    Anyone being hit by this early spring storm?
    Rain, flooding and tornado watches in our area.

    We're just really wet.

    My pretty back deck view.....
    a bit muddy and wet. Wonder where the cows are hiding?

    We had about 6 inches of snow Monday then 15 inches again Friday and now that the temps are in the 40's its melting and with the steady rain we got all morning it makes me nervous...so far the wind isnt what they said we would get.

    The creek behind my house is up over it's banks right now. It's not raining too hard now, but it was pouring this morning. The thunder and lightning started around midnight last night. That's so unusual for February!

    We are in the area of watches also, it is raining pretty good here, we did get some hail earlier. My family up in Indiana is having flooding issues. Be safe everyone, mother nature is on a warpath!

    We are expecting some rain. Hope so. We have drought warnings so could use some. Hope it clears so you can enjoy the spring.

    My mom always marked on her calendar, if it thundered in Feb. it would be a cold spell in April around the same time. Now I'm questioning the April, can't remember if that is right.Has anyone else heard this. She's gone now, so can't ask her. But I know it was true saw it happen a lot.

    We sure could have used some of that rain in the Texas panhandle, we had 70 mph wind gusts yesterday and fires were breaking out everywhere. The last I heard 61,000 acres burned and about 44 houses in surrounding counties. Whew, it didn't get too close to my area but a little too close for comfort.

    Interesting theory, we had thunder and lightening with the snow storm last Friday.

    The severe thunderstorms roared across Missouri last night..my immediate area was spared from lots of damage, but across the Mississippi River in IL, the damage was widespread from news reports this AM. Kentucky was hard hit with damages from at least 2 tornadoes.

    We feel very blessed today...now the sun is shinning brightly, but it is COLD!!!

    HOPE ALL WHO READ THIS IS WARM AND DRY!!!!!

    Tennessee is one of the most beautiful states. With views like that how do you get anything done?

    Yep, right there with you! Sirens keep going off, Dachies refuse to go outside. Power outages, and school closings. I am ready for it to pass!

    We're under tornado watch until 8 PM. We had a storm pass through earlier. Heavy wind, rain, lightning and thunder. My poor dog was scared to death. The sky was so dark, it looked like night time. Thank goodness that part has passed over.

    It is raining hard with thunder & lightning now.
    Earlier there was a tornado that touched down in the northern part of our county. No news yet on damage.

    Pretty bad wind here in Jasper, TN and a little hail. I was without power for almost four hours but it is back on now. This is good because I was suffering QMB withdrawal!

    WE had a big rain on Sunday here in western WA. But I am not going to complain after hearing about the fires in Texas!! All of us who have had enough of the rain should send it down to those people in TX and OKLA. I know they would love it!!!

    We had tornado warnings earlier, thunder storms and hail. The hail was marble sized. It has passed over now.
