    Wow, we are getting hit again. You could tell all day that the storms were coming. It was 70 degrees at 6 am this morning and the air stuffy all day.
    The first line of storms are producing tornadoes already. The second round to come later is starting to produce tornadoes warnings. There have been reports of fatalities already and many injuries.
    Now another tornado warning just south of here. Going to be a bumpy night. May be on and off due to lightning.

    Donotfear...hope you are watching the weather also...it will be your way soon.

      Michael: I just signed on. Man it's muggy as heck!  All day long, dude! Right now I think it's just north of us. I didn't see a warning for Miller county yet. They were for Texas: Bowie, Red River. Keep me posted.

      BTW: I'm heading your direction on Wednesday. Going to the Ozarks to see Art 4 Life for a cattle drive.

        That sounds like a fun trip planned.

        It is still muggy here even after the first wave. Second wave is only a couple of hours away at the most.
        Now they are saying we are under severe threat for tornadoes until morning. A short break and start up again tomorrow afternoon.

      Thank you. It is really bad outside tonight. One tornado just went east of here, but there is another line west of  here moving through that is also producing tornadoes.

    Where did you say you lived? South of Little Rock? Benton?

      I am just outside Malvern. Between Benton and Arkadelphia and SE of Hot Springs.

        OOOOhhhh. Then you are familiar with Acme Brick in Malvern!!  Perla East and West gate?  I worked for Acme Brick in Texarkana for 9 years. Did you know that Malvern is the brick capitol of the country? The largest brick plant/supplier in USA.  Just a bit of trivia.

        The worst of the storms are DEFINITELY just north of me, thank goodnes. Keep us posted.

          Yes I do. Brickfest is a huge event yearly here.  And coming up soon. The Brick companies are what keep this place alive. And I am only 20-25 minutes from Hot Springs. I love Hot Springs. Most of my work is in Hot Springs.

          You have been lucky from the storms so far, but they will eventually hit your area. Hopefully it is late enough for the system to weaken.

    Going to go off line for a while at least. Lightning is getting worse.
