Severe T-Storm Warning

 6:19 AM - All right, so the tornado warning for Jackson County was cancelled. This large area may see 60 mph wind gusts. 

When I heard the weather radio going off, and it was already sounding nasty outside and looking sort of concerning on radar, I got up like I might head to a safer spot, and my wild, crazy, lovable little cat headed for our shelter room right away and meowed at me, concerned. Every other cat I've had since I lived here, I had to fight to get to shelter even if it was a lot more dangerous. This time it didn't end up being all that serious here, but he was making sure. I love that guy. Oddly enough he turns a year old today. Been up all night, going to say random stuff. 

I would still take these storms seriously, but I am glad for no tornado warnings right now. We kept having one right after the other. Have heard of no damage or injuries in those areas so far, and am glad of that. 

6:26 - The Severe Thunderstorm Watch is being trimmed back behind the squall line. So up around Muscle Shoals or places like Marion and Winston Counties are in the clear. Cullman County will be in the clear soon. No more severe weather after this squall line passes you this morning. 

6:31 - And I just have to give a shoutout to James Spann, who apparently was doing his morning weather briefing that he does from home. I saw where his morning guy was covering the tornado warning in Lamar County, but then I switched over to Taylor Sarallo and Stephanie Walker on the other station. And apparently James had to extend his usual weather forecast from home to cover that tornado warning too. That's what you call dedication. And he's been on the air since at least the 70's I think, radio or TV. The situation strikes me as funny, but I love to see when people are that devoted to whatever they do. Especially when it is a public service like that. 

Going to post the severe weather statement on this separately. this even tis winding down and only some stuff left in far Northeast Alabama. But they count too. Starting a new post . . .
