Scary weather forecasts


This was our day today...Funnel clouds and all. The only thing that made it better was the Shiatsu massage this afternoon.
PDT FRI OCT 19 2007 ...POSSIBLE TORNADO NEAR HUBBARD EARLY THIS AFTERNOON... NEWS REPORTS INDICATE THAT A POSSIBLE TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN NEAR HUBBARD AROUND 130 PM THIS AFTERNOON...AND DESTROYED THREE GREEN HOUSES. THE AIR MASS OVER SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON IS VERY UNSTABLE THIS AFTERNOON IN THE WAKE OF A STRONG PACIFIC COLD FRONT THAT MOVED THROUGH EARLY TODAY. IN COMBINATION WITH THE STRONG JET STREAM OVER THE AREA...THIS PATTERN HAS BEEN A FAVORABLE ONE TO PRODUCE A FUNNEL CLOUD OR A TORNADO IN THE PAST. THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE OVER SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING...AND THE RISK OF A FUNNEL CLOUD WILL CONTINUE. THERE WILL LIKELY BE HEAVY SHOWERS AT TIMES THAT COULD CAUSE PONDING OF WATER FROM SLOW OR BLOCKED DRAINS DUE TO LEAVES THAT HAVE BEEN FALLING FROM TREES. SMALL HAIL IS ALSO LIKELY...AS WELL AS GUSTY WINDS TO NEAR 30 MPH...AND DEADLY LIGHTNING. BE SURE TO TAKE COVER SHOULD THREATENING WEATHER APPROACH YOUR LOCATION THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING.

Tomorrow is supposed to be the worst of it and then Glorious Sunshine and a possible 70 degrees.

Scary. I have a friend named Barry and him and his family live in Texas... one day we were chatting online (video) and he was saying there was a tornado in the area and if he cut out it was due to power outage. Sure enough he cut out. We telephoned to see if he was okay. He said it went near by and took out the power but everyone was okay. It amazes me people can live in places with such weather. Glad you had an awesome massage though.

Just the sight of one of those things scares the heck out of me. Did you happen to see those "FIRE" tornades from the California fires? Even scarier! ~ jb///

We, on our place went unscathed by the weather thank heavens!
We didn't even have the power flicker.
But our home is a double wide mobile home and you know how tornados are attracted like magnets to them.
The fire storms in California are even scarier than this, fire tornados could you even imagine the horror of living there?
