  1. The Stafford hook is one of the best hooks I’ve seen in my area. Surprised they didn’t just pull the trigger on a TW.
  2. Invest Isaias showing us his best and brightest!
  3. Surprised this didn’t at least get one of those “Tornado possible” tags at the end of the STW.
  4. Grazulis levels of tornado history and World Almanac levels of geography knowledge!
  5. When was the last time an outlook discussion used the term "Strong, long-track tornadoes" for an area that included Virginia?
  6. I'm super excited for the annual finger-wagging "How can you hope for destruction?" bitchfest that seems to finally be brewing in the main thread.

  8. If it's really still on the ground, it's gotta be one of the longer track tornadoes in the Fredericksburg vicinity that I can remember. It has maintained a surprisingly consistent TVS.

  10. It's much easier to maintain low expectations about severe around here. I try to steer clear of the place around winter because it's harder not to get your hopes up (plus it's not as fun without DT's rants).
  11. I know, I think I'm just noticing the contrast between this thread and the midwest/ohio valley threads where they've been having tornado outbreaks with about 20 people in the thread lol.
  12. Am I right in my impression that this level of activity wasn't anticipated? It was only an ENH day, right?
  13. Been a little bit more T&L with this one than usual.
  14. Really impressive downpour here. Wind was nothing special, although it still knocked the power out for a few minutes lmao. Sun is already peeking back out. It was cute!
  15. I always just thought I was crazy for thinking this. It’s so rare that we get these classic, quick squall lines anymore, yet I remember them being a sort of regular occurrence when I was a kid.
  16. It’s already breezy and the sky has that gross white haze. Definitely seems like the kind of day we get these nasty lines.
