NashSevereWx feed on Twitter to see what was up. They were saying straight-line winds at 80-90 mph which is as strong as a tornado, so I got up to watch the news. It wasn't raining, just windy, and the tornado sirens were going off.
Nate finally got up and I told him to put on some shoes. He looks like he's trying to protect himself in this photo, but he's really just trying to go back to sleep. The storm was moving fast, so we were in the all clear before too long and went back to bed around 3:30. I left for work at 6 and there were some small twigs in the road and everyone had their trash at the curb for pick-up this morning and most of the lids had blown open and the bins were getting rained in. Some of them had fallen over.
The news confirmed a EF2 hit Mt. Juliet just east of Nashville and there was some structural damage done throughout Middle Tennessee. I liked this super warm weather the last few days but it's supposed to get back in the 30s. Crazy weather for January.
Last night Nate had his first Hebrew class of the semester. I stayed home and bothered Otis. :) I crack myself up.
