Angry Weather Gods from Midwest Strike Mid-South

Last night, there was this fantastic line of storms, a good 100-150 mi wide, that flew north-south through middle America. At 5:30 p.m. Central, the line was near Indianapolis; at 11:30 last night, it was smacking Huntsville with 35-45mph winds. Rick and Jessica can back me up on this, but there’s no way that you can drive that fast from there to here; that probably averages 85 mph. It was quite incredible to behold.

We’re about to get smacked by another N-S-moving system, but this line—again, about the width of Alabama at its northern border with Tennessee–is about to move to through here. I give it, oh, an hour.

North Alabama is about to get an ass-kicking.

Everybody duck!


  1. Dude, I slept through stuff last night. I didn’t know about it til Rick told me. Today I got to spend time in a Boeing Building on the basement floor fitness room watching dan satterfield. yay! Oh and listening to the PA system announcements Re: weather. fun times!

  2. I’m sure you’re real likely to have stuff down at your house, Jessica. Several times, they zoomed in on the Sparkman HS area and had stuff going right down 53. 🙁

    Here I was, in a one-story, metal building. I don’t care that the NWS Huntsville office is next door–I still feel exposed. At least I wasn’t in the high-bay or anything.
