Yeah, Joplin is 75 miles west of Springfield, so the RPPR crew is fine. Still have thunderstorms over here though.

Essentially, if that same storm had veered a bit north instead of a bit south as it came east, we all could have gotten it in the face. A bit as in about 10 miles. I was watching the radar with *extreme* intent about 710 last night.

Working in Edmond, I can attest to that. My car got washed with 60mph near-horizontal rain. I'm really glad it didn't get any worse than that, because our shelter is in an unventilated men's restroom  :(

I'm glad you made it through it, that storm was brutal.
