    Not unheard of, but it is rare to see a multiple twister outbreak like we did Monday. I think the topography (mountains to the west, ocean to the east) isn't so favorable for the types of storms that spawn tornadoes. Funny thing, none of the super-cells had cloud tops much higher than 20,000 - 30,000 feet. It was a combination of extreme moisture and turbulence from the remnants of Florence. Humidity was very high all day Monday, like pea soup. That, we have lots of in the summer. Mold counts here go higher than the scale the meteorologists use to measure them!

    Spectacular shit. Too bad people sometimes have to get hurt by it.

    Well, the hurricane finally reaches us last week. Of course it was no longer a hurricane nor a tropical storm. And most of the remaining clouds were well to the west giving us a little rain and a couple thundershowers.

    Just dandy, several tornado warnings nearby. Virginia must be part of tornado alley!

    Part of the new reality.
    It's only because DC sucks so bad, it draws the tornadoes in. Now, the trick is to focus them a little north of you....

    We have a week of 70's in store with no rain. Weird for the PNW in October...

    But I'll take it! I've got stuff to do outdoors that rain makes into a chore.

    In VA, 7 tornadoes, 5 deaths, 534,000 without power as of this morning. My power just came back on... 23-1/2 hours after it went off. Great time to be waiting on a part for the generator.

    We literally got a 14 hour rain, mild. Little wind yet a bunch of people still lost power. Guess because the ground is saturated.
    We were definitely of the weak side of this one the whole time.
