It is hitting us (Knoxville, TN) right now. I emailed the office and told them that I would be working from home today.
We are in a severe thunderstorm warning and tornado watch right now and the watches until 7:00 pm tonight... They broke into the national news this morning a couple of times asking people to stay put until this line of storms get through and warned that more are coming.
Glad you all are OK, that must have been really awful worrying about your daughter - I would have been climbing the walls !!!
River - stay warm and dry - I can remember getting caught out on the river when a sudden afternoon storm came up while kayaking -- with nowhere to go, that is my worst storm memory !!!! --- - hope you don't have similar memories !!! Talk about feeling like a paddling duck / lightning strike target - that is what we felt like !!!
Will be watching for others to check in....
