Nope.

The storms through AL and GA from yesterday were horrible, my thoughts and prayers are with them.
More storms today across the east coast today.

There were 32 deaths in Mississippi, 15 in Tennessee, and 8 in Virginia (so far)...Will you remember those families as well???

Tornadoes went past north and south within 10 miles of me, but no reported major damage or any injuries. It's been an interesting, and very sad spring thunderstorm season so far!

Hunkered down in Arkansas!

We're fine, but many of our friends and community neighbors are not. We've been plagued with severe storms, heavy rains (resulting in horrid flooding) and tornadoes. Authorities began evacuating folks from severely flooded areas day before yesterday. There's concern that the dams and levies won't hold. Several more tornadoes struck Monday night here. Now the word is that the damage from the recent storms will total more $$-wise than the big ice storm of January 2009.

Glenn and I have been lucky, the most damage we've sustained are some broken trees and big limbs down. So far, so good......

So far just tornado watches & warnings here, I haven't heard of any touching down near us. Pretty bad thunder storm with strong winds last night, but I didn't see evidence of any damage when I drove through town today.

We had a tornado watch for several hours in the early morning, but thankfully no tornadoes near us. A lot of lightning and wind though (along with a little rain and thunder). One of our trees was whipping around harder than I have ever seen it do, but no damages here.

Does anyone know Mollyanne's real name and age?

It got up to 19C (66F) here, with winds gusting up to 90 km/hr (55 miles/hr). I didn't have time to enjoy it. :(

Our thoughts & prayers are with everyone suffering with any type of devastation. This is a great thread.
