Just in the last half hour, the winds have picked up, wind gusts predicted up to 75 mph, expected to last most of night.
Just feeling a bit edgey right now, the tree outside my window here is swaying quite a bit.
I have seen so many videos of the massive destruction of entire towns south of here, in Cincinnati, Ohio and Louisville, Henryville, Kentucky.
Talked to my brother in Kentucky this afternoon when i saw his area was right in the middle of the tornado warning area. He said they were watching 4 rotating cells overhead, but so far, none had touched down. He has some fancy electronic gadget that he can hold in his hand and get the weather maps all over the world.
Now my neighbor just called from across the road, she wanted to make sure I had a place to get to if it got too noisy outside. Already decided, Bridget and I will go get in the shower, with our pillows and a blanket. Her pillow is much smaller than mine
Nah, it's windy, but according to the Meteorologist from Toledo, the blocked tornado area will not come up this far North. The pressure over Lake Erie will hold it back.
But, tell you what...My hands, wrists and fingers are really complaining, as are my ankles and feet. Will double up the Hydrcodone tonight!
Sure hope this mess covering 2/3 s of the US does not make it across the Atlantic. Wow, it sure is roaring out there. Don't worry, this is Northern Ohio, we are only getting the high winds. I just can't comprehend all those thousands of families who have lost everything tonight, spending the night in High School gynasiums and the like.
Sleep well, my friends, till the morning light. L.xx
