I hope all is well with you Bruce!  It's been a rocky day today in the southeast!

Some more advice from experiencing one up close and personal... secure everything in your yard! You don't want a lawn table/chair coming through your wall at you. I had someone's golf club (#2 iron) enter my guest room and lay at my feet.

Looking at those storms from KBMX. Nasty!
Going to be a rough night up there. Be careful.

An old Chinese Curse says:  May you live in interesting times.

Glad you made it through the storms ok!

I second that!! Glad you didn't have any damage from the TOR's in your area!

Looks like you had some rain too!  We managed 1.3 inches today and the highest rate was .7/hr during the last small storm in which we received a little
"pea sized" hail.  Thankfully no wind damage and not a lot of lightning!

Now the forecast may include up to 1 inch of snow tomorrow!!
