  1. With our June 10th storm, our EMA Facebook page lit up with people wondering what the low roar was that they heard as the storm approached. It was a localized event in a small town (Andrews, IN). While doing damage assessments, several residents also commented on it and asked if it was a tornado due to the roar. I've only heard it a couple of times in my life from straight-line winds. Eerie stuff.
  2. We've had 2 in the past 7 days and 4 in the past 3 1/2 weeks.
  3. We got dumped on this afternoon. I caught 2.21" in 45 minutes, approaching 2.5" for the day. Street flooding galore. A buddy said his weather station recorded a 5.17" rainfall rate at the peak of the storm.
  4. Jack, I'm glad to see that you are recovering. I was really concerned when you quit posting, I just knew something was terribly wrong. What a horrible nightmare for you. Your story should be told to every anti-masker. As you said, you really don't deserve what happened to you. Prayers for a full recovery.
  5. I know that this is not a political thread, but alarms should be raised with the White House's order that the Corona data sent by hospitals go to them rather than the CDC. Months before an election and a political entity is trying direct the conversation. Just wow. How transparent is this ploy? How are Americans supposed to be honestly informed if the narrative is controlled by a politician.? https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/14/us/politics/trump-cdc-coronavirus.html?campaign_id=9&emc=edit_nn_20200715&instance_id=20323&nl=the-morning&regi_id=132190987&segment_id=33439&te=1&user_id=6c0c6198ea2aad1257a6d55b6ad8e814 Sorry for the political rant. Now back to your regularly scheduled program.
  6. Yep, we're toast here. We've had over and inch and a half in the past 24 hrs and expecting more storms off and on through the end of the week. Dry ground feedback cancel.
  7. We had a storm drop a microburst right over I 69 that flipped a semi tanker and took down some trees and interstate signs. The tanker was hauling glycerin, which didn't spill, although if it did, the firefighters on scene could have moisturized their hands.
  8. Congratulations on your retirement, but do people in your profession really ever retire? I'm glad that you have the opportunity to be close to your family.
  9. I'm already seeing some pissed off cumulus this morning, with other storms already formed along the old boundary in Indiana. They are nearly stationary and someone is going to get dumped on while most just bake. Gotta love midsummer Midwest weather.
  10. All of this talk about politics and economy. Here is the real bottom line: People Wear your mask I'll just leave these right here. Source: Johns Hopkins University
  11. Yes, although it is only at the Optum testing sites and it is free even though they are a private company. There are 83 Optum sites throughout the state. However, the other 116 hospital-run sites still have stipulations such as health-care worker, symptomatic, etc. From the ISDH website, "Anyone who lives or works in Indiana can be tested at an Optum site."
  12. Testing being open for anyone who wants it beginning last week is probably the reason for the high number of tests. My wife got one Wednesday and got the results back on Friday (negative).
