    are you new here? we get 50 page threads for flurries in the winter. why would severe weather be any different? 

    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.

    This is reminiscent of the "classic" solid lines of storms that some of us have discussed as being less common than in the 90s and earlier 2000s. 

    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.
