    Anyone have any storm stories they want to share?

    That was a hell of a storm this morning. I fell asleep kinda early (a little after 11:00) and woke up early this morning from all the thunder. The lightning dang near lit my whole room up a few times. One of my windows was open, so the rainfall was loud as heck. I got out of bed, took the fan and the screen out of my window, and closed it.

    I took off my jeans and went to sleep in my pants that sleep in. When I woke up at about 9:00am, I thought it was all a dream. Looking out the window, I noticed that there was a lot less rain than I'd expected, so I still thought it was a dream. Then, I looked at my window... the fan and screen were out and it was closed. I looked at my clothes... I was wearing my sleeping pants...:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    A power-cutting storm came through St. Louis on July 19, 2006. For some reason, a derecho turned southward into St. Louis and hit every city in St. Louis Metro. 2 tornadoes were reported in Festus and St. Louis. It was characterized as the worst storm ever to hit St. Louis.

    Back in February of this year, on Valentine's Day, there was a huge snow storm. I mean HUGE. The snow was so deep that when me and my little sister went out to play in it, we couldn't open the front door, and the snow was piled up so high on the front steps you could just sled right down. There was no school for three days, which (of course) I was happy about. Only thing was, it took FOREVER for all that snow to melt, and there was slush everywhere, and you couldn't step in the grass without your shoes getting all muddy.

    In 1997, it started out as a rainy day. rained a lot then at around 2:00 it got worse, it became very heavy and bad lightning. infact it got so bad that our house was hit 3 times and was accompanied by a snapping noise in some electrical outlets, now hearing something like that at that age freaked me out. but thanks to a good electrical grounding system, the house (thankfully) and everything electrical was not damaged. Then at 4:00 the day changed completely. the rain stopped and all the cloud cover went completely away and outside it suddenly became a bright sunny late summer afternoon and went in our pool with some neighborhood friends. a very GOOD ending after a storm.

    When I lived in Phoenix a couple of years ago, there was a HUGE storm at our house. Me and my mom just couldn't take it because it was so hot in our house! Yards across the neighborhood were like lakes, some trees were knocked down, and the power was out throughout most of the metro area!That was the longest, most miserable night in my life! But we both went to Denny's the next morning!

    Here in Tucson (It's been a little over a year since I first moved here! ), there have been a few large storms here and there due to the monsoon season, which have been responsible for damaging some homes and turning the street near us into a river, but luckily, it has neither damaged our house nor caused a power outage! The weather right now is mostly cloudy, but that may soon change come evening! :eek:

    In April 2004, my town was hit by a tornado. It had been storming all day, and when we heard the tornado alarm at 7 PM, my parents and I went to our basement to wait until the coast was clear.

    Our house was okay, but we found out that the tornado went by our house through our backyard - it was mere inches from destroying our house!! :eek:

    It did destroy part of our fence, but we felt very lucky that night.

    Unfortunately, the apartment building next door was not as lucky. Their roof was blown off (it was higher up than ours, that's probably why), which was very sad.

    Some of the historic homes in my town also had their roofs blown off. Just south of our town in Utica there was also a really bad tornado which destroyed a tavern and killed three people.

    In 1990, Plainfield, IL got hit by a really bad tornado that destroyed the high school. Our town also was affected by it, and I remember it well.

    About 2 weeks ago, there was this HUGE storm in my neck of the woods.

    I woke up at around 5 a.m. to LOUD thunderclaps and bright-as-day lightning. I had no idea what was going on at first...but it was pouring. The thunder was so loud, the floor was shaking, lol. And the lightning was really close. I thought I was gonna die!

    I live in Maine and we had a horrible storm this past weekend...there were even tornado warnings. We got a ton of rain, trees were knocked down, and we went without power for 2 1/2 days. haha...thats the longest Ive ever been without power...but it came back at 1 oclock this morning. I will never take electricity for granted again!

    Theres also been several bad blizzards over the years..I remember a big ice storm a few years ago where tons of people lost power. Just last year there was a bad one and it was scary because I didnt have a car and was living at college, and had to rely on busses so I didnt even know if Id get home! But yea, there have been a few pretty severe storms up here.

    I evacuated to my uncle Carlos' house in San Antonio during a bad storm while my dad is away. The next time I find a bad storm coming to Santa Fe, I'd probably evacuate with some of my girl stuff (including American Girl 300 Wishes) and head to Valley Mills.
