That's ridiculous Charlie, you'll have to move to Oklahoma to get away from the tornadoes, do you or others generally have basements in their homes?

Most homes like mine have basements.The back of my home is level with the yard but the front is 6ft under the ground level.The weather channel said minutes ago that the storm front is less than an hour from the Boston area.That's all that they are talking about right now on the Weather Channel. My camera is ready Bob.--charliezap

Capn - pretty crazy stuff for sure. I grew up in Southern Illinois, where tornado watches were so common they were ignored. I wonder whether with climate changes we're seeing a new New England, weather wise.

Back in the day in the hinterlands I inhabited, we relied on tall antennae to capture signals (sporadically) coming from TV stations in St. Louis. These things had some value beyond periodic TV reception; my father-in-law, among others, would climb his antenna with an 8-mm movie camera to film a passing tornado - again, crazy stuff.

It looks like this is becoming the norm lately Pat especially in these parts.We got about 1" of rain yesterday but no wind to speak of.One more day of storms to get through today.--charliezap

For sure- we got lucky this afternoon with only a small batch of rain but there was some storms all around us. I may have to actually mow the grass aka- clumps of green around the brown spots

Skip the picture taking and stay inside. Those rascals are nothing you want to die for.
