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.
