That giant sucking sound was the Husky football team practicing.
I'm looking out over the U right now and no tornadoes, scarecrows, tin men or other effluvia are present.
from the NOAA website:
A BRIEF FUNNEL CLOUD IS ALSO POSSIBLE WITH THIS STORM.
I've been staring out the office windows for hours now. I've heard a bit of thunder but so far have seen more drunks than funnel clouds.
Nice. It should be a fun bike ride home from work today.
i'm happy as hell that I wasn't on 520 when that was happening on lake washington. My two worst nightmares turned true for 520 would be 1. earthquake 2. a water sprout happening while i'm on the bridge heading back home
supposedly water spouts aren't that big of a deal. just a lot of water moving at a high velocity. wait, never mind.
Hey, people, THAT'S WHAT IT'S LIKE AROUND HERE! If you don't like rain and cold and tornados in August, move!
Sorry -- momentarily possessed by a native Seattleite there.
Yes. The entire U District is now a flattened wasteland. It's on the way to Capitol Hill. You should all flee for your lives, right now, and not come back, because it will never be safe again.
Is that why Seattle traffic is currently fucked or is that the fault of the Mariners?
Oh my god Dan- I read that thinking, "Dan's gonna FLIP OUT when he reads this!"
Too fucking funny.
@11 - Since nobody goes to Mariners games anymore, I suspect it's the weather.
There was apparently a big event with motivational speakers at Key Arena today. Traffic on lower Queen Anne has been effed.
There was lightning too, but after it struck the Republican with a sign, it went away.
@14 - Some weird cult of personality named Zig Zigler, which inevitably brings to mind Dirk Diggler, which caused me to laugh all morning long while watching these suits scurrying around in their Lexi looking for nonexistent parking spots just to catch a glimpse of that magical wang.
NOAA had more info last night. There was one sighting and data will be examined to confirm it. No touchdowns, though. A funnel cloud is not a tornado.
And Washington does get them, statistically about one a year state-wide.
@8: Good. You're learning.
