Our city is still cleaning up from two F2 tornados that tore through a week ago yesterday. Now, we're hearing we could get 8-12 inches of snow tonight. Yikes!

If you're interesting in seeing some pictures of storm damage, pick one of the galleries on this page:

I was born in St. Louis and lived in Illinois a lot of my youth. Even with living through Andrew and Wilma down here, I've never seen anything like what tornados do.

Good luck with the snow Doc, wish we could send you some sun.

We missed the tornado weather and now we are suppose to only get 1-3 inches of the snow, so I am thankfull for that. Hope all is well with you, and good luck with the snow. Maybe it'll go farther north and miss you too.

I heard about that tornado outbreak last week. Supposedly it was the worst March tornado outbreak in recorded history. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by them. Let's hope this upcoming tornado season is not too bad for people living in those areas.

My mom actually worked in Taylorville for a few years before retiring to Chatham!

Well, we got nailed by a blizzard, but the snow has started melting. It's still a little icy, but our roads are in good shape. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers!
