Yesterday night in my little village of Howard we had some excitement! A tornado warning/watch thingy. Only bad thing about these storms is the damage they cause and injuries. That part I dislike, but something about mother nature just flexing it's power really grabs my amusement.

My oldest daughter is without power in her new home. My youngest daughters mother is without power. And that's right, I still got power and the internets!

Weather is a powerful thing.

9 years ago a tornado went through my old home town and did a lot of damage. My wife was on the expressway about 10-15 miles away and could hardly keep the car on the road. She found out the tornado was heading her way about 10 minutes later. By then she was far enough north that she was no longer in the path. I have a cousin who lives in the town. The tornado did damage west of her, bounced off the ground and landed a block away and leveled about 100 homes.

In 2015 one passed roughly 500 feet to the west of my Mom's home. I had been over to check on her and crossed over what would become the tornado's path 20 minutes before it got there. It was a half mile long. It would grow to be a full mile before it dissipated.

Last Monday night we had golf ball size hail here.
Last night was bad, but not as bad as it was Monday.
Many years ago I was in a tornado. My brother in law and I were in his car, trying to get to cover. I opened the passenger door, and as I did it was like a 300 pound lineman tried to shut it on me. I barely got out, the tornado sirens went off, and my BIL yelled "run for the house!!!"
As I was about 20 feet from the door, the neighbor lady yelled " I can't find my little girl!!!' so we made a quick decision and took off for her backyard. There we found the little girl, and got in the house and down stairs just in time. It went right over us without touching down. But it knocked out power and some trees. But we were okay.

I love storms. And my bucket list has being able to someday go with storm chasers to get film of tornadoes. I probably will never get to do it, but I wish I could!

go.pack.go. (14-Aug) : Thanks for the updates. I kept looking for him
beast (14-Aug) : He said 1,000s, and I think someone needs to explain it, just like they had to explain dime defenses to him... if he's had 1,000 then he had more from drinking and pills than football
packerfanwayoutwest (14-Aug) : #4 said he has had 100's of concussions
beast (13-Aug) : Some have suggested it's not the first concussion that gets you, it's the second one, when your head hasn't fully healed from the first one
beast (13-Aug) : Wyatt was evaluated for concussion the practice before (or something), he passed the concussion test, but they decided to sit him as preventative measures anyways.
Mucky Tundra (13-Aug) : gpg, Wyatt was inactive
go.pack.go. (13-Aug) : Did Davante Wyatt play last night?

Mucky Tundra (13-Aug) : @ByRyanWood Matt LaFleur on Amari Rodgers’ 50-yard kickoff return: “I think the hardest hit came when he got to the sideline and Rashan Gary knocked him on his butt.”
wpr (13-Aug) : I hope yoop has his flag flying.
buckeyepackfan (12-Aug) : GAMENIGHT! Preseason Style! GO! Pack! GO! STAY HEALTHY!

Zero2Cool (10-Aug) : David Bakhtiari, Elgton Jenkins "have a shot" at playing early in season.
Mucky Tundra (10-Aug) : The Bears that is. I'm not sure how much lower it can go
Mucky Tundra (10-Aug) : I mean, their roster is already pretty thin.
Zero2Cool (10-Aug) : Matt LaFleur said he was probably pretty hard on Dexter Williams when he was here in Green Bay to get the best out of him, but it’s refreshing to see how much he has matured.
wpr (10-Aug) : It's not that the bares don't value ILB, it's that they are throwing the season to get a better position in the draft
Zero2Cool (10-Aug) : Former Packer RB Dexter Williams is signing back with the Packers
Mucky Tundra (10-Aug) : *ILB/MLB
Mucky Tundra (10-Aug) : Interesting to see the Bears pinch pennies with Smith since as a franchise they seem to prioritize the ILB spot
Cheesey (9-Aug) : The way they are taking advantage is, they want him to play for the Bears!🤪
go.pack.go. (9-Aug) : Trade***
go.pack.go. (9-Aug) : Roquan Smith wants a read from the bears. Says they’re trying to take advantage of him in contract talks

Zero2Cool (5-Aug) : I just love that coach is like, JUGs is gone, get new one
beast (5-Aug) : Also I wonder what was wrong or happening with the current jugs machines and is this a new issue? Or are they trying to do something new with them and it's just not working?
beast (5-Aug) : I wonder how his wife feels about him be so picky about jugs...
