    Glad to know that you are safe. I thought about you last evening as I watched the path of the storm and mentioned you on the Bianca Jones board where I was posting.

    We had pea-sized hail, heavy rain, and high winds for about 20 minutes before the storm passed. Fog and drizzle now. Be well.

    This warm winter we had plays a role in this early tornado season. La Nina Winters are warmer on average. Also, the Gulf of Mexico is very warm, which blows in warm moist air, which clashes with cold air from Canada.

    Beemer, so glad to know that you and yours are safe!! Prayers to all that received damage.

    My anxiety level gets so high with any kind of severe weather that I have to take the blue pill!

    Tornado May Have Been F3; Extensive Damage

    March 16, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    Tornado in Dexter may have been an F3
    By Tom Greenwood and Chad Livengood
    The Detroit News

    Dexter— Early and unofficial indications are that the twister that devastated portions of Dexter Thursday was an F3, which is classified as a "severe" storm with winds that register between 158-206 mph.

    "We will have teams going out to look at the damage and label the strength of the tornadoes," said meteorologist Debra Elliott of the National Weather Service at White Lake Township on Friday. "Right now, based on what we know and have seen on the news, it looks like the Dexter tornado was the strongest. A best guess is that it was an F3, which is a fairly strong tornado for this area and for this time of year"...

    I'm glad the forecasters are catching up to what I said back in January when the jet stream wasn't coming down. Here in Georgia we already had a deadly tornado hit Rome back in February, so that to me was a sign that things are not going to be good. Glad your o.k nursebeeme and pray for the ones who suffered loss to their property, but I heard on the news no one was hurt or killed which is a miracle for an F-2 and possible an F-3 in certain areas.

    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.

    I'm curious as to why you say that. Can you explain more? Because I think you're right, but maybe for different reasons.

    NBM, I am so thankful you're all right; and if this is a forecast as to what will come, I will be praying for everyone. We are expecting a "severe winter storm" here tonight and tomorrow, with black ice forecast...which is quite rare. The dogs will get a weekend in the house, and I'll stay put for the whole thing...but still, it is supposed to get pretty dicey here winter weather wise.

    I'd still take all that over a tornado...

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Tornado in Michigan damages more than 100 homes
    By MIKE HOUSEHOLDER, AP
    3 hours ago

    DEXTER, Mich. — Sometime after a tornado ripped through this rural Michigan village, a solitary hand rose from the rubble of a destroyed home.

    The first officer on the scene reached for the hand and pulled out an elderly man who was shaken but able to walk.

    "That's the best part," Deputy Ray Yee said. "Every place I went to, I would have thought I would have found somebody laying there — deceased or whatever. But, knock on wood, everybody was OK."

    The twister that hit Dexter on Thursday evening damaged more than 100 homes and destroyed 13. But no one was seriously hurt...

    I saw something on our local news last night that said temps could be above average for most of the country for the next 3 months. That won't help tornado season any. My local weather guys pointed out that if you have a day where storms were forecast but you get bright sunshine instead, watch out later in the day, as that can make the storms more severe when they do come. Not to sound like an alarmist, but I think it's Armageddononline.com that has a very thorough emergency preparation checklist. It helped me get our household ready for the year....even though I don't think the world is ending yet.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    If Michigan is going to be hard hit by tornadoes this year, we're in trouble. Our home in Davison has no basement and no place to go to be safe from such a storm. Usually tornadoes that are coming from Flint towards Lapeer, skip over our immediate area, although I have no idea why. One time we were at the dentist's office when a tornado hit. The power went out (some people were in the middle of getting fillings!). We were told to get under the desk and tables/benches or anything we could get under. Of course, silly me had to go outside and watch the tornado picking up cars and throwing them around and demolishing houses nearby. The tornado didn't hit the dentist's office but did hit all round it in a hit and miss fashion. Three houses down and one skipped, 2 more down and another skipped, etc. My kids were at home and I was scared to death when the radio news said the tornado was headed straight for where we live. I called the kids and they were OK. I told them to go in the bathroom and lay down in the tub or on the floor close to the tub, since we have no basement. Luckily, the tornado went right over our subdivision without touching down. There is a "tornado corridor" where many tornadoes that come here follow and, luckily, we don't live in it. There was a terrible tornado there back in the 1950's. I remember my parents driving us through there to see the terrible destruction. A lot of people were killed and injured in that tornado.

    There are actually people on Tornado alley who think they are in some kind of safe zone, because they have never seen a tornado. I live in a place similar to you the tornadoes always go either north or south of us. The wind can be perfectly still and then a few houses down it's blowing like crazy. We all have basements here, that is one of the reasons why I moved here. It still scares me because when I lived in South Fl. I got hit about 3 times by tornadoes, not to mention hurricane season. Well I hope you continue to stay safe.
