With the awful weather that we’ve been having in the middle of the country I hope all of you are doing alright. I live in Southeast Missouri just across the Mississippi from Southern Illinois. We had two radar confirmed tornadoes about 70 miles west of us, two in Southern Illinois and one or two in Western Kentucky tonight. A town about 25 miles south of us had damage early this morning. They aren’t saying if it was a tornado or high winds. So far I’ve not heard of any one hurt so we are doing better than other locations.

Stay safe, nice to meet you.
It looks like the storms for the most part will miss the East Tennessee area. Still there will be trees down and such, but hopefully no spinning weather or hail. Good to have a nice garage or cover.

Nice looking Spitfire. I’ve always liked Triumphs but have only had MGs. My Midget is a 1969 mkIII.

Thank you for thinking about me.  Fortunately, my part of Texas is not being hit with bad weather, just hot and dry.  100 today and for the next few days.

When I lived in Missiouri, natives who knew I had lived in California wondered how I could not be constantly worried about earthquakes, yet were blasé about tornadoes, which kill more people and in a given year cause as much or more damage than earthquakes in the U.S.
