  1. I'm so sorry to hear that...please stay safe, will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.
  2. Good thing I was already awake for work this morning. :) I'm hoping things will settle a bit before I take off for town, but I'm pretty sure I heard a few hailstones smacking down during that storm. Gonna be an interesting weekend.
  3. Ah. Sorry, missed that one. Usually there's something on the NWS site itself but it seems I missed that as well. 😳
  4. If you happen to have a SAME-equipped weather radio, here is a handy link for finding the one that services your particular area. Georgia's NOAA Weather Radio Network Note: At the time of this post WXJ53 out of Cleveland is offline, I assume for technical reasons. It was while trying to figure out what's going on with it that I found this page and thought of this thread.
  5. Lumpkin County appears to have been spared anything severe thus far...we had a lot of thunder earlier and now a lot of pouring rain but that's all. Crossing my fingers that it will move on soon. I don't relish the idea of doing my Friday errands in the middle of a monsoon.
  6. Hmm...if it holds together, I guess that means I can look forward to being blasted awake by a thunderstorm watch later in the night. :P
  7. I don't mind a plain old "garden variety" thunderstorm in the night, truth be told. Depending on what I'm reading, it makes for great atmosphere!
  8. Starting this topic because well, I'm curious. And I thought it would help us all to learn more. Often I see or hear phrases used by meteorologists that aren't entirely clear to me. For example, "brief spin-up tornado" is getting a lot of use these days, as one would expect during springtime. But what does it mean? I am guessing it simply means a weak, brief tornado but wanted to be sure.
  9. I believe the worst of it is done. The rain has stopped, and it's noticeably cooler outside.
  10. I can believe it! I'll glance outside once, it's sunny, then a short time later it's pouring again!
  11. We just picked up a flash flood warning until after midnight, in Lumpkin and Dawson counties. And the rain has been blowing sideways here!
  12. A severe thunderstorm watch was just issued for my area until 10 PM. And yes, looks like we have some re-development going on...
  13. Thunderstorm warning in eastern Lumpkin county. However, I'm on the west side of the county and the storm in question has already passed us by. I even see Mr. Sun peeking through.
  14. And here comes the thunder, lol. Do you suppose God is reading this board?
  15. Same here in Lumpkin County...just a nice rainy morning, thus far. Getting ready to settle in with my library books and enjoy it!
