Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
The storm that has been causing havoc throughout the south made for a tense morning and afternoon - the weather radio was blaring alert after alert as the squall line moved through - and a boring 10 minutes huddled in the hallway during a warning for a tornado that missed me by a good 6 miles. Eastern North Carolina is getting battered right now. Reports are still preliminary but sounds like there will be some significant damage here and there from Raleigh east.

It was really quite something. The fastest moving and most intense squall line I've experienced since moving to NC 26 years ago. I'm fine.   Got 1 3/4 inches of rain in one 15 minute period, and then the whole thing had moved on.
