Had two tornados come through the area, one traveling through the northern part of the county and one south. The northern one was worse. We were watching on TV and the hook signature of the southern tornado passed close to where I keep the Airstream stored. Then it continued east towards us. When they showed the path of the storm within 3 miles of our home, we went to the basement. Thankfully it stayed south and fell apart as it headed into Illinois.

The weather folks started broadcasting live just after six. They are still going hot and heavy since the northern storm held together and Illinois is feeling the storm at this point. Lots of tornados warnings with various degrees of damage in Illinois.

It has been quite the year for storms.

I've been thinkin' we need one of those old fashioned storm cellars dug into the ground.

Next weekend is going to be better.

Happenings in Le Roy, IL near Moraine View

Fun weekend for the community of Le Roy, IL the same weekend as our rally. Here's a link to a website with flyers and more info: City of Le Roy

Activities include a bbq competition, car/tractor/hot rod show with a cruise-in from Le Roy to Bloomington, a flea market, and the annual American Legion breakfast.

Le Roy is about 6 miles or a 10 minute drive from Moraine View State Park.

See you in a few days!

We live in just the right spot! The worst of the storms seem to always go to the north or south of us. In 27 years we've just lost a few tree limbs.

Well the morning comes and the pictures come in. North county took a beating and a big RV dealer took some major damage. He had privacy fencing around property and some of that fencing got driven through the walls of a 5th wheel and motor home on the lot. Other vehicles on the lot were slid around.

Apparently the weather bureau noted 4 tornadoes that touched down in metropolitan area. Thankfully no losses of life and the damaged areas are narrow in scope, with the worst damage in general in the north St. Louis County area.

Some homes were severely flattened, with one home, two story 6,000 sq ft. having its entire roof lifted off. Needless to say the TV news folks were all out there trying to get their scoop. One of the most bonehead questions asked by one of them was to the owner of the house with no roof. It's raining and the owner is walking her through the house showing the damage. Water pouring in all over. She then asks him the question "Do you think your home is in livable condition?" The look he gave her was priceless.

We are fine with no damage and the Airstream was buttoned up in its inside storage. Glad I hadn't brought it home yet. Tomorrow with sunny skies forecast is the day for it to come home for prep.

Looks like for those arriving early, Thursday will be the worst day of the weekend. If it's really ugly I might forgo getting there on that day and come early Friday instead. We will see. No use to fighting the rain to get there and then setting up and sitting all day in it.

Jack

He's not judging this one. He will probably go by and visit the teams on Friday.

Great to hear no one in St Louis area had any WX problems. See they got hit again in OK. Unfortunately I had a very localized storm here this morning in my computer and it was fatal. I'm now in the process of setting up a new one and trying to figure out Windows 8. See everyone next week if I don't have a stroke.

We had a Saturday morning potluck breakfast last year, part of the 10-year anniversary. It has not been an annual event, and would be up to JC.

I'm neutral on it. Would happily contribute but not homemade pancakes for 45 or whatever it was we had last year. That was a special celebratory and honorary effort, for JC.

When we don't have a rally breakfast planned for Saturday morning, Laird and I like to go into Le Roy for the American Legion breakfast. Helps support the local community and local American Legion Chapter.

Silverflash told us about the annual Legion breakfast a few years ago at an earlier rally.
