    Those storms were pretty bad last weekend. Fortunately we were fine here in Charleston, but a tornado touched down about 20 miles north of here and did a lot of damage.

    Where Matt lives in North Carolina, it was much, much worse. They don't usually get tornadoes there, and to get so many of them (particularly when they stayed on the ground for so long) was quite exceptional. One of the storms was on the ground for nearly 80 miles. (!)

    There was a Lowe's hardware and home improvement store that got completely destroyed in NC (the roof was partially torn off, and the rest caved in on top of the people inside). Fortunately, no one was killed there, but there have been over 40 deaths associated with this storm system. No shit - it was (and still is) a very big deal.

    Glad to hear you made it through OK Matt. I checked with Jeff, and he's OK too, but that Lowes Store that got hammered is roughly in the middle between you two. Looks like you both managed to just barely dodge a bad situation!

    I got some debris in my yard but that's about it. My brothers house was damaged but not destroyed. I actually missed the whole thing and didn't learn about it until my wife told me about it when I got back from Chicago.
