So Sunday night, there was an EF1 tornado 1-2 miles north of my house. It was supposedly 300-400 yards wide, and its path was about 6 miles. (And at one point the gust was 110mph... and EF2's start at 111mph.)

 

The destruction is pretty crazy (LOTS of trees down and buildings damaged, not to mention power lines), but there were only a few injuries and no fatalities. So it could have been worse.

I'd like to pics and videos, but I don't want stalkers. ;):p

Pffft, I'm the only one who vaguely knows where to go.

 

Glad you're safe.  I have a friend that lives in that general area too

Google maps knows all. :p

 

Hmm, can't get a link to this photo gallery, but maybe I can get the link to this video of an aerial view of the damage...

 

Er, nevermind... here's a photo gallery. Just forget how near I said I lived. :p

 

And video of aerial footage, shot with a drone.

 

 

 

And thanks. :)

 

Yesterday I drove by some of the areas; some of it's cleaned up but there's still a lot to go.

I am irrationally proud of Seattle for dishing up rain - even a little - to all the PAX convention people. You thought you were safe because it's August? Ha!

They should have planned on it going to rain, because it was in Seattle :p

Well it'd been in the high seventies and low eighties most of the month, so it was actually a huge turnaround. :p Me, I was ecstatic. Hate the heat.

The tree in our front yard is usually the last one to change on the street and it's changing before some of the other trees on the street

Crapload of snow here...

 

Tuesday we set records for temperature (16 degrees F) and amount of snow (about 9 inches). By now, we've probably had at least a foot since Monday/Tuesday.  And we're only 5 inches away from breaking the record for snowfall in November.

 

Not really all that unusual... 'cept that it's November, haha.

 

 

But at least I'm not in Buffalo, NY, lol. They've had 4 feet so far.

Uh, if you knew what 4 feet of snow did/looked like, you really wouldn't want it. :p

 

 

 

And, it's official... my city broke the record for snowiest November. A record that had stood since 1895, haha. 29 inches and counting. And this is just mostly from the start of this week till now. But it's gonna warm up and rain in a couple days (after some freezing rain, yay), and will probably melt all over before temps drop again and ice it all over.

If you got some precipitation, send it on over to San Francisco, and I'll send you a little spare warmth. It was a high of 61 today. That's just unnecessary this time of year.
