Default No hail damage for me!

I am a certifiable weather nut (I should have gotten a degree in meteorology instead of history/religion). Due to the severe weather heading my way, I parked the new Ranger in the parking deck at our local hospital. Mother Nature, you are not getting my ranger today!! OTOH, now I will be worried all day long about getting a door ding. LOL!

I have been watching the weather as my truck sits outside also. The same storm is headed our way.

For out area:
South to southeast winds will increase to 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 60 mph across the mountains and adjacent foothills. Some locally higher gusts up to 70 mph are possible.

The rain is ok but I hope we don’t get the hail and high winds!

Stay safe and good luck!

We are lucky here in north Alabama. The dew points are just too low for much severe weather, but to the south of me, DAMN. Just a few minutes ago, there were 21 tornado warnings in Alabama and Mississippi. Mississippi and south/central Alabama are getting hammered!!

A year and a half ago, my wife's beloved Scion xB (2004 model, 40K miles, not a scratch on it, and paid for) was crushed by a falling tree during a severe storm.

Fantastic live severe weather coverage from James Spann at ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, Alabama.

Sorry to hear about about the tornado destruction in the Carolinas. Some of the damage I saw on the internet was unbelievable.

Some high winds reported for today and rain, but that is about it. Overnight we are supposed to get high winds and rain again. The sportscaster just said, "Don't wear a hat to the baseball game tomorrow".

We just that line of storms through here lots of warnings and a few touchdowns but lucky for me no hail. I rode the storm out in Corapeake, NC. But where my house is in Chesapeake, Va we had some hail and a few strong cells but I avoided it. Thank God.

We got lucky as the storm cells moved futher north bringing weaker cells into our area. Only minor damage was seen around here but no hail. Lots of rain though.

A friend who lives 3 miles from me rescued his neighbor when a tree comes crashing down on her house. He went in a back window to get the woman out. They had him on the news last night.
