Okay, it’s a finished basement, nice cozy furniture, big screen TV, great place to ride out a bad storm. Tornado warning in effect until 9 p.m. National Weather Service says the storm should hit this town – Geneva – at around 8:20 p.m.
With all the truly destructive tornados lately, I think we’re all taking these warnings a little more seriously.
Okay, having just typed that I went to take a look at the south – this storm is blowing from south to north, somewhat unusual for this area, usually we get west to east. Watched a wall of clouds just roll over in a matter of minutes. Instant dark. Will be back with more if there is more.
Update: It’s 8:53 p.m., which puts us seven minutes short of the tornado warning ending, but the worst of this storm has blown past – still raining like crazy, lots of thunder and lighting, but the wall-o-wind is past…lots of small tree branches, and one bigger one, down in the yard.
