    I know, I'm sorry, I'm just wetting myself with excitement! Severe Storms = greatest thing of summer.

    For pete's sake, the last thing I want is for someone to get hurt or killed. I love storms, and have enthusiasm about them. On that note, the skies have had a slight tinge of green to them for a few minutes now.

    We live in Huxley and we had some funnels close to touching down right over our house but luckily it didn't make it all the way down. Of course I kept yelling at the wife to hide downstairs as I stood by the door and took pictures;)


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Re: Tornao!!!

    In hindsight, that was fun! I watched the storm float over JTS on to the airport before it became too hard to find out what was going on. Did any tornados actually hit the ground?


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    Well that beats the short thunderstorms we had here today. Thanks for the pics - if a hurricane heads this way I'll try to post up some sweat pics - as I'm hauling azz up north!
