I miss the thunderboomers. Grew up in Springfield Mass as a youngster...got quite a few there...best ones were when we lived in the Rockies. We might get one or two small ones per year here.I always like a good thunderstorm. Seems we don't get as many as we used to.
round 2 of thunderstorms about to start here. Sky is very dark and the wind just stopped.
not a good omen.
EDIT: the wind just started up again in the opposite direction.
Thunderstorms are going through here now. I am west of Toronto and east of Detroit.Looking at national radar there appear to be several nasty storms and a possible bow-echo southwest of Toronto. These look to be part of a front moving SW to NE.
Also one wicked looking storm which looks to have a slight rotation moving NE over central PA.
Tornado warning in effect for:
At 8:46 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm that is possibly producing a tornado. Damaging winds, large hail and locally intense rainfall are also possible.
- London - Parkhill - Eastern Middlesex County
Tornado just southeast of Dorchester may reach the Ingersoll area by 9.15 PM.
This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately.
Go indoors to a room on the lowest floor, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell or interior closet. Leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers and other temporary or free-standing shelter, and move to a strong building if you can. As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris.
Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

I so wanted to see the destructive power of a tornado on a old house or something from a distance, i hear its quite the ride. I had one though nearly touch down, all i could remember was all the near by trees swirling in circles. That was intense, big pieces of branches and stuff landed all over the neighborhood but it never touched down. Oddly was VERY quiet.We had 2 confirmed tornado touchdowns last night.
