Got some severe weather on it's way to south central Ky. Almost at Louisville now. Already passed through Chuck in Mt Vernon, IL. Winds over 65mph, plus numerous tornado warnings all up & down the squall line. Trees are being snapped off in Indiana & thousands without power. Might be a rough one. Got all my GT's tucked in safe!:D
Well, the ugly D4-10 is outside, but it'll just make it uglier. The steering is busted, so hard to manuver to put away & will do later. Wind is whipping & has been all morning. The cows were acting stupid milking this morning. Heavy weather spooks them pretty bad.

All still on trailer in shed. Just heard a tornado touched down at McAlpin Locks near Louisville. No further info yet.

Parts of this storm are moving at over 80mph, very strong & rare to move overland at this speed. Not got to my place yet, but within an hour should arrive.

Hope you don't suffer any damage.

Losing storm power now, so looking safe enough in my neighborhood. My daughter just texted us & they have the school kids all in the hall under tornado drill fashion. I think we'll all fare pretty well though.

We had a VERY strong line go through here this morning at about 12:30 a.m.. Wind had been blowing strongly all day, but when this line rolled through, winds were high AND there was some VERY heavy rain. Line was moving at least 45-50 mph. Lasted all of about 15 minutes then it was gone.

Hope all's well, Daniel!

Just checked the weather here, they're expecting that it'll hit us at about 4:45 or 5:00. ""Severe thunderstorms and potentially damaging winds." was what they said. We'll hold on tight and pray for the best. I just hope it doesn't knock out the power. I just put dinner in the oven LOL!
