I saw these colorful blobs this morning. Please note the iridescent blob behind “Roanoke.” The meteorologist interpreted this as a possible tornado touching down, or one forming/ready to do so. In short, scariness.
By the way, the Roanoke is not in Virginia, and the Texas is not that huge state. However, that slanting red line between the two is the state line between Alabama and Georgia.
So this worrisome storm-tracker radar is for the area southwest of us. At the time, the worst of it was moving northeast, toward us, yet the scary blob actually never nailed us. Instead, we received more peripheral storminess than was predicted this morning.
