Today's Storm Front In Missouri

Post by Apoptosis » Thu Jun 22, 2006 3:23 pm

I was doing e-mails when I looked out side and saw this coming right for my house...

All was calm, but as soon as the line got this close the wind gust came and was strong!

They rolled through here as well (south of Nate), but really wasn't all that bad really, but it sure looked impressive before it started.

Yeah, I left the office early yesterday to stop by one of our remote locations so I could check on a malfunctioning KVM switch. As I got there (St. Charles) I could see that thing rolling in overhead.

Talk about scary looking.....

Think a fair amount of Nates neighbors are in some form of construction.
