Well that was a lovely wake-up call!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
DH and I were awoken at seven o'clock this morning to the sound of tornado sirens going off!! There was a tornado spotted about 10 miles from here, we weren't in any real danger at that time, but it sure gave us a spook! The weather guy said to be prepared, there are supposed to be tornados, and severe storms here until this time tomorrow. As he put it "this is just round one". Great.

We were supposed to go to the demolition derby at the fair tonight, but it dosen't look like we'll get to go now. I guess we'll just spend this Friday night at home watching the weather!

We saw the tornadic activity coming at us on radar, but we didn't even get a drop of rain in our corner of the state (at least not at our house). Maybe tomorrow, but that means a wet Hogs game...

I wish I could!! I had to put the trash out this morning and politely asked DH if he could turn off the downpour for a minute while I did, but he just looked at me funny! He can fix everything else...

It looks like all heck is about to break loose in Northwest Arkansas within the next hours or so, so I guess it'll hit you guys by midnight. Something about two fronts converging and a dryline...

I feel ya! We have tornado watches at the moment all over my area- which always wind up turining into tornado warnings ....it so happened to fall on the same day that Garden Ridge is having a HUGE sale! UHHH....lol so i'm deciding between candle shopping and tornado watches at the moment lol....If it was a warning- there wouldn't be an option! I'd be in the bathroom with the furbabies....but since it's a watch.....those candles would sure come in handy if the power goes out!!! . I'm aweful lol!!! I even started a thread on this in The cat lounge lol....I hope your bad weather goes away soon!!! What part of Arkanasas are you in!!! You Arkansas folks sent all the bad weather east to Memphis! Uhh! you meanie lol

I'm in the NE corner, Jonesboro area and Annasmom is in the NW corner!
post #14 of 29
Ok...maybe not! I just read all of the latests posts....the tornadic activity seems to be picking up in Arkansas pretty badly...which means it will most likely make it's way east and into the Memphis areas soon. I think i'm going to run out to the store really fast before it gets worse. Our watch right now is set to expire at 7....but that will likely be extended should the weather pick up! Stay safe you guys in Arkansas!!!!!!

Gosh, safe safe everyone.
We had a tiny bit of an ex hurricane hit the UK, and all we had were some serious winds up north and lots of rain all over. That was enough for us, but I really feel for you guys
post #16 of 29
Stay safe in ARK!!!! It's starting to look bad in Memphis and the storm hasn't even started yet, so I know it's getting ya'll first. Be careful!

It looks like the worse of this system is going to miss memphis right now. Its all moving north east. We just got it pretty bad here, more tornado warnings. We almost saw a funnel cloud form, but it fizzled out thank goodnesss. Definately keep an eye to the sky tonight!
post #18 of 29
I hope it starts to die down some more where you are! It still looks nasty outside, but I just watched the news a second ago, and even though there's still a watch out for my area, it doesn't look like anything will hit! I'm keeping my fingers crossed . Stay safe!

Here in Bella Vista there hasn't been a drop of rain. I know Springdale and Fayetteville were getting hammered a little bit ago. It looks like those of us in extreme NWA might have dodged a bullet. After March's tornado narrowly missed us (we saw it coming towards us, then it jumped over) in Bentonville, I am glad we moved to the hills!

Maddensmom and StarryEyedTiger and anyone else in the path of these storms, stay safe tonight.

We're under a tornado warning again, its the fourth one today, and its not going to be the last. I'm going to put the babies in the bathroom, I think we're pretty safe, but just to be sure. You're lucky all this missed you annasmom. I don't think we've ever had so many tornado warnings in one day, this is crazy!!

We have a massive storm brewing now. It looks like something out of the movies. No rain as of yet, but I just heard that the entire Springdale and Bentonville football teams and band are huddled in the Springdale fieldhouse because of a tornado warning. We can't get a hold of DH's parents in Springdale, so we're pretty worried. Its going to be a long night. Usually tornados don't hit Bella Vista because of the hills, but you never know. We have no interior bathroom. I guess we'll huddle in the utility room if we have to...

How are things there now? I see there is a good sized system over in your area. We've still got storms brewing here and our tornadoe watch has been extended until 2 am and they are expecting more of the same for tomorrow. I hope your in-laws are safe and sound. My mom's in Randolph County and their getting it worse than we are here in Lawrence, and their powers going in and out, so there have been times tonight I haven't been able to check in on her. Its un-nerving.

Finally got in touch with the in-laws. They are fine. Storm has knocked out power to alot of Springdale. Someone has died from a lightning strike in NWA..on the lake in Prairie Grove.

Still no rain, but its coming. The lightning is freaky right now.

It nice to have someone "local" in times like these.

I know what you mean about the freaky lightning, it almost looks like the northern lights here. Constant lightning. Very disturbing.

Your right it's good to have someone to talk to when things like this are going on.

Its finally raining now...

Off the subject, but are you coming to any games on the Hill this season? It would be nice to meet you. We tailgate with http://www.hogville.net. Usually we have the food catered. Its a great site, check it out.

I don't know if we'll make it to any of the games this year or not. Usually DH is so busy during this time of year that we end up just watching them on TV instead. If we get some work over that way, we'll definately do our best to make it to at least one home game this season. When you own your own business its just so hard to gauge when you'll be able to take off or not. If we do get to make it I'll be sure to let you know! It would be awesome to get to meet!

It would be fun. The last person I expected to meet on a cat site was a fellow Razorback!
