Aside from a screen door that nearly flew off the hinges but bent a door-closer to crap, I'm ok.

I quite litterally had a tree fall blocking my path on a 5 lane road. Fortunately, I was the only idiot trying to drive home in the storm, and was able to U-Turn and try a different route. Nothing like being caught in a building comprised almost entirely of glass with fierce winds beating down on you I may start watching weather reports

Needless to say, my power just came online, as I was writing this message.

1998, I was in the then First American Center, downtown right before the storm, but was lucky enough to make it to my office which was in the PS garage building, offices. We watched USPS boxes blowing down the street like they were paper, then decided we best hit the basement, a few seconds later all the glass on the first level blew out. That building was shaking like a leaf. The partition glass walls in the basement were vibrating so much they sounded like saw blades, for those that don't know this building it's a 12 story building the basement and first level are offices the next 11 levels are all parking garage, steel and concrete.

I was on vacation and put the Weather Channel on and the guy said "if there are any trees still standing in Middle TN, I'd like to know about it because there were some ferocious storms through there."

Kinda made me worry a little for a few days, but then got home and there wasn't anything but one big branch on the house. No damage to the roof or anything, just little branches down in the yard, and the clocks were flashing. But all my neighbors said it was bad. Glad I missed it.

i was coming back from a movie in green hills(driving back to cool springs, where my hotel was) and all of a sudden...everything hit the fan. there was leaves\sticks\garbage swirling around all over hillsboro road and trees\signs were blowing all over the place. we decided it might be best to forego dinner for the moment and get inside to figure out what was going on. bow echoes are pretty awesome, i must say.
