Wow, big, BIG thunder!
It just shook my windows. Wow!

EEEKKK, and the weatherbug is saying funnel clouds and hail... it's heading right for me, too. ACK!

4. I'm OK
Like a fool I went to put the car in the garage and secure the patio furniture. It started hailing and the wind came up all at once. I was pelted by hail and had a plastic flower pot (with a plant in it) smack me in the back. I'm in and all's good.

Remind me NOT to do that next time.

signing off as it's really bad here.

Thanks for the concern. :hug:

10. From what I can see it's now heading your way.

I suggest you secure your patio furniture BEFORE it hits. Take it from me hail and flower pots flying at 38 MPH on winds hurt! I have whelps. :(
Edit: clarity.
