OMG! What a light show! Not sure I've ever seen as much lightning in any storm ever. My daughter was driving home from work at about 7:45 in hail, and then at 8pm a Tornado Warning!!! Her timing in this wasn't the best.

Spent about 30 minutes in the basement last night.

Honestly, with the way that storm kicked up, I wasn't surprised by the tornado warning.

Anyone else have weather related wierdness last night?

Just lots of rain, wind and lightning out here last night. Power was out for about 2 minutes and Satellite for about an hour. Now, two Fridays ago Tornado sirens were going off left and right. Clouds were dropping out of the sky almost all the way to the ground then breaking up. It was awesome and no basement here either lol.

You'd of thought I would have had a power outage, but didn't. I live 5 miles west of the lake. The rotation started in Zion (another town on the lake) and was traveling 50 mph southeast. Must of moved east of me. Crazy

There were a few downed trees. LOTS of rain. I had to walk a few blocks to pick up some food in it. That was fun. Glad it didn't start to hail on me. Here's a link to that bad storm on the 22nd I think. Some kid from the college 3 blocks south of me took it.

I wanted to. Believe me. I had some hail damage on my last car and it was not a happy day. Luckily the car survived this bout against mother nature without any battle scars :)
