There was some exciting weather in these parts Thursday night. I haven’t really gotten a full picture of what went on, but it included major winds and possible tornadoes that did a lot of damage in some residential areas, mainly in the Northwest part of Fayette County. I’ve seen reports of some houses being total losses. I just wanted to post a quick note here that I’m alive, well, and unharmed, in case any of my faithful readers have been alarmed by news reports or internet gossip about the storms.
All Tatertown got was a lot of rain (about 2 inches overnight, on top of 1.5 earlier in the week) and some really impressive lightning/thunder. On my way in to work Friday morning, I started seeing trees damaged by high wind as I got close to Kylie’s house, but didn’t have time to stop and see if she was okay.
From the reports I’ve seen, it looks like most of the damage was just a little bit southwest of me. I think I’ll take a slightly different route home that will take me a little closer to ground zero to see what I can see.
