Storm Recap

>> Thursday, November 16, 2006

Well, severe weather raked through the viewing area last night. Wind damage was reported in several counties, and some power outages have occurred. In fact, my oldest daughter has had school cancelled today due to power being out at her school.

It looks like areas a little west of Charlotte saw the worst of the damage in the Charlotte News 14 Carolina viewing area. Locations in Gaston and Lincoln counties reported wind damage. Tornado warnings were even issued for Yadkin and Guilford counties in the Triad viewing area.

I have always been fascinated watching thunderstorms roll through. I was afraid of night-time thunderstorms as a child, but that fear turned to respect and awe as I grew older. Being a broadcast meteorologist, you hardly ever get to actually watch storms as they move through. You are always on the air during those times, trying to keep folks safe as severe weather and storms are occurring. Don't get me wrong, I love severe weather coverage, and that is by far the most important part of our job. But, I will say it was a bit of a treat for me last night. As the line of storms rolled through our area, it was nice to be able to just sit and watch the beauty of night-time thunderstorms.
