It's been a wild day weather-wise. Prairiewind and I have just returned from the neighbor's underground storm shelter after tornado warnings were issued for our county. The storms that prompted the warnings have also resulted in 7 confirmed deaths so far tonight just south of here in/near Fayetteville TN. These storms started down around Huntsville AL and just kept forming and reforming, with 5 or 6 separate cells moving through the same areas one after another. Along with several strong tornadoes there has been very heavy rains resulting in flash flooding with roads washed out and/or underwater throughout middle Tennessee and lots of folks are without power tonight. Our thoughts and prayers are going out to all those effected by the severe weather in the southeast yesterday and today, and more bad weather is forecast for tomorrow as well.
