I won't capture any of this on video, but I know for a fact tons of other people probably will. As it stands right
now, I'm seeing Supercells, after Supercells lining up one by one, Southeast of Indiana/West Kentucky. Each storm has a Tornado Warning.
This is a classic... the kind of storms I'm use to seeing on radar around Oklahoma, Kansas, etc. And it's sunny here right
now. Sun = very bad. Fuel for the storms. haha... I just hope no one dies. These storms are legit looking deadly right now.

Oh and also, Storm Chaser Reed Timmer is covering this as well on his twitter. Just found out a couple seconds ago.

@xmaslightguy, yeah that storm has been all over the news lol, it was even talked about during talks about potential severe
weather over here.
Speaking of that, there is a tornadic storm heading up quickly towards my area, as of right now. Not sure if there's a tornado
on the ground, but I was able to detect the storms rotation easily even without knowing there was a tornado warning issued for it.
Looks like it *might* be a legit supercell. We'll see if it weakens before it gets to Ohio.

@suzukir122:
Yep its gone now, we had that storm yesterday.

Where I'm at, it wasn't all that bad. You deff wouldn't want to have been out driving around in it or anything, but we didn't get hit as hard as some parts of the state (heavy snow & wind, but didn't get to 80mph gusts here). Thought we might lose power for awhile because the lights kept blinking/flickering, but it never went out.

I did break out the video camera & record a couple short vids, haven't looked at 'em yet, but I don't think anything worth YouTube'ing

@Xmaslightguy, is your state part of that "Bomb Cyclone" blizzard that I keep hearing about in the news? That
Blizzard is making history apparently, packing winds of up to 80mph

Not today, but on Sunday I put new ballasts in a 8xT6-HO grow-light fixture (changed from instant-to programmed start) & built a stand for it.
Yesterday evening, I planted some of my Tomato seeds in pots (what above grow-light is for) in a week or so when the seeds start coming up I'll fire up that light.

I have a 2nd light to do (maybe on the weekend). Already have the boards for its stand, just need to cut one of 'em.
This will be the 1st year I'll be using all T5-HO, The old T8 & T12 won't be needed
(unless on the slim chance I need a 3rd light, then the 6x T8 comes back out)
