    Some storm last night, uh? Tell your "storm story" here!

    I was at my aunt's house with my brother, my sister, and my cousins, and I noticed on the way over there, the conditions: big, billowy clouds, steamy afternoon, it all fits!

    About six or seven, it got darker and darker. I knew it was gonna rain, so I unplugged my laptop. I thought I could hear a siren, and I tried to quiet my siblings. But, seeing as they're 11 and 9, it was impossible.

    A few minutes later, a tornado warning was issued, and we all mobilized. We went outside to watch the show. Pretty cool. Though no tornaodes came through my area, it was pretty exciting.

    So yeah, what's your storm story?

    I live in the DFW area- Frisco/Plano border to be exact.

    My friend and I got home from softball and saw the storm coming. We decided we would not get stuck at home without any beer. We jumped in the car and put the pedal to the metal. We ran inside, grabbed the beer, and ran to a register. We were walking out with a smile when the manager stopped us and said, "Everyone to the back of the store. There is a funnel cloud outside." So, with looks of distraught on our faces, we went to the restroom and proceeded to consume our beer. We drank two each before we got word we were free to go.

    While I'm not in Texas, it almost stormed yesterday here in Georgia. Today, there's a 40% chance of thunderstorms. It's pretty, hot & the heat seems to be generating alot of storm systems. nothing's happened yet, though. It's currently still calm. Not even raining.
