Storms woke me up in the early morning but it wasn't severe. After our Christmas wedge F4 tornado I am very relieved not to be included in this watch!

Stay on your toes, guys. Don't brush off these watches and warnings. What happened to us can happen to you, too!

Oh gosh, why am I so lucky. I'm right in it ! I've already been through a tornado, five trees pulled up by the roots and one on the house. I have to laugh, it's not funny, but we're blessed with this stuff. One just hit last week around me. Now Governor Bryant chimes in, not good. Mississippi - Good Times.

You all please be careful. It's no joke.

It's getting darker and lightly drizzling as of now. I pray it skips us though.

Just be careful. We in Texas deal with tornadoes a lot, too, but the Christmas one caught us off guard. We had 1 F4 and 2 F3 tornadoes that evening. There were so many reports of tornadoes the weatherman got frustrated and thought they were false. Turns out we had around 13 tornadoes in the Dallas area so all those reports were true.

I live in southern GA we are to be getting the storm midnight, is going to be a long night, but if things are the way they have been in the past, so far is not been that bad at all, yes some damaging winds here and there and let no forget the flooding back after Christmas, but tornadoes had not been a main cause of damage.

Let hope that things do not escalate, I will let all you know how things develop if we wake up due to sirens going on.

I will prepare my hideaway under the stairs as usual.


Wish me luck
