Oh, Angie. Please do what you can to be safe.

We're supposed to get severe storms tomorrow. Probably the spawn of your weather.

God's speed and great care sent your way.

Thanks. It's not raining yet but the wind has sure picked up! If it was light outside, I'd be sitting on the back step watching and waiting!

Awesome, got to love a good storm (as long as no one gets hurt).


Severe threat tomorrow is NE Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and So. Missouri.

Do you see where Dubuque is on the weather map. Well, that is where I am. So far it is a lot of thunder and lighting and a little rain. They are talking about some large hail, too.

It's all good. We just have a few new items of garbage in our yard!

Sorry guys...I'm one who has to watch the weather. As a kid I was the opposite and would be in the basement at a tornado watch!

We live in the sticks and have satellite internet and tv.....
we can see on radar a storm is coming... until about 5 min before it gets here, then we have no clue whats here cuz the signal gets cut off by it. Drives me nuts!
Gotta get a weather radio.

SuzieQ, I have a weather radio for hurricane season here in Florida. They say it will not work after the system change to "all digital". So if you are shopping, remember to ask about that.
Glad to hear you're all ok.

No damage here last night, just a lot more rain. Wish we could save some of this rain for July and August.
