Hot in the South; Tornadoes in the Midwest

While we are enjoying sauna-like conditions here in the sunny South, our friends and neighbors in the Chicagoland area are photographing tornadoes. Sunday evening a small twister struck a Chicago suburb, Romeoville. WGN's Tom Skilling posted some photos here.

Dewdrop said...

Sounds exciting. What's happening in Chi-town?

Rick said...

Dewdrop said...

I know. Can you believe that?! That's some serious Dewvoid!

Rick said...

Dew...We need you to go to uh...somewhere on the west coast for some...uh....weather recon..Yeah thats it, weather recon...;-P

Dewdrop said...

Do you realize what that would do...? We can't alter weather patterns like that.

Dewdrop said...

BTW, Carolina Mike wanted everyone to know he says, "HOWDY!"

Rick said...

Hurry and come to Georgia Mike!!

Dewdrop said...

He will be in town later this month. I'll let you know when I know more.

Rick said...

You must be like his pesonal secretary now? Travel agent? Oh...Sorry...You are the official spokemodel for the team...;-)

Dewdrop said...

...I like to call it - friend... shaking head.

I am not anyone's secretary. I have actually tried to book hotels for him before during a chase... so possibly travel agent, but I don't get a commission, but I am NOT the SPOKESMODEL. eye roll.

Rick said...

touche'..not the team driver? ;-P

Dewdrop said...

Oh, come on, where is your sense of adventure? You're not basing that on the silly little swing incident, are you? That swing was at fault... just jumped right out in front of me. lol

Rick said...

Did the police show up and draw a chalk outline of the deceased swing? Hahira CSI!

Dewdrop said...

They did a paint sample off the lawnmower.

Mike said...

Remember, I'm driving... the tornadoes, hail and lightning will piose enough danger...we don't need a reckless driver added to the mix!

Dewdrop said...

Well, that frees me up for photography... otherwise I'd be taking pictures while I drive, and I know how you feel about that...

Mike said...

Well, now that I am not allowed behind the wheel either, who is goona drive? I like the way you think about being freed up for photography. As long as I survive in tact, I cannot wait!

Dewdrop said...

I like how you think about sparing us the gas cost. Perhaps, we could hire a driver...

Rick said...

I supply the video cameras, yall film while i drive?

Dewdrop said...

Chasing in the big rig...

Mike said...

Sounds good...leave the driving to the pro!

Dewdrop said...

Saves us the trouble of renting a vehicle and trying to explain the significant hail damage while wearing our team shirts. ;-)
