81 Tornados in NC @ 02:45 pm

Tags: ,

So, some really bad storms came through yesterday. An EF3 blew from Sanford to downtown Raleigh and kept going. The closest Tornado was about 10 miles away from us. That's too close for me!

We're alright though, we dodged a bullet where we live and only got some heavy wind and rain. We have to head to Raleigh though, where Bow works out of, and make sure that place is okay.

Scared the heck out of us, we're in southeast VA and only really saw the fringes, but the wind and rain were enough to worry us

There is no where safe! Hurricanes, quakes, tsunamis, tornados..

Ooooh my...


Thank the gods though you're ok and none of them came any closer to you. It is a scary feeling being in tornado areas.. pitch black of night and you have no idea if there is one out there...

I'm glad to hear you guys made it out ok. 10 miles is pretty dang close! Did you guys step out on the porch and watch? ;)

Ironically I didn't get so much as a drop of rain when that storm system spawned over Kansas. :P

We got the crap beat out of us down here in STL, but luckily no tornadoes.
