I was there for a matter of minutes before the skies opened up and the
weather alert sirens started to screech! So I tried to make contact with the
other NCS, N8AZC, Mike in central ohio before I pulled the plugs and
disconnected all eleven antennas!
I 'think' that Mike heard me, as he did mention he thought that he heard me
Thanks to N8AZC for picking up the slack and standig in for me while I hid
under the bed hoping one of those bolts from Zeus did not decide to target
one of my four towers for a short path to ground! MI has really had a lot of
severe weather this year, more then in the past several decades. Fortunately
no deadly tornados, at least not yet!
Today a lot of power lines went down, many were hit by lightning. One home
about a mile from me was hit and caught fire.
Hopefully tomorrow the forecast of more thunderstorms will be wrong! Hope to
hear you Saturday only guys next Saturday.
