    It's not looking pretty for Omaha. Just got to wish my Mom happy Mother's Day and to enjoy her tornadoes. While I miss a good thunderstorm, I do not miss these nasty things.

    Maybe another hail damage sale at Woodhouse in Blair, Nebraska. This would be like the 3rd big one in 10 years. 1000s of cars outside in close proximity.

    In SE Iowa, don't know if there was any damage from today's storm. Had a tornado just about one mile soyth of us two weeks ago and didn't know it. Only realuzed it when I drove to work Mon morning and our neighbors barn was strewn about their farm field.

    Your not kidding that looks like a large tornado heading towards Omaha. My brother lives in Cheynne though and they have 8" of snow, yikes.

    Were you there on purpose, or just traveling through? My parents live in New Sharon.

    Re: Mother's day weather thread

    Got pretty dicey around here in NW Lincoln. Out west the storm was going NE then turned E then right before Lincoln it turned NE again and headed towards Omaha. Have had plenty of wind and rain this evening. Sirens went of in my neighborhood 2x- sure glad this spring the city decided to put a siren about a block away from the crib- found out tonite that shiz will wake you up from a dead sleep if a storm rolls up in the middle of the night- which, in its own way, is very comforting.

    Edit: When I was outside watching stuff- I can see the main road from my deck and it looked like a convoy of storm chasing vehicles just lined up waiting to figure where to go next. Or maybe they wanted the "money shot" as we live kinda on a top of a ridge and have a good vantage point to the north/northwest.
