We’re all gonna die…again!

The weather situation in North Texas is growing more precarious with each passing hour.  To wit (from NOAA):

THERE IS A MODERATE RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FOR MUCH OF NORTH TEXAS TONIGHT.

THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP THROUGH THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS. TORNADOES…LARGE DESTRUCTIVE HAIL…AND WINDS IN EXCESS OF 60 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE.

IN ADDITION TO THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT…HEAVY RAINFALL IS FORECAST AND A FLASH FLOOD WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR NORTHERN PORTIONS OF NORTH TEXAS. ADDITIONAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 4 INCHES WILL BE LIKELY.

Multiple tornadoes have already been reported, with at least one—if not two—still on the ground to the west moving east.

Hail to the size of baseballs has fallen across multiple counties, and this system is only now clearing its throat.  A temperature inversion (cap) has prohibited it from doing much until now, but that inversion is weakening as the storm strengthens.

A great deal of damage already has been reported west of here where confirmed tornadoes—rain shielded to hide the threat—have made rampaging runs across multiple counties.

The situation is expected to worsen overnight into tomorrow morning as a potent combination of circumstances provide ample fuel for severe storm development.

We’ll see how it goes.

  1. Got hit by what? A tree? I’m sorry to hear that. Is it badly damaged?

    I had some windows blown out and a door/door frame broken, all of which are being replaced today. I got hit by something very strong about 4:15 or 4:30 this morning. It was like a giant hammer hitting the west side of the house (facing the patio where there’s nothing but windows and French doors). I thought a tornado was hitting us. Thankfully it just broke some windows and tore up one door and door frame in the living room. Could have been worse…

  2. the basketball goal fell over and dented the roof between the sunroof and windshield then proceeded to work it’s way down the windshield and hood. very pretty scratches 🙄

  3. guess the kids were all cuddled up next to daddy wondering what the hell was going on and if they were off to meet Toto :mrgreen:

  4. Ah, the basketball goal. Well, one wonders who might have left a possible projectile weapon standing next to a vehicle when the threat of dangerous thunderstorms was so clear… 😈

    Joking aside, I’m sorry to hear that. Hopefully they’ll get it taken care of without too much fuss.

    As for The Kids, we took shelter in the bathroom for a bit when it got bad here. I just posted a synopsis of what happened. Frightening, yes, and for them a worrisome event since they don’t understand what’s happening. Still, we all survived.

    Some of them don’t mind storms at all; some of them get very touchy-feely for reassurance that all will be okay. When I herded them into the bathroom with me, however, they all became aware that something was amiss. But afterward we had treats and lots of loving so they’d know they did fine and came through it unscathed.

  5. sorry, i was in class last night and didn’t get a chance to see any news reports and with all the BS going on under the roof, i haven’t been able to focus much on what happens outside the roof. Sometimes i wonder how i haven’t completely lost my feeble little mind. 😛

    As for the kids, glad they had their treats and lovin. are they in need of any kitty cocaine?
