    Like every thing else this year, the unusual weather has brought no snow and record high temps.
    Today we are under tornado watches all day.
    Some part of Kentucky have already had a few tornadoes in the west.
    Missouri and Kansas were hard hit last night
    Is anyone else under the gun today?

      We didn't have a tornado last night, but we did have a thunderstorm, complete with thunder and lightning, which is pretty strange for this time of year.

      Admittedly I'm younger than a lot of the forum regulars at 30, but this has been the weirdest winter of my life. We've only had a few weeks of normal winter weather and the rest of the time it's been in the 40s, 50s, 60s, even 70s. It's as if Nebraska picked itself up and moved to Texas for the winter. I just hope it moves back to where it should be before summer!

    The torrential rains and cloud to ground lightening bolts were scarey!yikes

      I was born in here in Colorado, but I have lived in California since I was 6. I am now in Durango and my sister says that the winter heae is nothing like what they normally have. Not very much snow. Greg

    Well it's another nail biter of a day. I'm in the highest risk area for tornadoes today.
    We're getting the safety areas ready for possible tornado between 4annd 9 pm.The last one hit 5 miles north of me.
    I hope everyone else in this high risk area makes it out safe tonight.

    I was just checking the weather for the weekend and noticed weather.com has an alert for a tornado on the ground right now in Nashville. Stay safe, TN hubbers!

        Robins stuck around here, too. It's really weird waking up to them in the middle of January!

    We're under a tornado watch until late tonight.  The radio just said four were killed by a twister today in the southern part of the state.  I think the entire Midwest is seeing this threat today.  -- The ones that struck in the South caused incredible damage.

    Wind's picking up pretty much now.  I may need to sign off soon.  Stay safe, everyone!

    Hubbers in the tornado zone - Is everyone okay?  Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Georgia - where else?  Please check in, if you can.

    We're okay here.  (South-central Indiana)

        My word!  I'm glad it didn't stop either!

        Tornadoes are such strange "creatures."  One time I was listening to the radio, while it was tracking the progress of one.  According to the reports, the tornado was moving along the path of a street only about 0.25 mile from my house. But it wasn't on the ground, and we could not see or hear anything at all.  No wind, no precipitation, no clouds, Nada!

        And then there was another time when the TV showed pictures of a house that had been hit by one.  The dining room wall was destroyed; the table and chairs were broken; but the china closet immediately next to the table was intact, with unbroken china inside!  How on earth could such a thing happen???

        I'm really glad you're okay, and I hope those around you are too.
