This cell seemed to catch everyone off guard. We watched the initial coverage till 1:30 or so and Dan said he thought the worst was over and that we'd only see straight line winds from then on and could just "Go on to bed." Then at 3 or so I'm awakened by a TW for this cell - which eventually headed toward my house! We had an eventful morning, to say the least.

These cells stubbornly held their own. The amount of wind shear in the atmosphere was amazing and there was more instability than the models predicted. I was thinking about you and a friend of mine in Lawrence County. I also called my boys and parents to get them in a safe place....I got very little sleep....
