I made a post sometime ago but have been asked about the tornado incident in PCB/PC..... I was on the computer on this site...NWS, my level III radar running(feeling quite like a little weatherman at this point) and Ch 7 WJHG on behind me. JK and crew were on at the top & bottom of the hour w/ updates on Ivan. I had a few hooks as it appeared on my radar so I was ready to send a severe wx report to Tally, I figured a severe T'storm shortly.... well about then JK is alarmed by his Vipir radar and has Greg M. pan around w/ the tower cam.... I think everyone knows the rest.... I did manage to click off my report to Tally of a tornado... ran to the living room where my wife was watching JK... I got her into the safe room (yes, I really had one ready) grabbed my camera, and yes, stepped outside. I have seen a few tornados from a good distance but I have never seen anything like this. It was huge and I am sure it passed right over or near us but had lifted back up. There was a fair amount of debris floating in the air but I kept dropping the damn camera. I got one pic but it is not very good and at this point I decided to get inside. I wanted to share this with you all but I had lost internet during the event.... sort of spooky...the last radar loop I had was 4:05pm CDT. So anyway we spent the rest of the night w/ my good buddy JK and crew as he/they went on to do a truly fantastic job and I know he saved some lives that night. About it that I can think of.
Coop...BTW no NOAA radio after that, tornado got it. WJHG was the Wx radio....still is.
