A little about my self -

I joined weather Underground in August of 2005 right after they opened the blogging feature. I have been a weather hobbyist since the middle 60's when I lived on the west coast of Florida, north of the Tampa Bay area. I currently live in a small community in central Illinois.

I have been through numerous Hurricanes during my life time. The worse being Hurricane Camille in August 17,1969, A Cat 5, where the eye passed over the location I was at. That being Biloxi, Ms when I was in the USAF stationed at Keesler AFB.

Hope the foot gets better. Ok, the obvious question is: what did you do?

And, how is it now? At least the weather is quiet. I hope your holiday weekend isn't spent hobbling, though. Take care.

Oh, hi wab :) No, I had nothing too bad up this way that day if I remember correctly. Tomorrow night could get some, but actually didn't look since early this morning.

Hope you are all well there.

Hi Wabit - I was listening to music earlier in the day, too ..... One humdinger of a storm went through this afternoon, but the pressure has dropped from the 1020mb it was yesterday to 973mb today! No wonder my ears hurt!

I see you're only 10ยบ colder than me. It's so cold! My blood has been thinning for a hot, hot summer..it's harsh.

Should have checked with my Dad before that last squall line. He's in a home now, so he gets the complete old folk reaction to what's coming. He said the weather nuts went off like he'd never seen. One lady demanded 2X4s for the windows, a few hunkered in the hall & a few were issuing forecasts including a retired NWS guy. It's his first 'cane season there so it could be interesting.

Wab, did you get any frost? It's right on the edge here, but I think we'll be OK here.

Take care!

Good morning Wab,

Glad you are back. Looks like another active day for tornadoes and severe weather in the Mid West...
Hope they avoid your area.

Hi Wabit,

I had to go to the celler to find your blog.

Are you hiding out in the tree house again?

Have a Blessed and Happy Easter Weekend!
