Wild and Wooly Weather!
It's getting a little wild weather-wise around here this evening. While I was in West Helena this afternoon waiting at Jerri's until time for Tah Kwon Do, the tornado sirens went off twice. Apparently there were two different funnel clouds seen and one possibly touched down. Those bad boy twisters are popping up all over the place tonight.
The last photo is of the latest radar map, follow the Miss. River down from Memphis about an inch and I'm sitting right about there.
I'm outta here now, before that line of severe thunderstorms makes it here.
I sure hope the roof stays on tonight.
UPDATE: That severe thunderstorm warning turned into a tornado warning here about 5 minutes after I posted so Zach and I left James standing at the door looking out while he and I went and sat in the floor of my closet for the next 20 minutes or so. The roof stayed on, guess we'll have to go do a search for those lawn chairs again tomorrow though, they usually end up in a tree somewhere when we get bad winds and storms.
