It felt like Florida humidity this evening and it was like somebody lit a match and the atmosphere ignited in an instant. Notice the explosion of storms between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. We knew there were no guarantees in this set-up. The amazing part was that we had no storm damage here at home and only dime size hail reported in Fowler. We are certainly counting our blessings, but beware of flooding today. Not far from home they were not as lucky as you see below.
My daughter took this picture using her cell phone, the evening of June 3rd 2008 while on duty at Camp Atterbury Indiana. Her platoon is currently serving their 2 week summer training. She had called me, her mother to state that she was ok, and that the men's barracks (next to the women's barracks, where she and fellow guards were) had been hit by the tornado in the picture. She also stated that there were no injuries, that everyone was well.

Be careful of flooding this morning and I do think we could easily see another 1 to 2 inches of rain on top the inch of rain we have had at WLFI. We could still be rocked with a strong storm this morning with the warm front in our vicinity. We may get a nice break in the action by later this evening through much of Friday. Talk to you soon and Kelly has you covered. She is sending me home!! What day is it?
