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 
calling him!

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.
