…we’re too busy running for cover at our house:
We’re halfway between Franklin and the middle “n” in “Indianapolis”. The storm cell you see that just hammered Crawfordsville is tracking southeast and producing large tornadoes and tennis ball-sized hail. I had planned on catching up on blogging for the last couple of days, but I think I’ll be turning the computer off and getting ready to hunker down. The lightning sure is impressive, though. Updates to follow.
** Update at 11:16 — Whoa. That big cell veered southeast and hit us head-on. No tornadoes that we know of, but they’re saying the wind gusts were up around 90 mph, and that’s the hardest I’ve heard it rain since we moved here. I think we must have gotten 2 inches in 20 minutes. Marble-sized hail, too, in enormous amounts. No apparent damage to our house, but part of our neighbor’s privacy fence is blown down. The Mrs. went out and found a plastic garbage can lid blown out on the street, but she couldn’t pick it up because the pressure and temperature changes had it stuck to the road like a suction cup. Wild stuff. We’re happy to be OK.
