Yep .. first line is headed this way. It's in YORK PA right now ....

We are hunkering down. Bringing in all the stuff that can blow away.
We've been through a bunch of tornados before .. living in Alabama.
So we know how to prepare for an out break. Wish the neighbors would do the preps ... ugh.

Got the basement ready ... but of course we usually have it ready anyways.
Water .... lanterns .... weather radio .... the usual ....

Ohio reporting in (Millersport) - lost power for a few hours in the night but everything is back to normal in my neck of the woods.


Stay safe everyone!

1st wave went over. VERY electrical. No hail. Some rotation.
'They' are saying the day will heat up and we'll have another wave around 5 pm.
I'm just not seeing that it'll happen ....

Update from NW Ohio:

It was not nearly as bad as they predicted for the area we were in.

We went to the in law's (we don't have sirens or a shelter where we reside) and the sirens were blaring for a good hour, but, it never got THAT bad, certainly nothing like one last year that they were comparing it to.

We were watching the news and we were smack in the middle of the reddest part and had no extreme wind or hail like they were reporting for our area. The kids slept right through the whole thing on the pull out in Memaw's living room (right near the stairs where we would have gone if it were necessary).

The only damage at home was to our old chicken coop, everything else was untouched.

I hope everyone else weathered the storm safely!

It was bad wasn't it?

You know you've hit the big time in a storm system when Homeland Security sets up a staging area in your tiny little community to bring water and ice.

So depressing to even think about it.

And when it rains it pours - our sump pump just went out.Lol

It was bad, but, there was an upside. There almost always is.... We were really unprepared for the one last year and that storm woke us up big time.

We are ready for anything now


Being prepared made it a lot less scary!

it appears to have put a Buoy into event mode? Causing some wave action?
