Had some pretty bad thunderstorms come through last night, as well as tornadoes (yes, as in plural). Jessica gets very twitchy about those, so we spent a quiet night curled up in bed, watching movies, waiting for them to pass. We got lucky; none of them affected us, even the rain wasn't too bad, but there was some destruction not too far away. This is a storm front that the weather services had been tracking for some time, and was responsible for something like 20 deaths and twice again as many injuries. Like I said, though, we're fine, the ugly part passed north of us.

it's "hills" in the western part, yes. like kentucky is "hills" in the eastern part. (same with north carolina - "hills" in the western part)

Dude, tornadoes scare the shit out of me. I had nightmares about them my entire life and yet only came close to experiencing one in St. Louis. I lived next to Heman (lol) Park and these idiots blare this fucking doomsday siren at 5am in the morning at least once a week to test it. Boy cries wolf much? When we have an actual disaster practically approach us nobody paid the siren any mind until the power went out and the threat was very real. I was in Warsong Gulch and got to tell everyone "OH HAI GUIZ, looks like my house is about to be hit by a tornado, nice knowing you all" right before that happened.

Next thing I know is I am freaking out and smoking (I had quit before this happened) indoors and grabbing all 5 of my cats and running into the basement. The tornado (was there even one?) never made it to my house. DO NOT WANT EVER AGAIN.
