and still
wanted to drive!
