OK Mother Nature, Enough Already!!!

As I am writing this, I am listening to tornado sirens going off. They have been going off for at least a half hour now. And they started going off before the TV or the sheriff's office announced a tornado warning. We have been watching all of the local stations with all of their latest weather reports and it didn't even look like we were going to get any rain. Yeah, we got a little rain and a bit of wind but the wind wasn't any worse than it has been all day long. Sooo, the sheriff's office finally breaks in and says that NE Hancock County is under a tornado warning--the same area that got blasted the other night. From the weather radar, the bad weather has gone over us. And, the sirens finally just shut down. The TV said that this storm is moving at 76 mph!! Man, that is a fast moving storm. But, it sounds like NW Ohio (the Toledo area) and SE Michigan are getting pounded. Power out, trees down, power lines down, tornadoes sighted etc. At least, we dodged yet another bullet here in our little corner of the world. Oops, there go the sirens again!

Couldja PLEASE send some of that wet stuff down here? It's not fair of y'all up there in the midwest to hog it all to yourselves :p

Seriously - I hope things calm down up there and that everyone remains safe!
