Hail Hail, the Storm's All Here

When I got back to San Jose, I had four voicemails from Lisa on Skype. Alas, the microphone on her computer had come unplugged, so they were all blanks, but I called her back. She's been having severe thunderstorms in Fernley, to the extent that Lisa had a look at the clouds on the horizon and thought there were the beginnings of funnel clouds. We aren't sure if you get tornadoes here, but she got travelswithkuma in his travel pack and made sure she had access to what we're calling the storm shelter, that being the one room in the house that has no windows and is as near the center of the house as possible. Fortunately it didn't come to that, but there were some wild winds and heavy, short-lived rains. It cooled down nicely when it was raining, but after each cell moved through, Lisa said it then got miserably hot and humid behind it. But as of 9 PM tonight, nothing blew away and everything is where it should be.
