storm warning

"The Planets", by Holtz, playing on Pandora right now. Extremely appropriate music: We're under a tornado watch and thunderstorm warning. For those in the area, rotation's being tracked in northern Whitley County. (Yes, the same place where the tornado appears in the opening scene of Storm Chaser.)  The storms are moving northeast; the line itself is tracking south, which means the next incoming storms are headed straight toward where I am in northern Allen County. I'm watching from the fourth floor of the library at Indiana University-Purdue University in Fort Wayne, but will soon be headed toward a lower location.

Lafayette is under a tornado warning; lighting, wind and heavy rain just started here. Emily's in class -- we're both in very sturdy buildings. This is it -- unplugging the computer, now. I'll check back in later.

Yes, we've got thunder rolling around as well. Crazy November weather.

I remember the same thing happened in 2001: I was waiting on a grounded airplane in Indianapolis around the 5th or so as a tornado touched down in northwest Indiana.

Ecchh. Tornados are at the top of the list of things I don't miss about living in AL. Hang in there.

Yes, but in a month this will seem like heaven compared to the cold and snow!

by safe, do you mean stay glued to a window on the fourth floor, watching the cloud patterns? 'Cause if that's what you mean, I stayed safe.
