Im Forced To Leave......

United States
June 5, 2008 3:35pm CST
Well you read that right Im about to be forced to leave Mylot......for the night. We have some storms coming that could get to be severe. Now I have a satellite connection so I will lose the internet for sure and that just sucks. Hopefully it dont get as bad as they are predicting tonight since they are saying strong winds damaging hail and possible tornados. Now I do worry I thank my mom for that my kids are at school still and im hoping they get them home soon or keep em late. Ill be back if I can later.

I hope you all will be alright. I myself will have to turn my computer off also, we have wireless internet and even now its giving me problems, we're having winds up to 45 mph right now and its messing with my satellite. My computer is getting slow, and whenever the wind comes up I've noticed thats when I get the error pages. We're in for big storms also this evening, hail, tornados, damaging winds. We are fortunate that our local news station has a program that you sign up for and whenever your in danger of a tornado or storm they will call you on your phone, and tell you to take cover that a storm is right in your area. It costs 6.00 a yr. but everybody thinks its worth it. I hope we all make it thru this evening...take care..

I understand what you mean their minnie - I imagine he is impossible to control! I think Heavens and I are both very relieved that the rain was so heavy that it kept him from doing anything too silly! xxx

It seems that a lot of my friends from across the water are being harassed by awful storms and I feel for you all. I hate the fact that you get such bad storms over there and now that I am friends with a lot of you I get quite worried! I really hope that the weather changes and gets better for you and that they just die out into nothing. In the meantime take lots of care of yourself, see ya later xz

The past week or so here in missouri the storms have picked up. Weve had to deal with flooding and heavy lightening lately. im on dial up so each time it rumbles i have to disconnect and shut down. ive lost 3 modems in 5 years to storms. there is no other options but dial up out here where i live and that bites- lol.

hi minnie thats really scary. I hope it doesnt come right where you are or that it sort of lightens up by then. when I was a kid living in South Dakota we had so many of those tornado warnings and ironically the tornadoes always skipped our farm and hit other people's farms instead. I hope your kids get home safely before the storms get there. good luck and God bless.

The weather has been rough this year. I read in the paper the other day that the seasons are changing and we can expect tornadoes anytime of the year. I hope it doesn't get that bad. Stay safe.

It just hit me a little while ago. had hail about dime sized for a few seconds then the skies opened up flooding the street out front. Traffic was crawling it rained so hard. I didn't get time to get a phgoto of the hail as it started raining and melting it right away. It's cleared up a bit now though. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM DADDY!!~

I always shut down and unplug my PC when we get storms. I don't want my stuff being zapped. I had a TV that got zapped, I don't want that for my PC. We have everything plugged into power strips, but that is not fool proof, I don't like taking chances. I hope the storms aren't too bad, we might have some too. I know its hot and muggy now.

Buy a surge protector and that wo't happen. They cost only $10 and up for decent ones. I use my puter till the power goes out and have yet to have a problem other than losing whatever work wasn't saved prior. get a surge protector. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

We have all our stuff plugged into surge protecters, but we still don't like taking chances. Once your house has been hit by lightning you have a tendency to be extra careful. The surge protecters are supposed to protect your stuff but you never know. Lightning can be dangerous stuff.

I hope the storm will not be so serious. Lately it seems that there are severe natural disasters happen in some countries. It will be good enough to stay well. I love China

The weather across the country has been crazy...storms, tornadoes, hot, cold...ugh! I hope the storms don't get too severe up there. I'll admit, I like a good thunder storm, but not the kind that actually get scary.

It's fine that you leave myLot for awhile because you should take care of yourself first, right? You should be able to prioritize the things which you needed to set as your goals (and as of your situation now, it would be to stay safe) Hope your kids are safe! and God bless in your home town. :)
