If you are/have been in the path of today's storms, please drop a comment below to let us know you're okay - or whether you need anything.
Please note: Please go to weatherdude's diary for status updates on actual weather and other important info. This diary is purely for checking in and letting concerned folks know you're all right. [Yeah, yeah - "concerned folks" also = me, since there are several Kossacks whom I dearly love who are in PA, NY, New England, and other affected areas.]

No worries about us in this area. Rain, thunder, a little lightning, occasional winds - all normal, and very welcome, at this time of year. But other folks aren't so lucky, so keep 'em in your thoughts and prayers.
