Beware the purple!*


In acknowledgement of the many tornado watches and general bad weather, the network stations stayed on local reporting for hours during the late afternoon/early evening. Right here, we got a bit of hard rain, maybe momentary hail, and lots of dramatic skies. Basically, the scary stuff was around us, rather than over us.

Fine with me!

* The weather maps broadcast by the station we watched most of the time displayed purple dots, or sometimes blotches, which we were told was where hail was falling.

PS Normally I like purple!

    One of those weather dudes points to the radar map and says “when green meets red, get under the bed.” Once I heard that, I muted the sound. Had all I needed to know to escape unscathed.
