  1. And so it begins.... If we can get the snow we got out of last year's winter....there will always be hope!
  2. I lived in Holly Hills for 12 years (sold my house in 2014). My kids grew up in that neighborhood. Most of the neighbors I knew are still there. The pictures are mind boggling. My former neighbor's house had the entire main floor taken off...There are tons of trees in that part of the neighborhood which only added to the destruction. I am thankful that no one I know was killed...my former neighbor believes if it had been two hours later and he had been asleep that he probably would not have survived as his bedroom is gone. First pic is his house; that used to be the front porch...we were at the top of a hill in the subdivision. Somehow my old house had just superficial damage. The house down at the bottom of the hill just a few hundred yards away was also unroofed and hammered by trees.
  3. Fortunately in North Chatt these days. I watched the intense lightning from my back porch which faces east but we probably only had a gust to 45 and I am about a mile northwest of KCHA which had a gust to 59. A lot of coworkers live in that area but so far no one got hurt which is the best news. Dew point rose from 45 at 8am to 67 by 11pm...I don't think I have seen it do that around here before as a preamble to severe weather. Pretty amazing.
  4. Glad to see you are well, dwag....I saw a pic from Grace Academy...some serious damage. I imagine my old house in Holly Hills got whacked based on what I have seen in the media. Edit: added pic
  5. Let's drop the politics and side commentary before I have to start swinging the ax.....we have a forum for that you can go sign up for it. It has no place in here. I remember going to Burial last time I was in Asheville! Good stuff! In the meantime, if someone would start up a Spring Summer Fall type forecast discussion thread....I would be most grateful! I fear I will cause a massive heatwave if I start it....
  6. The weeklies have gone mad the next couple of weeks, also.....
  7. About over here. What an impressive little event. About 3.5” here.
  8. Almost up to two inches now....still more to come.
  9. Score in North Chatt this morning. Getting close to an inch now.
  10. OMG!!!!!! Foul beast! These are useful in pattern discussions and it is the EPS afterall....We only object to the "Look at this 384 hr GFS. Wish this would happen" type silliness.....
  11. It's lovely....just a reminder that fantasy progs go into Banter unless you are supporting some type of theory/forecast....Thanks!
  12. Put a note to the admins to see if it can be recovered....but they could take days to respond....
  13. Bryant, AL in the far NE corner....up on Sand Mountain.
  14. Topic starter must have deleted it. I don't have any control over that unfortunately......smh
