Thankfully, I live in Arizona, so the worst weather we generally get are 'microbursts' and the rare tornado, unless you count the oppressive heat in the summer (and the humidity double whammy during monsoon season- Think houston in summer).

Stay safe everyone!

Yeah, microbursts can be scary. One early this month took out the carport roofs of a couple of trailers in our park. It's weird to see aluminum siding swirling around in the air - then running smack into high-voltage power lines.

Love microbursts in the desert after a hot day.  Impressive stuff, which usually precedes a wind storm of 30-40 kts and dust clouds a few hundred feet high marching along.  Fun stuff.  Reminds me, I still need to replace a tent pole.

Yep, and that's as specific as I'll get. 😺

That reminds me, I need to get my ladder back and see if I can re-nail those crown shingles that came off in that storm in July.

I'm getting really glad the most common thing about the weather here is moaning about it... ;)

I'm also in SC, well inland, and have the Davis weather station stuck up on a pipe clamped to the deck rail.  Unfortunately, the house blocks about 180 degrees and the trees block the rest, so the wind speed will be an accurate measurement of what passes over the deck; but, a poor relation to actual conditions.  I would need a 80-120 foot tower to get the anemometer into free air.  If the power and internet connection stays up, I'll post a few of the statistics from it.
