OT - Storms

I hope all the Eggers in the central US are ok.  Looks like a terrible night of storms and damage.  Stay safe out there.
If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

Some Eggs, some Weber stuff, the occasional Traeger, and various other things that make flames and hold coals.

    Us midwesterner’s are no doubt accustomed to a twister. There’s nothing scarier than having tornado sirens go off in the middle of the night and having 15 minutes or less to get to cover. What we aren’t used to is experiencing this in freaking December.  

    Indiana escaped for the most part. So sad this happened two weeks from Christmas

    My Wife’s Sister and Brother In Law recently sold their house in Mayfield, KY at Cumberland Shores where the Tornadoes stuck. The subdivision was completely destroyed.

    I am glad your family is safe!  That is too close for comfort.

    Watching an extended report on ABC News tonight, of the tornado damage.  Dayam.  And I'm really hoping everyone here is okay.   :|

    Just saw a small part of the devastation in Kentucky with my own eyes.

    There are no words to describe it.

    No live rescues have occurred since early Saturday. The state parks have been opened up to provide temporary shelter, and many of the schools that are still standing in the areas effected have also been designated as shelters.

    Donations of money, and supplies are needed, and thankfully over 2.34 million has come in in the first 24 hours.

    Driving back home, yesterday, it was good to see truck loads of equipment (massive generators, water pumps/purification systems, etc.,) rolling in from FEMA. 

    Appreciate our Governor and the President taking action immediately to support these people.

    Whatever images you see, posted on any media source, it is exponentially worse.

    Here is a list of opportunities to donate, if you are able:

    Anything you feel you are able to do, will help save lives. So many people have been effected from this disaster in many more ways than you can imagine.

    Thank you in advance for anything you can do.

    Just terrible. My wife told me about this yesterday and showed me pictures from her phone. The pics reminded me of the Joplin devastation.

    hard to comprehend this, most destruction ive ever seen was a vertical micro-burst that took out a barn in an instance. didnt even see it happened, got to the barn a few minutes later

    Went through this is Nov. 2013 when 1600 homes were destroyed.  The damage is mind boggling.  Homes cleaned down to the foundation, lawns lifted and laid down across the street, plastic drinking straws embedded in trees, mother nature is no joke.

    ill take snow any day. that micro blast looked like the finger of god pressed the huge barn to about 20 inches thick and everything around it flew away from the barn up around 200 yards. no warning or anything. cant image tornados, we see them and snap a pick if lucky, no reason to even turn the boat around

    The small town of Bremen, Ky (about 20mins from where we live)was hit extremely hard. Last I heard there were 12 deaths.  We were extremely lucky to not be in this one’s path. I know many people that their lives were changed drastically because of this storm.

    Glad you are safe. Thinking about heading down during my vacation to help out the rest of the year.

    A friend of ours lost lost the roof to her home, her attached garage with her 86 corvette has disappeared, and the looters hit her home and took her deep freezer, and some personal valuables.

    I remember that as well. We had moved back to Morton a couple months before that storm. I remember driving to peoria right after the storm passed through not knowing the damage it had caused thinking the sky was very eerie. 

    There was a tornado that came through our neighborhood in 2003 while I was still in high school.  I was driving home and got into our house as the tornado passed by less than 2 minutes later. The sound those things make is not something you will ever forget.

    Find the last standing tree and string them up.  In 2013 we had to stand guard and put in a curfew because of looting.  A lot of those caught were out of state.

    I went to Mayfield on Monday to drop off some donations from my bass fishing club. The level of devastation is hard to comprehend. Please keeps those folks in your thoughts and prayers.

    Put them to work in a chain gang cleaning up first. About a year ought to do , then string them up.
  • Let them have a trial.  It’s very possible they went there to protect private property.
  • I see one of them is named Brandon.  

    Let’s go!!!
