PostSubject: Latest storms in Western Mass   Thu Jul 28, 2011 1:42 pm

We're finally back home after being without power since Tuesday afternoon. A microburst blew through many of the same areas that were impacted by the June 1st tornadoes. One poor family in town was living in a trailer while their home is being rebuilt and the trailer was destroyed in Tuesday's storm. My family is all safe, so we're feeling blessed.

Here's a local story from one of the neighborhoods not far from our house: http://www.wwlp.com/dpp/news/local/hampden/debris-cleanup-continues-in-wilbraham

This photo gallery is from town and neighboring communities: http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2011/07/photo_gallery_western_mass_cle.html

Our next door neighbor lost a huge tree that just barely missed his home, and there are several other trees down along the drive up (we live at the bottom of the street on the cul-de-sac). I drove through some of the storm on Tuesday, but thankfully made it home right before the worst hit.

All I want to know is: who the heck in Western Mass ticked off Mother Nature? scratchead

Yes, I wonder about that too Cheryl. Tornadoes are so random. At least here on the coast we have some warning before Hurricans come on land. I'm bracing for a very active season. We are just about to get huge amounts of rain this weekend from Tropical Storm Don. We are so behind it will be a relief.
Glad you all are okay.

Thanks Gin.

Vanessa, a tornado like the one that ripped through our area in June hasn't been seen here for 50 years. Between the above average snow fall this winter and the extreme summer we're having, it definitely feels strange around here.

I've been wondering that for my neck of the woods! Ten days ago we were in a drought and today we're having flood warnings. Wednesday there was a tornado just a few miles west of my house. Thankfully, it was a very weak tornado!


Glad you have power again and I hope you didn't lose anything!
