  I get it now. We talked about spending the night. Glad we didn't.

Hey from Water Tower to the park was good. 

KY3 came from Lebanon stopped at start of damage oh few tree limbs down at the Golf Course. All they had to do is go another couple hundred yards. 

No we did not set Sirens off. All our Weather Stations showed nothing.  We don't set off Sirens until 70 MPH winds. Every thing we have showed 40 MPH winds.

No there is no way we can predict Micro Burst.

We have Stations all through SW Missouri but if the Micro Burst doesn't hit them we don't know about it. 

I know a guy that lives just around the corner all he knew is Electric went out.

We came in the back way from Independence Rd. to A, and it cut one hell of a path through there. 

Wasn't anything "micro" about that "burst".   2 miles wide, and about 5-6 miles long from what I could tell.  Lots of trees and power line damage. 

It looked like Racer dudes new barn caught the worst of it, as far as structure damage, and those people with all the campers out in the open field along 64 don't even know how lucky they were. How did it not just decimate that place?    It's amazing how those storms can do that.    

The one that took my place in '06 destroyed EVERYTHING, but spared a stupid fancy china cabinet full of wine/champaign glasses  Not even a scratch on that ignorant thing.   🙄

Growing up in south Oklahoma we always heard these stories or found these items. Its just the way it was, seemed normal to us. 

"Hey dad my bike that was in the shed is about 30 foot in the air wrapped around a tree and I have no idea where the shed is"

In the spring and fall you were always on high alert. Dark clouds were serious business. The only ones that really scared me were the really big ones that that stayed on the ground for a long time and you knew they were coming. The sounds you hear hiding in a cellar are very haunting.

Microburst, something I don't recall hearing of, but I've seen their results and wondered what kind of wind  did that. 

Quote

In meteorology, a downburst is a strong downward and outward gushing wind system that emanates from a point source above and blows radially, that is, in straight lines in all directions from the area of impact at surface level. Capable of producing damaging winds, it may sometimes be confused with a tornado, where high-velocity winds circle a central area, and air moves inward and upward.
