I have heard that there were two tornado's that have touched down, but I didn't hear where. I am thankful that there are no leaves on the trees right now because even without, my poplars are half bowed over and the wind is just howling out there tonight.

Best get the chainsaw ready, going to be a busy day tomorrow.

Yes it's pretty breezy around here. I lost a big old pine tree last spring with high winds and nearly hit the house. I don't want firewood from my trees....

All is fairly calm in NETN at the mo', but evidently we have a tstorm warning, so we might get some winds in a bit, too!

I have lost power several times briefly but that is nothing new here. I do believe I have lost a few limbs and maybe a tree or two as I have heard that familiar "snapping" a few times. Crazy warm though.

Dropped 13° in an hour and half. Hate that snapping sound, waiting for the thud on the roof afterwards.

They were saying on the late news tonight that the Plateau was seeing some mighty strong winds tonight, primarily in Fentress and Cumberland counties. You guys be careful up there!

Very weird winds. Mostly subsided here, I think. I heard some stuff flying into and hitting the house. I'm on duty until middle-of-the-night and on a night like tonight, that's not a bad thing. (I work at home.)

OK, break over. Back to it!

Wow! We're getting some strong winds up here now! I have to go to work in about thirty minutes (yes, I work in the middle of the night... it's awful), and I sooo don't want to drive in this! Oh well, at least I no longer have a Wrangler - that thing was awful in winds.

Power must have went out here, too. Fortunately, I'm neurotic and woke up on time, anyway!

My first car was a used '67 Camaro with a slightly souped-up 327 motor. I used to try driving that thing in the snow. It was rear-wheel drive with something like a 65/35% weight distribution. I spend a lot of time going sideways. It's amazing that any 16-year old lives to be 17 years old.

It was windy here in Nashville last night too. My front storm door was whistling; it has to be pretty windy for that to happen.
