Typical Indiana Good Friday Weather...Tornados!

Well, we had an interesting night tonight! Huge hail and high winds all around us! Tornado warnings and the tornado sirens were going off. As you've seen, I drive a Lumina Van, and it has a 12 square foot windshield, so I moved the van to the parking garage on Wabash Landing. This is a SECURE parking garage, designed to withstand wind speeds of 400 mph, and even an earthquake. Betcha didn't know that Lafayette, Indiana is an earthquake zone, by the way, we have a subfault running right under town connecting with the New Madrid Fault, so that's why the seismic standard!

Well, the largest hail was just to our north, with BASEBALL sized hail. There were a total of 5 funnel cloud sightings around us as well! The images aren't of the storms to hit here, they are stock footage from weatherstock.com. This is the type of storms we had, however

NO sense hiding outside -- when you can be in the basement (with the beer) avoiding the softball sized hail.

Did I mention tornado insanity

Yeah, I know what you mean, Shawn! I picked that parking garage because there is an underground Beer House next door, a great microbrewery! You caught me! ::GRIN::
