typical Indiana summer

We got clobbered by the weather in Noble County and around northern Indiana last night: trees and wires down, power outages, some buildings damaged, that kind of thing. Unconfirmed reports of funnel clouds in two neighboring counties -- but everybody always thinks they see a tornado during severe weather. Straight-line winds can cause just as much damage, and in this case they were hard at work. No injuries reported, though.

That may slow my internet time down a bit the next couple of days, but only a bit. Albion itself escaped the worst of the weather -- everything was just to the north or just to the south of us. It's just that I get a lot of my LJ and writing work done during downtimes in dispatch, and we aren't getting a lot of downtime in dispatch, lately!

Glad you're OK, but it's not fair that work is getting in the way of LJ. :D

That's right -- priorities are seriously screwed up. :-)

Goodness, that's some wild weather you're having! Maybe I'll stop grumbling about the so called British Summer

We're used to thunderstorms here -- but this one was a bit more, shall we say, stormy than most! Still no confirmations of tornado touchdowns, though, so it could have been quite a bit worse.

Glad y'all are ok. Thunderstorms are another thing we don't get enough of here (literally and figuratively - I miss them, true, but we're also in a drought, still). However, I don't miss that creepy feeling in the air and that weird color to the sky that signifies tornado weather. A bit scary!

I used to really love thunderstorms. I'm still fascinated by the weather, and I always grab a camera when we go out on storm watch, but as I get older I worry more and more about lives and property and such -- having your own home and your own family will tend to do that.
The problem with thunderstorms for you are those dry ones that go by without dumping any rain; all of the sudden you've got a dozen lightning caused fires, and still no moisture. I don't envy you that.
