Yeah, I use my Fb to keep up with fam and friends! I like it fine, just when you mention it on ATS, people feel like they have to razz you for it! Just my 'pre-emptive' strike!


We do not have any chance of rain for the next 10 days, supposedly. But we have pop-up showers often, so I will keep my eye on the radar! I check the radar several times a day and hopefully will catch any other anomaly!

...maybe it was a down-draft or straight line wind... i know some folks up in the east texas piney woods who had about 80 huge pine trees on their place... straight line wind came and, in one big blast, all their trees snapped... looked like they'd been bombed... no one was hurt except for messin up their drawers... btw, thats a really good lookin dog in that last pic...

I thought about straight line winds, but the swirling whirling dervishes of leaves and debris out my door made my adrenal gland scream "TORNADO"!!! My drawers came thru fine, but my right big toe looks like a concord grape! I kicked the couch as I ran by it to get in the hallway......


And that is Ms. Tiger Lily! She was all excited by the storm and the clean up. The chainsaw really got her going! She was running around snatching up trash and debris that had scattered during the storm and bringing it to me!

I am glad you all are okay. I believe I may know what you mean about these sudden without much warning
outbursts of weather phenomena. I think we all should take note and not take a dark looking patch of sky
for granted. Outside today I heard the crack of lightning then the boom..it was soon over as the "real"
weather was way north of us but few days ago we lost power for a few hours when lightning struck a tree
which fell onto a power pole. The thunder booms were so loud it sounded like a bomb dropped..made
me jump. I'm in NW Florida. Not sure if I recall seeing a rectangular or x marks the spot storm cell.

according to her weather map, i live about 30 minutes northeast from the op of this thread. the storm tore limbs out of my oak trees about 11 inches in diameter, and blew over a section of privacy fence. we had a spot of rough weather there. glad no one was hurt.

What your dad described sounds like a microburst. Knocks a plane out of the sky once in awhile when all the air in one spot all rushes down to the ground. Interesting to have seen one like that.

We think she is a German Shepherd mix, just unsure what the 'mix' part is!
She is spoiled rotten and loves water unlike any other dog I have ever owned!

It certainly seemed as though we were a 'target' today! Of whose or what, I can't imagine!


But that's just my conspiracy side getting carried away, probably....

Cool screen shot, and that is an Odd shape. I am glad that everyone is alright, and hopefully the repairs will not be too costly. Stay safe.

We have got the repairs handled, thankfully! Our roof and house held up amazingly well, considering the size of that tree.

I would like to know about that storm cell, tho. Anyone with any weather knowledge got an idea about why this was shaped like that?

Microburst?

they are best detected by lidar and doppler radar maybe it was something like this you were seeing

Well, according to NOAA, here is a typical microburst signature:



Taken from NOAA.gov

So I am not sure that this was a microburst.

from the looks of the last picture, it looks like the inner part of the tree is rotten. if so, the tree was due to fall! I remember one day when I was living in Vegas sitting at work and all of the sudden I heard a huge thud. The building and floor shook. I went outside and saw the old mullberry tree had split in half. the tree was over 40 yrs old and had rotted 2/3 of the way thru the trunk. There were no storms or wind.

Glad your ok...may need to clear other trees around the house incase its spread to the other trees.
