DFW Y'all okay?

Survived the storms on Tuesay. I work about a mile north of the
airport off Freeport pkwy. My car looks like it's trying to be a golf ball,
but at least I still have windows, a lot didn't.

So, y'all okay? damage? injuries?

Marty

I watch that entire episode live on CNN and I am amazed that there weren't a significant number of deaths and more injured. "Y'all" certainly dodge a bullet there.....

Be Safe!

My only evidence there was weather was that my pool had 2 more inches of water in it and that the bird poop on my Honda was softened up when I got home from work that night.
My home and workplace were in a relatively mild zone between 2 parallel tracks of awful storms.
We don't have windows at work, our local area network was pretty busy downloading the webcams/radar/news/weather websites.
The bluebonnets are truly awesome this year, flowers very fragrant, temps are awesome, everything is green and pretty, birds are singing.
Gotta love spring in TX. Never a dull moment.

I live in the middle of Irving and we missed everything but the rain.

I have a coworker that lives in Coppell and his house got hit by severe hail- broke some windows, tore off his gutters, etc.

I worked on a new school for Dallas ISD, it is about a half mile from that truckstop in southeast Dallas that got hit hard.

My house had the severe hail last summer so we weren't interested in getting any more.

so far I know of 3 people parked at my work who's cars have been
totaled by the insurance adjusters. Mine goes in for estimate
tuesday, keeping fingers crossed all it's gonna cost me is the
deductible.

Since nk and I work and live near each other, I guess I can just +1 her report. The heavy stuff really started about 5-10 miles east of our neighborhood, and moved further east from there.

Hey Marty,

Over here by Love Field it really wasn't too bad. It got real dark, the wind picked up, and we got some hard rain for a bit but no damage that I'm aware of. It did look pretty scary for a while.
