    Thank you, my Missouri friend! All the watches for my seem to have expired, other than a flood advisory, so all should be good the rest of the night.

    Last night, we had some light storms/rain come through. This morning, they were saying the likely severity of tonight's weather, to some degree, depended on whether or not we would stay cloud-covered during the day. We did, with only a brief bit of sunshine (maybe a half hour or so?) this afternoon. That kept the atmosphere from heating up more, which kept things a *bit* calmer tonight.

    The farmers around here are really taking a hit this spring, though. We had such a hot, dry summer last year, but this has been one of the coldest, wettest springs on record. It's been so wet that they can't get into the field to plant corn, or to harvest the first hay crop. We've gotten quite a bit of rain tonight, and while it's slowing down, it's still coming.

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    My garden went in late this spring due mostly to snow. For us it's like the last year's drought is getting it's due water with a vengeance. We are happy to have the water but good grief can't Mother Nature give it to us a little at a time instead of all at once?

    My opinion and nothing but my opinion.

    Tor:Con Index link below. Will show you the probability of a tornado happening in your area.
    http://www.weather.com/news/tornado-torcon-index

    FEMA's link for Emergency Supplies list below or what you need to survive for three days in case help is not immediately available to you.
    http://www.ready.gov/document/family-supply-list

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.

    Powerful storms leave trail of damage through southeastern Michigan

    Tom Greenwood /The Detroit News

    Detroit — A series of powerful storms that swept through southeastern Michigan Thursday afternoon left a trail of uprooted trees, flooded streets, downed power lines and more than 100,000 homes and businesses without power.

    After hard work through the night by DTE Energy crews, that number has been reduced to 68,000 as of Friday morning. There were no reports of deaths or injuries from the storms, which swept south from the Saginaw Valley beginning at about 2:30 p.m. Thursday...

    From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...#ixzz2XW5skG7L

    Not long after I posted yesterday, it got very dark, and I could hear rumbles of thunder in the distance. The lights flickered, TV screen went "poof" (I was listening to local news), so I shut down the computer, turned off lights, etc. I called DH and told him about the impending storm. He said that there was already pouring rain, thunder, and dangerous lightning and that he wouldn't leave the office until the storm subsided. He encountered flooded roads, downed trees, heavy traffic as folks tried to wend their way home. The storm hit our neck of the woods @5:00: It was skeery

    Be safe.

    Rain rain go away, come again some other day!

    Southern Ohio here. It has rained for days. Not really storming, mostly drizzling but some real downpours. I am so sick of rain and gray skies.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    We've had our spring the last two weeks, awesome weather for the fourth of July for a change. No monsoon downpour or 100 plus temps.

    Soon will be a different story with 90's and who the heck knows how hot it will get. Just hope it's not the 100 plus heat index temps we had last summer for weeks.

    I remember one year we had something like 6 weeks of a wet gray spring. People were literally getting sick and depressed.

    We can use more rain, so Mysterview we will take your rain if you can send it! And I'll try to send you sunshine and perfect temps.
