Everyone Here is Fine

I, all the dogs and everyone I'm close to in Tennessee survived the horrific storms last night. None of us even had any major damage. However, the current count is 17 dead in the Tri-Cities and several times that injured. People who have lived here 30-40 years are saying they've never seen anything like it. I've been here 11 years and if you put all the bad weather we've had during that time into one big storm, it wouldn't even come close to what happened last night. The national weather service center here issued 70 different tornado warnings. (It covers from Chattanooga to about a hundred miles into VA.) We had "spiked" hail... instead of being round, it had spines sticking out all over... which I had never heard of before. Several times during the 5+ hours Mother Nature was yelling at us, the dogs yelled back... usually they are pretty quiet during bad weather. Last night they were upset. And when it was over, just like that, it was over.

Happy Birthday!
