Wow. We are truly blessed here in Manchester! The worst of the storms went to the north & south of us: 20 homes were lifted off their foundations in southern Tennessee and a huge tornado was spotted going east on I-40 toward Nashville. What did we get? A couple of sprinkles amid mostly sunshine. My experience with a tornado was unforgettable: it was night. We were in Opelika, Alabama's (right next to Auburn) historic district. BIG storm. I was on our wraparound porch watching the storm (Darling Bride wanted us all in the basement... I was too fascinated. Suddenly, flashes of GREEN LIGHTNING erupted and I heard the most God-awful noise I have ever heard: it sounded (not like a freight train) like a heavy filing cabinet being scooted across a concrete floor. My only theory was that it was the sound of thunder bouncing around off hail in the clouds... I really have no idea. Anyway, we were again spared: next morning, NO DAMAGE to our home. Huge trees were uprooted and laid down gently just a block to the east. I will never forget the green lightning or that sound... which I hope to never hear again.
