Is everyone OK?

Been watching TWC and weather online, and supposedly there are severe thunderstorms with hail ...

Stay Safe ...

No severe weather today. Had storms the last two nights, and as usual the damages are hit and miss throughout the area. Many homes to the east of our house had power loss last night, but it didn't affect our side of the street. Some are still out today too.

In my errands today I saw a portable sign blown on it's side and a few limbs down, but that was it. Nothing major at all on my trek.

Same as Hypocore here. Some beautiful lightning shows and a few grass fires in the area. We had a few quarter sized hail the other night, but mostly a LOT of wind and some much needed (although not enough) rain!!

No hail in Grapevine, but a LOT of rain! 3 inches on Monday night, and another 1/2" last night. We need it!

Default storms

I saw as a selling feature one home had listed a 17 person storm shelter....I guess you could be the popular guy in the neighborhood when the storm sirens go off. Are they common? Does anyone know what they charge for a smaller, family sized, in ground shelter? It might be worth making a hole in the backyard for one....In Ga. we all hide in our basements when mother nature raises hell... I hear out there you go to an interior bathroom, which i guess would work well untill the roof comes off.
Do y'all get a lot of tornados or is that more to your north in the plains states? We get enough here that when it starts hailing, we stay near the TV to be alerted if a tornado is spotted. (stupid weather guys talk for hours)

Two nights ago the hail broke two of our windows (outer panes) on our new house. Several plants were damaged and the pool was a mess. My brothers house had no damage.
