Just wanted to make sure all our members are safe. I keep hearing about all the tornadoes and horrific weather of recent. Did all make it out ok?

Beau, how close where the twisters to you?

I drove through those areas over the weekend. It was a horrible site. Lucky for us it missed us by about 10 miles.

We are OK, thanks for asking. Wife was a bit nervous there for a while. We just had a bunch of wind and rain. I didn't notice any hail at our house.
The closest tornado touchdown was in Morrison, TN which is about 30 minutes away.
Gallatin, TN (outside of Nashville) got hit the worst.

It also looked like Jeremy was getting hit pretty hard.

Glad to hear you are safe Beau! I was thinking of you when the storms hit and figured when I saw you posting all most be ok. Sounds like some nasty storms made it down your way! :eek:

We were at Lake Cumberland this past weekend. We were in b/w sets when we started hearing rumbling in the distance. Pulled off the water and got everything put away just in time. Then we headed to Lee's Ford Marina for some margaritas ( :D ). On the way there the weather got pretty nasty. Lighting REAL close, wind, and deluge of rain. The waitress and CNN "Situation Room" told us about the severity of the weather.
Hope all are well!

Below is a picture of the weather a few hours before we pulled off the water...

Here's what it looked like a couple hours later, just before we pulled off the water. Needless to say it got much worse, but nowhere near what others went thru I'm sure.

I'd like to think I would have had time. But we didn't. The days filled up so fast. We drove from the southern tip of Florida back here. So yes we flew by. I did stop in at the Nat'l Corvette museum. I was invited by several members of team talk to stop in, we just ran out of time because we stayed so long down there. Then with the storms through a whole new loop in the drive time.

Oh, and I don't have your number.... Minor detail.......

You are kidding me!?! Small world. Yeah, we were at the bar Friday night. We almost stayed at Lee's Ford over the weekend but a friend's house opened up. I'll make sure to PM you anytime we're heading that way!

Goodlettsville was the town we drove through that got hit HARD. It was probably the worst I have ever seen in person.

The guy that lived in the house was in the basement at the time. You can now stand in the basement and see out the roof. He luckily was uninjured.

Wow! We've been pretty fortunate in this section of Texas. Just lots of rain and some wind. Stay safe folks.
