Hows the weather?

So with the crazy ass weather we've has been getting I'm shocked there wasn't a thread yet.

There was just a tornado in Springfield, Ma. Hope those from the area are okay.
Also reports of a twister near Keene, NH.

In Vermont there was hail the size of baseballs falling.

Those are some thinkers! Hopefully they were using sharpened fence posts to stab people and kill them then they just look like tornado fatalities  star

Re: Hows the weather?

I was driving when it hit, fortunately I was about 20 miles north of it.  The rains were so intense that high on my wipers still left me with about >1' visibility.  Fortunately the golf ball size hail somehow did not damage my car.  The sky looked truly sinister during the whole event.  End of days I tell ya.  Maybe Camping was right, but he and his followers were just not the chosen 2 million that were taken up.

I don't have a garage, so the thought of hail scares the hell out of me.

That's why I bought one of those Northern Tool 8 leg shelter "garages".  $200, $100 in real anchors, 6 years (it's now gotten kinda trashy, the winds this spring killed the fabric) and it's "non-permanent" so they can't tax me on it.  The aluminum hood really scares me when it comes to hail.

Feel bad for the Taxachusetts victims of the Tornado.  I assume LC, that you got hit by the storms, the line missed me by about 20 miles. I was watching the Radar when the storms passed through.

Re: Hows the weather?

arrow-up I was also watching the radar yesterday intently. It was really freaky to see those red tornado warning boxes appear in Massachusetts, and then more in northern New Hampshire and eastern Maine... You just don't hardly ever see that kind of weather up in New England!

Re: Hows the weather?

This makes me want to build my Hidden underground room even more now  driving Nothing cooler than an adult fort.

A few years ago we had a tornado here in PA that wiped out half of a development and was less then a third of a mile from my house 'as the crow flies' I had to drive 12 miles to finally get around all the downed trees and to my house (normally a 2 mile drive from where I ended up having to detour around the damage). And just this year we had another minor tornado that did damage to a few roofs. Before the first one I had never heard of a tornado in PA in over 18 years I was living there.

Re: Hows the weather?

With all the talk of hail, I would think our hoods are pretty tough. I imagine the rigidity of aluminum would take a pounding better than our roofs. On that note last Thursday I drove thru two hail showers with average dime size hail without any damage but my neighbors 4runner got a bunch of dings.

I think earth is PO'd at us, been a hell of a spring storm season. We just missed a couple tornadoes here by literally a mile last month, pulled up one of our taller trees a bit. And now hurricane season has started so I'm hoping for the best. eek

Re: Hows the weather?

Hail scares the shit out of me. If there is talk of it I wait by the window to move my car into a near by car wash.
We've been getting crazy floods up here in VT. I was driving rt 2 to St Johnsbury Sunday and a bridge was totally gone. Had to back track and detour up through Cabot to get there. When I finally got to St J I found this

A tiny creek normally 5 feet wide, flooded and picked up thousands of cut logs and destroyed 200ft of rt 5.

Re: Hows the weather?

I got called into work today to do a little tiny 250 mile round trip to southern VT  unamused
I had to drive through one hell of a thunderstorm. The lightening was non stop, several strikes per second for about half an hour. Now it's just hot and humid and the lack of wind doesn't help.
