Default Glad to be inside today!

I just made it home with several sheets of Birch plywood and got it unloaded before the rain came. Lots of thunderstorms in the area. Now a report has come in of a house (trailer house) lifted into the air in San Leon, which is fairly close to where Salty Dawg lives. It is about 20 miles from me.

If you check the picture attached, I live in the area just under the "O" in "Houston". Salty Dawg lives somewhere near where the cross hair is (radar location). San Leon is nearby along the Galveston Bay shoreline.

Glad to hear you dodged a major . Nothing worse than transporting wood sheeting and a wind /rain storm comes up from no where !

I was lucky, I guess. I got all three sheets broke down to manageable size. I think I have all the pieces (including shelves) for four wall cabinets, and part of a fifth.

There is more rain in the forecast but I will be inside, high and dry. Heck I might even post a pic or three. :-)

Mike,
what do the measurements on the left hand side refer to? mm/hr? in/hr?

The color chart is a guide to the intensity of the weather shown on the radar, at least that is the way I see it.

When the red area passed over us, there was a lot of rain, thunder and some lightening.
