Did'nt get any tornado sirens here, but it sure was one heck of a T-Storm! Theresa and Jeff, ya'll loose power? We lost it here S.E. MI around 1930ish. Got it back this morning at 0645am. Glad we did too. Beginning to worry about the chicken I'm planning to do this afternoon. Hope everyone is ok!

I was lucky and didn't lose power last night ... however an F1 tornado touched down about 40 miles north of me


I was hit by one back in '79 at work ... an F4 ... thought I was going to meet my maker that night .... guess I'm just too ugly to die young ..

Like I had said earlier, a couple of downed trees from the straight line winds, and the power flickered on and off a few times. I know that they had a touch down a bit south of here near Kalamazoo/Battle Creek.

That same system is passing through Philly right now.Maybe not as bad as you guys had it but we got thunder and sometimes the rain bounces a foot high.

We must be a day behind you guys. We just finished the t-storms and 70 MPH winds. The western part of the state thinks they had a tornado. We don't usually get them here ... weird weather ...

So now that we've done a head count, and everyone's okay, did anyone get any good wood scores? Sorry if I may sound insensitive, but I'm the guy that will check his friends to make sure they're okay, then laugh at them if they are. But only after it's okay.
