    Good luck with the clean-up. We are so starved for rain here, and we usually have quite stormy weather. Although, never really under the extreme threats like down your way (tornadoes).

So now I have to park on the street--at a time when lots of construction vehicles on cleanup detail will be going through my neighborhood.

    Sigh...
    Ouch. We got hammered pretty good too south of ya but no damage that I can see. At least at my place.

    A little late, but I just read this article about Jeff Rice. I missed his passing last year. "Rice's death is the last of four that pretty much bring the Kolchak saga to a close. Darren McGavin and Dan Curtis died in 2006, and Richard Matheson in 2013."

    Had at least one tornado tear through here last night about 7:10PM. Maybe a mile or so (KM or 2 LOL) from my house. Wasn't more than a small thunderstorm for me, but quite a bit of damage not too far away.

    This is about a 5 minute drive from my house.

    UPDATE - Environment Canada says 2 touched down. This picture was part of the damage of an EF2, and also an EF1 touched down just outside the city.

    I'm going on vacation on Tuesday and I'm heading for Indiana to visit my older brother first. His house didn't get hit, but several about a mile from him did. Glad to hear you didn't get anything serious.

    I can only access the site via the Tor browser. Not sure what else to try at this point. Very annoying.

    I can access it but I'm not longer receiving email notifications for the threads that I'm subscribed to nor can I upload photos. I believe they switched to a new server and it's causing issues. I asked RF about it but nothing is fixed yet at least on my end.

    How does one get email notification for threads that you're subscribed to? I've been unable to figure this out in the CD forums.

    I was referring to my issues with TDT.org but I'm not having any issues here. I believe in your settings you can select that when you reply in a thread, you're automatically subscribed to it. You can also go through manually and subscribe to threads. You can do that at the top of the page via Thread Tools.

    So, I am on vacation in Pittsburgh, PA. I have just spent 10 1/2 hours in a car having my first expereince at using a navigation device (a Garmin). The next person named Samantha I run into, I'm going to slap her silly and just walk away. I may get into trouble, but I will feel a WHOLE lot better--and ready to spend another 10 1/2 hours with my nav guide travelling back in about a week.

    10 vacation days in Pittsburgh, mostly visiting relatives. But there was one thing that I HAD to do while I was there (who knows if I'm ever I'm going back):

    DSCF5238.JPG

    I've seen them on The Food Network and TV every time a Pittsburgh team is in a championship game. The Primanti's Brothers Pitts-burgher sandwich. A 1lb cheesesteak sandwich with onions, tomatoes (stop signs), large-cut fries and coleslaw on the sandwich. Delicious!!! So good, I had another one the next day--a Hot Sausage (double meat, of course) and Cheese. I had successfully kept my eating under control for the entire time--until my last two days in Pittsburgh. Now I'm 12 lbs heavier.

    But soooo much happier!
