I don't think I've ever been so nervous as I was last night,waiting for that storm system to pass.
I started getting calls around 6pm or so, everyone saying that the storms were nearing, and that they would hit after midnight.
Our whole area was under tornado watch until 2am, which then got extended until 8am. The storm cell that rolled through Alabama killing all of those people was frightfully close to us. The weatherman was coming onto the TV about every fifteen minutes with updates.
In the end, all we got was a thunderstorm, which wasn't so bad considering what happened to so many other people.
