  1. I assume this is anticipated bad weather?

    1. Hard rain and some thunderstorms but no high winds like they expected.

  2. Not much happened down my way today, thank goodness! School was closed Monday though due to that strong line of storms coming in from LA where it was really bad. We fared well. No problems.

    1. We had thundershowers and lots of rain this morning, but nothing but scattered showers since!

  3. Wow.
    I can remember reading an English book in which outdoor festivities were being arranged.
    One of the characters asked 'What happens if it rains?'. The response was 'We get wet'.
    Mind you, after Cyclone Debbie hit, quite a number of things are still closed on this side of the world. And some may not re-open for months.

    1. We have tornados and had one several years ago that killed hundreds of people, so I really don't scoff at bad weather. I understand closing the schools because it was supposed to be worse than it was right when school would be starting, but just about everything closed.

  4. Sounds like a good reason to stay home!

  5. Very loud thunder awoke me about 6 am, hung around with lightning and rain for about 20 minutes and nothing has happened since except for my hair blowing around late this afternoon. I am just north of Anne and way north of Lorraine.

  6. My nephew goes to school in Georgia and he said the college was in lock down and no classes, and he enjoyed a beautiful day.

    1. We had about 6 inches of rain during the early morning, then nothing until our flight was supposed to take off, then major thunderstorm and hail, then cancelled flight. (bummer)

  7. That weather certainly doesn't look very threatening, but like you say, it can turn on a dime and people can and do get hurt/killed. Better to be safe than sorry I guess. Anna

    1. Yes it can, Things here change quickly so sometimes the powers that be react too quickly.

  8. Is it because of the tornadoes I've been hearing about? Obviously not in your area!

    1. They were worried about severe tornados, but only a couple of small ones were around.

  9. Even a smallish storm can pretty quickly cause big problems but I find it hard to i magine closing an entire state!
    I hope you continue to escape drama

    1. The storms passed with minor damage, but it did knock Atlanta's airport out for 2 days and kinda screwed up our travel plans

  10. Wow. Stay safe. Never dealt with tornado territory myself, but I grew up with Hurricanes and those are definitely fun to deal with.

  11. To be honest the topography of the land pretty much keeps them away from my house.
