Right now sounds like my home is in middle of a Wind tunnel.
There something making a scratching sound on my bedroom wall and it unnerving but there is no tree on that side so it must be the holly bushes branches . Does anyone have a wind gust radar and is there a chance for micro bursts or such.

I will see what I can find. Our Emergency radio went off about 10 mins ago - but was for Spartanburg storm moving up this way.

Hang in there. Scary stuff.

Im mad at that site it said last night it was suppose to rain today at 11 then this morning one oclock so of course I did actual work stuff lol and I could have finished the deck

I feel safe due to positioning of the house and it might not be so bad it could be the howling of the gust going between the neigbhors and mine.

You say more headed this way? It needs to stop by bed time but I could always leave the pc on with something like live tv on. I hope no one needs to venture out there could be flying cows.

Im only picking about that site . It is a favorite of mine with the hourly checks.
