quote:Originally posted by tweenerRichard - I got to practice a little storm chasing this weekend (actually turing tail and running, but pretty much the same thing). I went home to Arkansas Friday, and took the kids to the bookstore. We'd just gotten settled in when the warning sirens went off and they made the announcement on the PA that there were tornadoes in the area and everyone should "seek shelter". After several minutes of confusion and rumors, they finally got a TV going in the break room and I could see where the storms were and where they were headed. I decided to make a run for it because they were headed right for the bookstore and, by going home, we'd be avoiding the worst part. So, after a run through the hail (Ouch!) and rain, we got in the car and drove. The rain and hail were so heavy at times I couldn't see the road. But soon we got out of the storm and all was OK. Storm chasing at night is no fun - you can't see anything.After all that there were no confirmed tornadoes - just rotation on the radar, hail about 1.5 cm, LOTS of rain and wind.----John - The Eternal Pessimist.
