Severe Weather thread.

We all deal with severe weather in one way or another. So figured we need a thread for it. Whether its tornadoes, crazy snow, hurricanes, severe thunder storms, etc... Post up your experiences or if something is going now by you, whatever severe weather related, bring it here.

I've been interested in severe weather since I was young.

Don't forget any pics of storm damage, always interested to see what a powerful storm can do.

Here is some damage to my tacoma from a storm back in April. Good old Oklahoma weather. I am currently deployed, so I don't have actual photos of the storm - just the aftermath.

My wife just picked up the tacoma late last week from the autobody shop. I will be on leave shortly, so I will be able to check to see if the shop did a good job. The body shop quoted me $9,000+ for the repairs to my Tacoma, $7,700+ for my wife's Hyundai Tucson, and $9,000+ in structure damage to the house and other property. By no means does this come anywhere close to those affected in Moore, OK which is only a little over 1 hour away form us.

My dad had some hail damage on his truck a year back, and the insurance co sent out a dent guy. The guy was a magician. He fixed them on the spot and can't even see where the dents where.

Kind of has to do with this thread, but anyone in Philly have anything to say about some of the t-storms going on today? My mom is flying to Greece and her flight to Greece leaves from Philly and we are hoping for no delays. Weather channel says it will be pretty strong today.

was driving this

Untitled by beavis0076, on Flickr

across the Chesapeake bridge (4.3 miles long) in hurricane Floyd in 99..... was one of the scarriest moment in my life.. we were the last car they let through and then closed the bridge. My fiber glass roof was held on my a few woodscrews.. waves were comming over the bridge and I could only do about 10-15 mph..so we were the only ones out there because all of the other cars booked it outta there. and at that speed i was all over both lanes with my sloppy steering and the huge winds. I was positive the top was going to rip off and fly into the bay... it was scary as sh!t.. made it though.. :-)
