Hey guys just thought id check and see if everyone is alright. I was out about driving around. and then the warnings started popping up and then started hailing. then i took off home and went under my house and locked up. Murfreesboro, smyrna and la vergne all got hit super super hard murfreesboro is worst of all. hope everyone is alright.
Nothing in my area but my inlaws live in the 'boro and had us all in panic mode for a couple of hours until everyone could check in. A few trees were down and everyone is ok.
Checked on Kevin [KDPate] yesterday and he's ok.
We got a few trees that got hit, almost damaged the horse barn, lost some shingles off the house as well. The tree that fell barely touched it, had it been one of the bigger trees in that same area I would have been SOL. I'll try to get some picks of it this afternoon and post them. Wind can be a powerful force that's for sure.
Ironically I grew up in tornado alley(well the southern fring of it in Dallas) and I haven't had this type of damage til I moved up here.
Just got back home from Knoxville and no damage to report here. Tornado started only a 3/4 mile from my house Got a chance to see some of the damage and it is just unbeleivable; the TV videos don't do it justice. They have several areas blocked off by MPD and THP due to rubberneckers. Just type in "Murfreesboro tornado" on you tube if you want to see some incredible footage.
