Yep here's basically how things went down for me.
Left the building at work @ 4:30 to see huge rain drops falling down (still at a sprinkle level though)
Got in my car and it stayed calm until I got to the free way. Then it just started to rain. No big deal (except Ohio drivers can't drive in the rain)
4:40 I decided it was time to slow down as it was raining pretty heavy.
4:45 I got to my exit ramp. There I really slowed down. Visibility was about 1 foot in front of me (yes, I couldn't even see the hood of my own car clearly)
Took me 10 minutes to get hom from that point as the rain died down, but the issue was there was 6 inches of standing water across the entire road......and we're not even near a flood plain.
Got to my house as everything died down. It stayed that way for about 1.5 hours. Then the rain came back again. As we ate dinner, our entire house shook. I look out the window and see M & M size hail hitting the ground and everything. I go back to eating dinner, then it sounds like every squirrel in the neighborhood is jumping on my roof. I look again and not only is it hailling as much as you'd see snowflakes in a blizzard, but they've grown to about golf size hail. I look for a few minutes at my car just hoping that I don't see the windshield or the sunroof just explode.
Everything dies down after about 1/2 hour, THEN I hear the tornado sirens. They go on for about another 1/2 hour. I made this thread as the sirens started going off.
The beach sounds great this weekend!
Sweet! You and Adam can wear T shirts like mid-pubescent girls!
Actually, no beach this weekend. I have to pressure wash the deck and Amy's going to finish grouting the stones out front on Saturday then we're going to Sunset '06 at Vinoy Park to see Rabbit in the Moon all day/night Sunday.
He should be.
I had him call you from my phone on Sunday as a sneak attack in case you were avoiding him
Wait...maybe you're avoiding both of us...
Nah, I've been sick, haven't talked to anyone, no voice. I think I called back on Tuesday, I shall try again this evening.
