    Unhappy Worst weather within 9-10 years, record-breaking rainfall from '73

    Last night in pittsburgh, all surrounding sothwest PA, Eatern OH, WV panhandle, there were storms from about 6:30-11. Luckily, Thanks to quick thinking, and reporters saying there may be hail, i was able to save my plants. As soon as i heard, i ran outside to my neps, and brought them in, and my mom got my plants in the pond there. No plants were damaged, except some bent over milkweed. Now, i normally don't get scared by storms, but i held my ears for the thunder, it was so loud.

    Tornadic weather is definitely no fun. Glad you were able to save your plants though. I grew up in Harris County, (essentially NW Houston). Tornadoes were very common there, and it was almost like living in fear... I know how you feel.

    I had my plants outside during it, under a glass table on the deck. My plants that were in those plastic containers from Lowe's were pretty full of water, with my butterwort floating.

    I went out the morning after and took some pictures. They even said my name on the air on WTAE when they showed one of the pictures I submitted. ^_^

    http://picasaweb.google.com/Tim.Cherepko/Jun182009# for pictures I took of damage at the local ballfields. I returned some minnows from the parking lot and thick mud in the fields to the creek. I moved several crayfish from the parking lot to over near the creek.

    Our sump pump, we found out, was broken, but we had no damage, because my dad and I bucketed it out of the sump pit. Wasn't too bad. I put in a new sump pump yesterday.

    It was on the 5:00 news on WTAE on the day after the storm. They showed another picture I took on the 6:00 news.
