The storms are on the move again tonight. The White River is flooded with more rain on the way. Gosh i can't even keep up with the number the state has had the couple days.

Please stay safe everyone, and let us know when the worst is past so we know you're alright.
Hope it calms down for you all.

The lone super cell making tornado's slid just a few miles north of me...like 10 miles. Some damage reported. At least one house severely damaged, and a barn leveled. I'm good for now, but more coming my way from down Dale's way.

More rain today...... glug, glug, glug.......

Tomorrow and Friday are supposed to be dry, maybe more rain this weekend. Oh well, it IS Spring, isn't it?

No telling how long it'll take for the garden to dry out. I bet I'd sink up to my knees if I went out there now!

Dan, I just looked at the weather map. Looks like you'll be getting LOTS of rain, if it isn't there already.

I hope everyone fairs well! It'll be hot and dry before we know it!

Not sure how much we've got, but been raining all night, all day, and likely all night again by the looks of radar! Next county over lost most of it's new Fairgrounds buildings to a twister. So far, no reports of injury locally.

Glad you're all OK. We're pulling for you. What's left of the first storm that went thru down there looks to be headed out towards George.

Just rode the 4 wheeler in the rain to check the creek water-gap fencing in one field. I couldn't believe both those gaps are still intact! Water is up to or over the lower wires, but good so far. A log about 20"+ is jammed crossways about 14' across the creek, and if she breaks loose, the gaps will be history. If it holds strong, later I'll go drag it out of the creek so it won't tear the gaps out later.

Daniel, you guys still ok down there, we have had four twisters go over here since tues nite. power is coming back on now, lot of roofs, pole barns down north of us. We have had some high wind, and heavy lightning, Hope you and yours are all doing ok. This has got to be one of the wettest springs I have ever seen. Need to mow up at the estate, but no way, was out in the pastures this morning with four wheeler, water is running out of every small hill on the place, waterways are all saturated. Should be a good year for grass hay. By the time we get back to mowing, it will almost have to be baled.

Keep your head down, stiff upper lip, and all that. Regards, George

We had a tornado touch down about 2 miles from our house and not only did we not know it but we didn't even know there was a tornado warning.

Still under a tornado watch till 1am, but looks to be pretty much over....finally! One small line west of us, but I think will slide north of me. Look out George (Nutndun) as it appears to be heading your way.

We got nailed with some of the storm last night. There are reports of a couple of tornadoes that touched down but they were not within 20 miles of us. All kinds of flooding this morning on our way in to work. Every detour road we took ended up being closed or flooded. So we had to backtrack a little and take the long way around everything to get to work. Ended up being about a 1/2 hour late. Hopefully some of it recedes by the time the work day is over.
