So apparently that storm last night was a Derecho. My husband and father went outside to observe. I stayed inside fending off thoughts of tornadoes plowing through. Granted, we never get tornadoes here, but it was fairly obvious from the outset that this was no regular storm. Everything about it felt wrong to me. We had no touch downs in our area, though some places did. And turns out that derecho’s typically do spawn many tornadoes. This particular one did not. Also, most of these storms are confined to the midwest. I’d never heard of one before today. Heck of a storm.
