I don't know whether it was headed to do plowing, but I saw a road grader go by yesterday on an already-plowed road. I reckon if it was headed to move snow, that snow was going to move. They'd probably called out anything that could serve as a plow.

It was below zero F (-17.8 C) again this morning. This cold has really gotten old. But the temperature is starting to rise a bit. It might get up to 15 F (-9.4 C) today, and stay above 10 F (-6.7 C) tonight. It might get up to 23 F (-5 C) on Saturday for the first time in two weeks, and above freezing on Sunday!

This could be a deadly day for those living in the Southeast U.S. A major tornado outbreak is expected in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama. The NWS indicates large, long-track tornado's are very likely in the area. EF2 and stronger. All of this moves east for Thursday.

Not a good day to be stuck in Memphis. Or Mobile. Someone's going to have the Birmingham Blues.

I was in Memphis when Hurricane Steve Harvey caused the tornado threat to be bad enough that the sirens went off.

The area of greatest concern has been extended east into Georgia. Late winter outbreaks like this can be the worst.

The area where I am living now was hard-hit on April 3,1974. It is all residential now, but not nearly as much back then. The house one of my brothers lived in was destroyed. The walls were pulled out and the roof dropped straight down. My father had to stop on his way home from work and take shelter because it became so dark he could not see to drive. A group of people, including myself, watched from the parking lot of a Sunoco station about two miles to the south. The sun was shining and their was just a light breeze. That was a rough day for everyone from the Deep South all the way north to The Great Lakes. There were 9 fatalities in the county I live in.

April 3, 1974. Hmm... [Google Google]

Wow. One tornado that day I still remember seeing covered on the news was the one that went through Xenia, Ohio. I remember an image, or perhaps video, of the funnel. It was grainy B&W but you could see that the tornado was a monster. It killed over 30 people. The destruction was appalling.

In the days following, embroidered cloth napkins from a hotel in Brandenburg, KY, were found in Xenia, OH. Hanover College, a few miles west of where I live, had century-old trees twisted apart or pulled entirely out of the ground. Many campus buildings were severely damaged. The same storm cell which caused the damage to Brandenburg came through my county, and went on to Xenia. Witnesses in Xenia reported seeing the large funnel with many smaller funnels rotating around it like a carnival carousel.

The image below was taken in Moundville, Alabama, this morning. The Atlantic Coast states are on alert for later today.

With all the severe weather today and yesterday, I happened to check: March 18, 1925 was the day of the Tri-state Tornado.

It's currently raining a little bit in Bimshire.

In a month or so it will warm up enough to be tolerable.
