Nothing here in fuquay...but I know some areas did get some wind damage. Even Greg Fishel did not know what to say about some of these tornado warnings...he could not see anything! Lol...anyway...this message board is dead and today proved it. No help from anyone. Could be why it never caught on. Very disappointing. (Not talking about u tyler) but the other few...yes.

I have my doubts, but maybe.Newport's summary of the day lists all of their local storm reports, but as of tonight does not mention any tornadoes at all.The advance billing this event received from weather officials was never close to the (accurate) hype that April 16, 2011 got. It was enough to close the schools, but not too over the top, I guess. None of the indices were ever as extreme as the 2011 event.So some of you cats who were imagining we'd get about a thousand 2-mile-wide F5s need to switch to decaf. Just sayin'.

I'll tell ya why ... because I arrived at the Greenville Veterans Health Center about 20 minutes ahead of a 2pm appointment and was promptly whisked into one of several jam-packed interior rooms. I was told the building was on lock-down and we were to "shelter in place." Course I knew why but wasn't really expecting it. Upon arrival it was windy and rainy but I saw nothing on radar when I left home that would have concerned me other than a big storm well to our southwest. I guess that storm reached the county line just before I entered the building and being a government bureaucracy, we had to lock-down from the moment a warning was issued until the exact moment it expired ... and trust me, it was a long time. Being I didn't have access to radar my judgement is of course limited but I'd wager a hefty sum we were still crammed in that room until well after any threat was long gone. Oh well, so be it.

But I can think of many winters where by Feb 15th those worthless Bradford pears had bloomed. Or maybe they don't exist anymore....
