There are some epic revelation flash flood storms moving through. Dry to flooded in 5 minutes around here. Nowhere near as bad as april this year. I can report from Chicago, the worse has passed. We even had 70 degree weather and the sun for about 30 minutes today. Considering yesterday it was 47 no wonder nature is goofed up.

We expect to be hit between now and midnight. I expect most of the issues to be in the north and west parts of the state from what we are hearing, but some of the high wind gusts are already entering our area. I think we should be alright although severe weather warnings are out for the state until midnight. I wouldn't be surprised if we lost power, it seems as though that happens at the drop of a hat in my community even though all our utilities are underground. We get our feed from the older sections which are above ground.

Tornado sirens going off in our area (Franklin County), but the warnings are for about 10 miles east of us, we should be past the issue. Been a while if ever I've heard them in November!

Day later report;
Was watching a local NBC station as the storm front went thru IL and IN. I live on the Northside of Indy, and all we got was some light rain. 8 miles South is downtown Indy, and it was pouring there, but no real heavy damage like Kokomo, Washington, Lebanon and Lafayette(and others, I'm sure).

Thanks for the thoughts, BH!

Prayers out to all!

It was interesting. I was watching F1 when the station took ever with the weather. I was also checking the radar app on my phone. I see all this red and purple moving quickly across the screens, but we/I only had brief hits of clouds and rain, but lots of wind. I'm 8200 North, and looking South, could see no dark skies.

People North and South got hit the hardest in IN it seems.

Weather is a finicky phenomenon.

If you're looking at radar - look for hooks, clouds forming J sort of thing.

Glad you're all well and safe.

We have what I would call good meteorologists; they explain stuff so we understand better. They would zoom in and show a particular formation and tell us what that meant. The info is nice, but the "weather gurl(AB)" is quite easy on the eyes, too

We had intense straight line winds in the Wabash Valley....absolutely stripped every leaf from every tree. No damage here at the ranch, but there were tornadoes across the river and to the north and south.

Did you all notice on the television news that the first thing up on the piles on sticks that were once people's houses was the American flag? I saw this several times during one broadcast.....made me feel midwestern proud!

I'm glad all of us made it through that, a number of people weren't so lucky. We should all feel blessed.
