Scary Storms Today

For those interested and/or concerned, even though there has been really destructive weather in my area today, I am fine and my house and property have not been damaged. Others in nearby towns have not been so lucky. Still not sure if it was a tornado that touched down but there is at least 1 fatality and several people injured after a house collapsed. I still haven't heard from Eric and he lives in one of the areas affected but he could be at work. Hopefully he will call when he goes on his supper break. Power and phone lines are down and roads are covered with fallen trees and limbs. It is raining again and we are under a severe thunderstorm watch and flood warnings until later this evening. Didn't want anyone to worry.
Hugs

I heard the news report and was wondering... Glad you are ok. I'm sure Eric is fine but it is always a worry until you hear from them. Hope the next round isn't too bad. Hunker down!

I had heard that there were "some storms" up your way but didn't realize they were that serious. I'll get the boat out and put a couple extra life jackets in it for you and George. Hmm.. I'll need to pick up a doggy one for Hunter.

*Hugs* hope you and yours are all ok.

I saw some video of the storm damage on the national news this morning. I'm glad you're okay. I hope Eric is, too. *hugs*

Musta been what we had on Wednesday night. While out yesterday we saw lots of the smaller trees either down, or partially down. Lotsa branches everywhere. Seeing it on the weather site was freaky (just before shutting the puter down for the night) as DC got it from 2 different directions....one storm came in fast from the SW-ish and the other came in from the SE-ish.

Thanks all. Yes I did hear from Eric and they had no issues. He was at work when everything hit and aside from a little flooding in the warehouse, all was fine. Jessie also made it through unscaythed. Sara didn't have a clue anything even happened here wayyyyyyyyyy up North in New Hampshire, until I told her on Sunday. I guess Massachusetts is also a world away, Karla.
