Both of these cells touched down as about 3 miles from us. One damaged a bank roof and the EF 1 significantly damaged 25+ homes. Winds were estimated at 90 mph.
At times, the old tractor and blower seem like better options. Or, sit back with a cup of hot chocolate and watch it melt.
I heard there were some 50 or so Tornados in the South,,,
And you are right about Old Tractor & Blower,,, it started right up and did a fine job moving the Wet/Heave Snow !!!
But the operator needed 2 or 3 Bloody Marys,,, Don't do chocolate !!!
Hope all is well in the South !!!
