severe weather

I'm just ::slightly:: distracted by Glenn Burns and the Severe Weather Team on Channel 2.  Tonight, I came to the conclusion that Spring has got to be the most exciting time at any sort of weather center (relatively speaking and depending on your location).  For us, the threats of tornadoes and thunderstorms rule the day.  And tonight, it looks like it's going to be a doozy.  They're talking fatalities in other states, hail, BTI indexes, tornadoes, lightning, and PDS.

What's a PDS you ask?
It's a "Potentially Dangerous Situation" and they are so serious that they are very rarely issued - which makes me wonder about the whole "potentially" part.  Maybe it should be a DDS... a "definitely dangerous situation".  Anywho, I believe the whole of North Georgia is under this PDS as well as the various sundries of watches and warnings.

I don't think sleep is going to come easy tonight.  If it does, I have a feeling it is going to be on the sofa, in front of the tv, awkwardly contorting around the already-sleeping-husband who is himself awkwardly contorted half on the sofa, and half off.  Whatev.

Prayers for everyone who is in the path of the storm!

Random picture for the post, but a picture nonetheless.  :)
