So I wake up around 10 am and go outside for my morning smoke. I then blink and walk a little closer to exiting my car port. I quieted down and heard sirens. Tornado sirens. Lovely, I thought and walked inside to download a scanner for my radio. Mainly to listen to the police and fire dept.

I started feeding D'arcy and listened to the scanner. Turns out that about 15 minutes from my home clouds were rotating. I then picked my child up and hung out in the bath tub streaming live coverage of the super cell storm going on in my area. I spent 45 minutes in the bath tub with my daughter.

-.- gotta love weather and its fuck ups.

The tornado hit Adairsville. Which is 40 minutes away from us.

You ready to go from 70 degrees for a high to negative 2 below for a low.Let me tell you we broke a record high of 62 somewhere between 10 PM-1 AM(some places hit 70 degrees).Temps then fell drasticly yestarday.We where at 42 before we shot up.Now today temps still falling with 4 inches of snow on the ground.They will keep falling till they stop at 2 below zero.We got lucky.We also got this same rain system(The one your talking about)but all we got was rain no tornadoes.We where under a flood warning and a winter weather advisory at the same time.Wish it where still 60 degrees outside.First this all started out as rain then changed to sleet that felt like it was going to get trapped in your arms like glass then to snow/sleet mix then to all snow that stopped then came round 2 then that stopped and vet cold northwest winds picked up.Enjoy the warmth while it lasts.


P.S. Try to construct a weather machine like stewie did in family guy so you can controle the weather.

That must have been a rather harrowing experience, but I think you handled it as good as any other person could possibly do. Have you ever been that close to a tornado before?

And you can download a scanner?

I've been through a tornado before while riding in the car with my mother. That was crazy. O.o So it's not fun at all. It didn't hit our house or anything so that's cool and all. Kind of inspired me to chase after storms myself for a while there.

So I know the warning signs of when a tornado hits.

And yeah I got a police scanner on my phone. It works too. Later on last night the power went out due to a windy storm that blew by. So we listened to it and found out that a limb had fallen over down the road from us to cause the outage.

I think I might have to find this scanner app, might come in handy living out here in BFE. Especially since I've learned that no one really takes the tornado siren seriously (they use it for stuff like accidents as well)... not that we can hear the nearest one from our house anyway.
