This is the fourth night in a row we are having storms and are under a tornado watch. To say it's wearing thin on me would be an understatement at this point! I have had the same small emergency bag packed since Thursday and tonight has been the worst for thunderstorms so far. We are finally getting some much needed rain, but we could do without the 50+mph straight line winds and all the lightening. 12 tornadoes have touched down in Oklahoma in the past 48 hours!
If you're in the UK reading this, trust me you have no idea what a severe thunderstorm is like unless you have ever visited the US Plains! The lightening in the UK is pathetic by comparison, but the thunderstorms do not frighten me and I often go out to watch the show, it's just the tornado threat that makes me nervous.
This is the worst continuous spell of storms we have experienced since I arrived here in 2005. I am so ready for it to be over, but looking at the radar of Texas where our weather comes from usually, it's going to be another noisy night.
Already forecasting the same risks for tomorrow, deep joy!
