Was jsut about to post that. Well, here it is anyway, with the county lines. It doesn't look like it will last to long, but it's the most red I've seen on the doppler in a while!

Actually, the wind has picked up big time now. 20 minutes ago the flags across the way were hanging, now they are flapping horizontally like mad. I can see the reflection of lightning in the building next to me, and dust is blowing up off the shoulders of the 75 entrance ramp.
